Home / The Journey / Photo Blog / Tamal Oaxaqueño, Oaxaca Mexico



I’ve said before, I’ll say it again – Oaxacan food is some of the best in the world. ⁣

And this, my friends, is a Oaxacan tamale. Not the cylindrical corn husked steaming parcel of deliciousness you may be used to. But instead it’s flatter, with more corners and wrapped in a banana leaf. No less delicious though!⁣

Feeling tempted to try making them at home while I’m here in NZ and far, far away from my beloved Oaxaca.⁣ So stay tuned for my adventures in trying to make a mole, and find banana leaves here in New Zealand!
