The phenomenon of foreign cuisines relocating can be traced along the paths of migration — when the Portuguese came to Massachusetts to work on whale ships, they brought along their recipe for fish stew, and when the British Empire welcomed the people of India from the British colonies, curry houses sprouted up along the streets of London. What once was simply the food of an outsider community, however, is now an inseparable part of the cultural identity of these places.
So what does all this mean for the hungry traveler? For one, it expands the culinary possibilities in cities large and small. Excellent, authentic international cuisine can be found not only in major metropolises, but also in places where tourists less frequently go.

Probably the best way to decide which street vendors to approach for food are the ones with the long lines.
In San Francisco the Tamale Lady is known for coming into bars with her wonderful Tamale’s. I’ve had my fill of those amazing tamales. To top it off Virginia (Tamale Lady) is always a pleasure to visit with and she remembers people too. So if visiting San Francisco and at a bar don’t hesitate trying the Tamale Lady’s food. She’s an icon in the Bay area.
