The journey to eat continues this week at Casa de Tamales. I didn’t know at the time when Bo and I stopped in but this brand new restaurant is garnering quite a lot of buzz around Fresno and I soon found out why. We actually stopped here on our way to a taquaria and were only going to pick up a menu but things looked so interesting we chose instead to place an order and give this place a go. What I instantly noticed was the almost meticulous planning that had gone into this little restaurant. It was clean, immaculate even, the menu was flawless, the logo is incredibly brand-able and you had to ask if this was actually a chain. The answer is no, this is the only Casa de Tamales but I almost see it as impossible that this place wouldn’t become a chain or even a franchise in the near future. This is a family owned establishment and yes they have a story but they have a website for that. I am here to tell you about tamales.
