Lorena's Tamales at the 9 Pound Hammer

It's really nothing more than a storage space with a Dutch door for service, but Lorena's Tamales at the 9 Pound Hammer offers well-spiced, corn-husk-wrapped packages of wholesome goodness. The masa is a blank foil for the spicy chicken mole ($3.50)—the most complex and delicious of the three cash-only options (there's also pork verde, $2.50, and veggie, $2). And be sure to accept a container of the delicately smoky hot sauce. With a pint of Manny's from Georgetown Brewing across the street, one of these tamales (two is too much) is a perfect meal.—Adriana Grant
