    So very delicious!! Customer service was excellent, I needed the next day shipping and I was given prompt updates on my delivery. But to the important part – the tamales…Exceeded my expectations. And this is coming from someone who has made tamales myself and grew up with them. Highly recommend.

    I’ve received my tamales today and couldn’t be more pleased! They are delicious and taste like my abuelitas. I forgot how much I missed masa since I moved to the UK. LOL. Thank you Mexika, you have made my Christmas complete.

    I ordered the pork tamales for Christmas holidays. Customer service is excellent and delivery is super fast. These are the best tamales that I have found since moving to England in 2000 from California. I have placed another order and this time I have ordered the pork (again) chicken, refried beans and cheese, and the chocolate tamales… Along with some other supplies… Thank you Mexika for such good food and service 🙂
