New Tamale House Location To Open On The East Side

New, 11 comments

The Tamale House, home to some of Austin's most storied breakfast tacos beloved both near and far, will open a new location this Thursday, March 8th. We're guessing the SXSW timing isn't an accident: the Tamale House East is just a block from Plaza Saltillo, smack dab in super-happening central-east Austin, and they're even opening with special festival hours. Via a press release sent out this morning:

Continuing in the family tradition of the Original Tamale House on First and Congress in Historic Downtown Austin, and the Famous Tamale House on Airport, The Tamale House East will feature the same food you know and love, as well as some new culinary additions, including artisan tacos and local coffee
It's owned and operated by the Valera family, who for three generations have been warming the hungover bellies of beer-logged Austinites.
Inka Cinko Productions is proud to announce the opening of The Tamale House East on Thursday March 8, 2012. Facing the light rail and a block from Plaza Saltillo, the location of the new Tamale House East is in the heart of Central East Austin at 1707 East Sixth Street Austin, TX 78702.

Continuing in the family tradition of the Original Tamale House on First and Congress in Historic Downtown Austin, and the Famous Tamale House on Airport, The Tamale House East will feature the same food you know and love, as well as some new culinary additions, including artisan tacos and local coffee.
