So I finally tried Pamonha! Day 152, I just happen to cross paths with a man with a cart selling this corn based treat, along with a few others.
It was pretty darn good. A pamonha is similar to a tamale, but a bit sweeter and the contents are less ground. The one I bought was pretty dense so I didn’t finish the entire thing, but I can imagine how one might develop a taste for it.
Yum! Definitely worth a try. Thanks for all the recommendations!
