Tamales for the holidays are a tradition for many. But not everyone is lucky to have family nearby or a local resource for these delicious, masa-encased morsels, which are steamed in corn husks and wrapped like individual presents. Agave has been a tamale go-to on the Eastside for years — and it’s ready for the holidays.
People typically call ahead to place large orders, freezing the tamales for later. But if you want instant gratification, Agave is continuing its family dinners for four, which include prepared chicken tamales topped with Mexican crema and sides of pinto beans, Spanish rice, and chips and salsa. The restaurant also has similar family-style ready-to-eat meals featuring fajitas, burritos, or enchiladas, with the option to add other sides, as well as margarita kits. It’s the perfect season to enjoy a freshly prepared meal now or a supply of tamales to dig into through the new year. Available to order at both Kent and Redmond locations.
