Street Meat: Tacos La Perla Tamales

Find them: Daily, in the parking lot adjacent to Fremont’s Islamic Center mosque, 4039 Irvington Ave. (near Fremont Blvd.)
What to get: You’ve had better pork fillings, but the masa on these thick and fluffy tamales ($2.00 each) has such a deep, husky sweetness you forget what’s inside.
Who’s in line: A FedEx driver, some homeless-looking dude on a bicycle, and skateboard kids in bulky hoodies.
