First served up by Rosa Bírquez in 1923 in L.A.'s original El Cholo Cafe (her grandson Ron Salisbury owns the restaurant group these days), the place's green corn tamales are a Southern California dining institution. On bites two and three, you'll find oozing sharp Cheddar cheese and Ortega chilies, which combined compete against the sweet corn with a snappy alternative.
