Sweet tamales are very popular in Mexico as a dessert or brunch option. Take your pick from both of Picos’ best-selling sweet tamales: pina colada (with pineapple & coconut) and raisin (with raisins & vanilla). Don’t forget the sauce on the side!
Chef Arnaldo Richards was raised in Monterey, Mexico, where he began his career cooking at his family’s restaurants. A third-generation chef, he started learning his grandmother’s recipes at age 13, and many of those authentic Mexican dishes and sauces are still on the menu at his legendary restaurant, Picos, which opened in 1984 and remains one of Houston’s most renowned Mexican restaurants.
