Birmingham has becoming a mecca for foodies, but Delta Blues Hot Tamales Birmingham has remained a favorite.
First of all, there’s no denying that the dishes they serve are absolutely delicious. One of the classics here is the Mississippi Melt. You have tamales with toppings of charred corn relish, Crossroads Queso, and simmering sauce.
Another bestseller is the smothered chicken which is smothered in queso and turnip greens, and the result is fantastic.
Then you also have to factor in how they very much care for those with dietary needs and restrictions. Fawn and Adam Freis started the restaurant to be able to serve good food to those with food allergies. Fawn herself has Celiac disease and she needs a gluten-free diet.
So, if you have any of the following dietary restrictions, you’ll be delighted to know that you can eat good food without worrying about anything:
- Sesame seed free
- Peanut or tree nut free
- Egg free
- Dairy free
- Soy free
- Vegan dishes
Don’t think that these dishes are lacking in flavor either. Even if you’re not a vegan, you have to try the vegan version of the “Holy Chipotle”. This is comprised of black bean tamales with a topping of tomatoes, chipotle-lime sauce, and charred corn relish.
Other vegan dishes include tomato cucumber salad, butterbean hummus, and fried pickles. You can also try the sweet potato mash made with cane sugar.
