After being closed for nearly a month (making a few people nervous), Factory Tamal reopens this morning at at 63 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and Cooper Square.
EVG regular Lola Sáenz spotted owner Fernando Lopez inside the shop getting everything ready for serving his delicious tamales, egg sandwiches and panini.
They'd been busy at the lower Ludlow Street location ... as well as prepping an entry in the 14th annual Food Film Festival taking place in March. Lopez is featured in the short "Food of Love: Tamale Man," one of the festival's official selections.
The EV outpost of Factory Tamal opened in early February, and is an excellent inexpensive eats spot to consider. You can find their website and menu here.
