Last time we got tamales from a restaurant, everyone complained. They just were not as good as mine. I told them it was because of using cheese instead of lard. I have heart that starting with corn (nixtamal) makes the tamales and tortillas even better, but my one experiment with that just proved to me the difference wasn't worth quite that much work -- maybe if I had better equipment...

As for the homemade tortillas, they are good, but I wouldn't mind discovering the recipe used by some restaurants for the tortillas they make for soft tacos, for it might help me to improve my own.

You should try asking? Maybe not for the recipe, but if there is something different that they do, or an ingredient that kicks it up a notch. Can't hurt, if it is not a busy part of their day?
