[WATCH] Meet Evelia Coyotzi, The Dollar Tamale Queen of New York City

Evelia Coyotzi has been selling dollar tamales in Corona, Queens since 2001. Her team starts every day around 9 PM, cooking through the night, so that by 4 AM, they're outside the Junction Boulevard subway stop selling her tamales. Originally from Tlaxcala, Mexico, Evelia makes a large variety of tamales, like tamales con rajas, mole, pollo verde, Oaxacan tamales and more, which she sells for $1-2 apiece out of a pushcart.

Find Evelia's Tamales at her street cart outside the Junction Boulevard 7-train subway stop in Corona, Queens.
