Tina's story

My name is Tina Tamale Ramos. I am a third generation tamale girl descending from the legacy business, La Borinquena Mex-icatessen. This business was founded by my maternal grandmother back in 1944.

I currently live and work in same neighborhood that our family's shop is located in. This is also the neighborhood which my mother was born and raised in, called Old Oakland.

My dream is to continue in the footsteps of the strong women in my family that came before me and continue to expand our love of feeding the community, both in spirit and in delicious food.
