The Tamale Lady won't come to you.

But now you can come to her.

The legendary purveyor of delicious late-night meals at Mission District bars has secured a brick-and-mortar restaurant of her very own, according to Mission Local.

Virginia Ramos, as she is called, will occupy space at 16th and Mission streets, according to the San Francisco Bay Guardian.

The Tamale Lady had sold her masa-made corn-wrapped rectangles of goodness out of a cooler toted to bars like Zeitgeist, but health department officials put a stop to that in June.

The lease is expected to be finalized in January, the newspapers reported.
