Hot Tamales may be considered more of a Delta favorite, but there are a few places on the Coast that make them from scratch.
Doris’ Hot Tamales, 10029 1st Ave., D’Iberville; the Tamale Shack, 1717 30th Ave., Gulfport; and La Nortena (just on Fridays) 224 Porter Ave., Biloxi, are the ones I know of.
Am I missing someone?
You might be surprised at the diversity you will find in the tamale recipes used throughout the state.

Occasionally you’ll find a shrimp tamale, or a turkey tamale, but most are pretty standard, using corn meal.
Give them a try.
