THE BRONX - Gregorio Castro is bringing a taste of Mexico to the Bronx with his tamales.

He credits his grandparents' family recipe for his success as a street vendor.

Along with his family, he says he sells more than 200 tamales a day, seven days a week — rain or shine.

He says he hopes his son will take over the business when he retires.
