My review of three new Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants -- Taqueria la Monarca in University City, Amigo Joe's on Southwest Avenue and Latitude 26° in Dogtown -- is now available online. In this week's Back of the House slideshow, Jennifer Silverberg takes you into the kitchen of Taqueria la Monarca, where you can see such delicious dishes as the tamales (pictured right) being made.
The friendly 24 year old, Jose Coronel, seems to be the man-in-charge in this family owned Taqueria.  See photo slide show here. - PHOTO: JENNIFER SILVERBERG
