Fairmont City's Mi Tierra Tienda y Taqueria (3121 Collinsville Road, Fairmont City, Illinois; 618-271-8168) is a tiny, out-of-the-way spot -- and even after you've arrived, you still have to look for the restaurant inside it. But, oh man, is it worth it. My review of Mi Tierra is now available online.
Jennifer Silverberg's slideshow of Mi Tierra is also now online.
