A low-key Mexican market that grew to include a restaurant, Taqueria la Monarca (8531 Olive Boulevard), appears to have closed its doors.
When a reader tipped us off that staffers were moving out supplies and kitchen equipment yesterday afternoon, we drove over, but everyone on site had already left. The shop was locked, with the only sign that anything was wrong was the neat stack of equipment near the dumpster. Peering in the windows, the front counter looked stripped and partially dismantled.No one answered the door or the phone.
