  • Amaya's and Dignowity are trying to make their mark on the East Side.

Amaya's Cocina (1502 E. Commerce St., 210 265-5449) and area neighbor Dignowity Meats (1701 E. Houston St., 210-462-1496) are featured in a mini documentary, "The Great American Cooking Story," by journalist and filmmaker Clara Ritger. 

In it, David Arciniega of Amaya's and Shane Reed of Dignowity Meats (which has finally launched a dinner menu!) talk about opening up a business in the East Side and the struggles and hardships that go along with it — along with the small, but worth-it triumphs.
