Square Meal Review of Lupita ?

There’s plenty for Latin lovers to appreciate at little Lupita. An offshoot of Mexico City’s famed taquería El Farolito, it offers a genuine taste of vibrant Mexican cuisine and warm South American hospitality. Clued-up staff explain unfamiliar regional dishes such as grilled nopales (cactus) and recommend house specialities including gringa (tortillas topped with subtly spiced rotisserie pork and cheese), while signature tacos feature gobernador – fresh prawns with fiery chipotle mayo and pico de gallo.Zesty ceviches, beefy burritos stuffed with tender arrachera steak, and quesadillas filled with roasted poblano chillis and squash blossom are also on offer, alongside 100 per cent agave Tequilas and mescal. Located right by Charing Cross station, Lupita is invariably packed with a mix of tourists and locals – but if you can’t get a table, takeaways and deliveries are available.

    Rate My Bistro :: Lupita – Charing Cross

    We went to Lupita after my friends and I had met for drinks, then realised that it was later than we thought, and some food was in order! Lupita had tapas style Mexican dishes. At first, from the outside, this restaurant looked quite small and crowded. But when we entered, we saw that the dining area extended to the back with the open kitchen area in the centre. The decor was quite cool with its dark wooden brick walls, metal tables and chairs. Our waiter was really friendly and helpful! We basically let him choose the dishes for our meal and he didn’t disappoint us!...
