Lupita Mexican Restaurant



Lupita Campechano Tacos


A couple of weeks ago I tried out a Mexican restaurant call Lupita, which is a Mexican street food style restaurant much like Wahaca. I love Mexican food, there is always a really great variety of flavours. 

I have to start off with the cocktails, I had a Strawberry Maragrita which was absolutely divine, incredibly tasty and it was the kind of cocktail where you could taste the alcohol but it wasn't overpowering at all. 

Moving onto the actual food, for starters we had nachos - naturally, I mean I love nachos whether I'm in a Mexican restaurant or not. This was served with guacamole which I'm not really a fan of, créme fraiche, salsa guajillo which was pretty hot actually, and crumbled Queso Fresco. Nachos are always a great little starter but we also got Queso Fundido, which is small chopped up pieces of chorizo in melted cheese served with 3 tortillas. I was expecting quite a lot for this starter because I love cheese and I love chorizo however I found that there was just too much cheese, I would have preferred less cheese and more chorizo but it was still pretty tasty.

For my main meal I had the Campechano tacos, which are two small tacos topped with pieces of steak, chorizo and pork chicharron which essentially is a lighter version of a pork scratching or fried pork rind. These were really yummy, fantastic flavours and I like that you only get two tacos because it's just enough to enjoy it but not feel massively bloated and full after it. I can't quite remember how much everything came to but it was fairly reasonable.

The service was fantastic there, everyone was incredibly friendly but the really interesting thing is that on each table there was an electronic device with 3 little buttons, which when pressed would get the attention of the waiter/waitress by sending an alert to a device on their wrist. Really impressive.  

I really enjoyed my visit to Lupita, have you ever been before?

  3. The one thing I love about a Mexican restaurant is their cocktails - they always seem so much better! That food looks absolutely delicious. That service button sounds like just what some restaurants need. How hard does it have to be to get a refill!
