Lupita began almost 50 years ago as a traditional taquería (Spanish word meaning taco shop) just west of the historic centre of Mexico City before arriving in the UK in 2010 with the launch of the first Lupita restaurant on Villiers Street.
Lupita East serves tacos, tostadas, quesadillas and enchiladas and Mexico's infamous Churros con Chocolate - the Spanish pastry brought to Mexico in the 1930s.

This isn't a WOW place but certainly pleasing to the tastebuds.
We ordered the tacos and after being a little disappointed with the portion size we tucked in and the flavour certainly packed a punch.
The guacamole and churros doesn't go without praise too. But nothing gave me that urge to shout from the rooftops...which in London sadly means you probably won't find me there again.more
Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.
They answered every question i asked regarding the menu and treated us like a guest.
The food was great. Small portion but very feeling.

I had enchiladas which could have benefitted...more
Something about this place told me it would be disappointing. I knowwww I moved to London from the Mission in SF but I really hate that brand of "oh I lived in place x where they make the best y in the world so I'm ruined forever" snobbery so please allow me to be as objective as possible.

Lupita East is typical London fare, and unfortunately, that means two stars knocked off right away.
One is for the food, which is always just... OK. It's not bad, but it's not amazing. There's none of that kick or flavour or downhome side-of-the-road feeling you get from real Mexican food. Stuff that makes your clothes smell like cooked meat all day long and makes you want another burrito...more
