Lupita East


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.

Pretty average Mexican food. The tacos aren't huge, and tasted alright, but nothing special. The horchata also wasn't great. There is a lunch deal, which makes it pretty good value, but I probably won't be back. If you're in the area and fancy Mexican, I would recommend Boho Mexica or even DF/Mexico instead.more

Authentic Mexican food in Shoreditch.

My partner, some friends and I were in the mood for really good Mexican food so checked out Lupita East which is a 15 minute walk from our place. It did not disappoint.

To drink I got the sweet and more-ish horchata, made from rice milk, almonds and cinnamon. My partner and I shared the classicos, basically really good nachos will super fresh guacamole,...more

So we went here as part of a coworker's leaving party.

I have been to another branch of Lupita before. But I don't remember much about that one. But this one, will stay in mind.

We had about 12 people including me, so we did get good attention from the waiters. It is a bit on the pricey side. But in London, I think this is the norm. So I am not complaining. The food is great. I think great...more

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

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
