London’s home of truly authentic Mexican food, Lupita - East in Spitalfields offers an array of tasty traditional cuisine & street food made using fresh, flavoursome ingredients. Starting life as a small but popular Mexico City taco shop in the 1960s, the restaurant is now considered one of London’s top 5 Mexican restaurants, according to Zagat.

The bright, funky décor is as vibrant as the Lupita menu, which offers everything from tacos, tostadas and enchiladas to salads, soups and totopos. The sharing platters are bursting with selections of their finest, with veggie and seafood options, while the tempting quesadillas are full of surprises, including Nopales cactus and Huitlacoche Mexican truffle.

Stuff your tacos with a wide range of fillings prepared the traditional Mexican way. Try Pastor, pork fillets and bacon marinated in Lupita’s special blend of herbs and fruits, or the protein-packed Gobernador with shrimps, cheese and chipotle sauce, then wash it all down with one of Lupita’s much-loved margaritas, made using the best Agave Tequila.

Lupita in London’s extensive drinks list also boasts some of Mexico’s hard-to-find beers, including Pacifico, Modelo Especial & Negra Modelo, as well as a variety of South American and Spanish wines. Found on Commercial Street, Lupita restaurant is a 5-minute walk from Aldgate East Tube Station.

    Waited over an hour just to get chips and guacamole. On a Wednesday night. Almost two hours just to get tacos -- not a complicated order. Food was fine, only two servers for a big room though. Won't be going back.

    Dining experience was fine except the restaurant didn't have my booking. Thankfully they got us a table but could have been annoying if not. I did receive the Timeout confirmation email so clearly something went wrong here and the information didn't get passed over to Lupita.

    I thought the food was good but one of the tacos we had, with bacon, chorizo and chicharrones was incredibly dry. There were options to add cheese and sauce but they were extras so we didn't opt for them. The waitress seemed to think it was a good idea to add them, but if they're the only things that make the taco good, they should be on there already!
    Great margaritas, fish taco was good too. Although I know its not their fault and just what they were trained to do, the trained explanations of the waitresses were too much for me and they were reeled off so quickly through thick accents that I couldn't understand what was being said. It takes away from the experience to feel pressed into choosing things and constantly being suggested a 'better' option. Perhaps just make the portion sizes and 'free sides with the main' more clear on your actual menu, so you don't need to be told this. A lesson in ordering food is not the same as friendly banter with your waiter or waitress.
