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.

    Really great food!

  • (((** 9 January 2017 by Shane Perkins from London

    disappointing, had read reviews saying it was on a par with meztizos, it isn't even close , refriend beans terrible , some of the salsas out of bottles in the tiniest pots , poor guacamole and overall just didn't seem that fresh .
    Service wasn't bad and they had both modello beers and some good tequilas.
    but it's more like wahaca than meztizos

    Decent was good. being a sunday evening, not much crowded and hence had all the attention of the staff and service was good. Their speciality was really tasty....the cheese roll....Good for informal meeting of friends

    This time was a dissapointment...we couldn't have guacamole because the avocados were too hard...and the meat in the tacos was really dry and not tasty
