Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This Mexican dining room and bar on Commercial Street is the sister branch to the flagship Lupita over in Soho. Much like its sibling, this laid-back east London restaurant brings an authentic slice of the taquería to London, with a traditional Mexican vibe to match the food and drinks.

The menu ranges from tacos and tostadas to burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas and specials, such as a a selection of ceviche plates, arrachera steaks and panuchos de cochinita pibil - a dish of slow-roasted pork marinated and cooked to a technique dating back to Mayan times. It comes served on corn tortillas with refried beans and red pickled onions. Churros, a Mayan chocolate cake and flan de cajeta feature on the dessert list.

There's an impressive subterranean bar for those looking to settle in. Cocktails boast a Mexican bent - not least the many margaritas - but there are mojitos, caipirinhas and cuba libres, as well as the Lupita take on a bloody mary - the vodka is replaced with mezcal. A suitably extensive range of tequilas is available, too. 

Lupita East says
As one of the most popular restaurants providing authentic Mexican cuisine in London, Lupita pride themselves on the authenticity of their dishes. Using only fresh, flavoursome ingredients to create exciting dishes, the menus are a true reflection of the incredible flavours found throughout Mexico.
