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.

We were placed in a cold dark corner which was freezing because the fan was on full blast to cool down the whole place because the other half of the room's air con wasn't working but was reserved for a large party that didn't bother to turn up. The food was so so but they tried...
Great Mexican food and love the margaritas. The mezcal one is fresh and they only recommend having two as they are potent. Everything we tried was full of flavor and different than the usual greasy Mexican stuff at other places. These guys are doing something special here and you can definitely taste it! Pretty easy to get a table as well.
