London - Lupita Mexican
Lupita is all about location, location, location - a small cramped Mexican restaurant located off the Strand, right next to Charing Cross station.
What I tried this evening:
- Guancamolito - surprisingly bland guacamole dip - could use a bit more lime & onions;
- Carnitas taco - loved the meat filling, but seasoning seemed to lack that extra zing;
- Gringa Special, which was rotiserie pork shreds served atop a trio of tortillas but, again, seemed to lack flavors The garnishes - e.g. tomatoes, onions, cilantro, lime lacked freshness or quality.
- Pollo quesadilla - came across as plain-tasting.
One major gripe: my Margarita on the rocks was so full of ice, it took too small sips to empty my glass!
Can really use some recommendations from UK-based Chowhounds on where to find good Mexican, please!
