Wander the narrow alleys of the Born, and as you pass by the ever-buzzing Picasso museum, you’ll see a small white sign peeking out from above a shopfront. ‘TACOS’—the promise of fresh grilled meats and ice-cold aguas frescas lures you in to seek refuge from the humid summer heat. Drawing from owner Patricia Elin Pedersen's love of the region, Lupita embodies the ethos of Mexico and Central America. Exposed brick, earthy tiles and hardwood flooring and furniture display the same classic yet exquisite simplicity showcased in the food—everything on the menu is handmade and gluten-free, from the various salsas (all family recipes), to the tortillas and chips, and the desserts. The restaurant features a full bar, but specialises in margaritas—light and refreshing with the perfect amount of tang—and micheladas, made with your choice of Mexican beer. Open for lunch, dinner and late-night snacking, Lupita adds the perfect amount of kick to your day at any time.
