We had supper at Lupita one night recently. This is not your typical 'cover everything with sauce and add beans" type place. The menu was different and required some translating for us. And I mean "what is this? " . Spanish was not the problem as much as just my ignorance of true Mexican food.
The servings were generous, the service was friendly and helpful. The place is very clean and tidy. The ingredients were fresh and beautifully prepared. My question would be, why was it bland? WE were given a plate of sauces that were three degrees of hotness. Were we suppose to use that for seasoning on our meals. I don't think there was even salt or pepper on our food. I was truly surprised and sad. It was such a neat place, but I don't understand the blandness. Even the beautiful guacamole was bland. No garlic, not enough onion, no salt or pepper. So was it a new cook? or is this truly "street food?"
