Tacos Lupita

Tacos Lupita was recommended to us last year. In fact we last went there on my birthday. It's not quite fine dining, but man do they do good food.

Gorditas, huaraches, mulitas, tortas, pupusa ... frankly it's all one delicious mix of tortilla, meat, cream, onion, tomato and rice.

Almost makes you want to live in Somerville ... almost.

The cooks all wear adorable hair nets, and the place was packed with everyone from hipsters to car wash guys.

Their specialty is Salvadorian cuisine, and they have some awesome looking Central American sodas.

We day-dreamed of our next trip to Mexico as we chowed down on the food.

So if you consider Anna's Taqueria to be "The Man", then head to Tacos Lupita.

Swung by Andala tonight. A Middle Eastern coffee stop filled with hookahs. Realize my hookah jokes are better delivered verbally than in print.

Our waitress was delightful. Anne went with cute. Either way I was reminded of Carleen Anderson.

I ordered a Jerusalem egg pita sandwich, and Anne went all hummus on me. She also chose an old smoothie. -Cymbal crash-

The sandwich wasn't all that good. Too acidic for my tastes, and I doubled up with a freshly squeezed Lemon juice that made me pull a face like I'd swallowed a fly.

Cannot help but feel that we chose the wrong items. Everything sounded good on paper. Check came to $26, and that's without hookahs.
