La Lupita Cozinha Tradicional Mexicana

Mexican in Baixa & Rossio

Mexican City transplant Ramon and his Romanian wife run a freestyle cafe called Casa do Campo during the week, but on Saturdays, Ramon whips out all his smuggled ingredients from the homeland for a real-deal Mexican brunch.

Expect molletes (open toasts with refried black beans, tomato and coriander), huevos rancheros with a tangy tomatillo salsa, chilaquiles (fried tortillas simmered in red salsa with queso fresco, onions and avocado slices) and a wonderful black mole, among other possibilities. There's also a beautiful salsa macha with various chillies, peanuts and sesame seeds if you want to turn up the heat!
