Lupita Tortilleria y Carniceria--5210 N. Tryon St
Stomach distended, pork fat dripping from the corner of my mouth, the smell of homemade tortillas wafting through the air, my mind is at peace. I have had this food before. I have felt this warm embrace in the homes of friends cooking a true Mexican meal. If you are in search of truth as I am, go find it at Lupita's! I bought some carnitas, homemade tortillas, morcilla, a type of terrine made from pork...you slice it off chop it up and put in anything to create magic (it was amazing inomeletmlet). Did I mention they give samples? The owner handed us some chicharrón, a guilty pleasure to be sure. These are the foundations of tradition which I feel will be lost if I dont support them and Lupita's is worth supporting.
