Lupita Tortilleria y Carniceria--5210 N. Tryon St

Charlotte, NC28213

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 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.
