La Lupe Cantina Opens on Jefferson Street Near Broadway in Bushwick


La Lupe opened about a month ago at 9 Jefferson Street, a worker there told us when we stopped by yesterday. The restaurant has a full bar and serves snacks and street food, including chips, grilled corn, pozole, salad, queso fundido with chorizo, flautas, tacos, burritos and some interesting sounding sandwiches.

These include a hot dog (Perros Gordos, literally “overweight dogs”) consisting of sausage with bacon, coleslaw and chipotle mayo and the Mexican Burguer, which is made of pork and beef with pico de gallo, guacamole, cheese, bacon, coleslaw and chipotle mayo. Most of the items have veggie options, and tacos include fish.

Beverages include aguas frescas, Mexican Coke, and Mexican style hot chocolate. The space was formerly home to the Salad Wheel. GMAP
