Lupe’s Antojitos is the Bernalillo cousin of Lupe's Antojitos Y Comida Mexicana in southeast Albuquerque. This one is installed in the corner of a gas station convenience store on Camino del Pueblo: You walk through the convenience store to get to the restaurant. Once inside, the Central Mexican menu includes three types of molcajetes, a specialty of Mexico City that presents an entire meal served in a stone mortar. Lamb barbacoa is cooked for hours until it barely clings to the bone, its drippings cooked into a brothy consommé. There are several caldos that could bring the dead back to life, including a chicken soup rivaling mom’s. And for you marineros, there’s even excellent ceviche and fried, whole tilapia.
