Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of Mexican deli fare and drinks at New Casa Lupita, in White Bear Lake.
New Casa Lupita's menu boasts a bounty of authentic south-of-the-border dishes prepared using recipes from the owners' hometown of Guadalajara. Inside the deli-style restaurant, slurp up homemade tortilla soup ($3.50) or plunge into 12 ounces of guacamole dip ($5.49). Patio diners let the breeze sweep through their tresses as they gobble down mammoth tortillas bursting at the flour seams with tender carne asada steak, rice, beans, salsa, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and onions ($6.19).
Taco salads free burritos' fixings from their tortilla confines and allow the goodies to gambol, like a miniature pony playing poker, on a pile of chips ($6.19). Tingle tongues with chili relleno, peppers stuffed with gooey cheese, lightly battered with flour and egg, deep-fried, and drizzled with homemade tomato sauce ($7.29). A heap of rice and beans flank this zesty morsel to cool peppery palates.
