A warm Peruvian-born family tees up a big menu of Mexican and American fare three meals a day. Breakfast burritos are made with house-made chorizo sausage and red potatoes and smothered in green chile. Lunch and dinner call for a chile relleno burrito, carne asada or a steak torta. For special occasions, mojarra al moju de ajo is a fried whole tilapia with garlic sauce and caldo siete mares is a soup brimming with fish and seafood. Lupita’s Christmas-all-year decorations give the place a certain kitsch appeal. **
