[Narrator] If you come to Mexico, you have to try
00:27
the Anejo Patron Tequila.
00:29
It's the gift from Mexico to the world.
00:37
(gentle bossa nova music)
00:46
Hola.
00:47
Welcome to the Lupita.
00:48
I'm David.
00:49
David (mumbling), it's a pleasure to meet you.
00:50
Welcome.
00:51
[Host] Hi, how are you?
00:52
(speaking in foreign language)
00:53
[Pia] Nice to meet you, Pia.
00:54
So obviously you do tacos, but I've heard
00:57
not normal tacos, right?
00:59
You take the tacos of your travels.
01:01
[Pia] Well we have tacos, the classical ones.
01:03
[Host] Right.
01:04
The pastor.
01:05
But then we have totally different ones
01:07
and they're inspired in travels that I've done
01:10
and food that I've eaten since I was young.
01:12
It's just not to have a taco, it to have an experience.
01:15
Weren't you also on Top Chef Mexico.
01:16
Yes, I was there. (laughing)
01:18
I've heard.
01:19
Can you show me your magic?
01:20
[Pia] Of course.
01:21
Let's go into the kitchen.
01:22
[Host] All right, let's go.
01:22
[Pia] This is where the magic happens.
01:24
[Host] Small kitchen, huh?
01:25
When we started, we didn't know that we were gonna
01:27
sell so many tacos.
01:28
Yeah.
01:29
And now we've been growing and it's crazy.
01:31
That's a great problem to have.
01:33
[Pia] I can tell you in a month, we've served
01:34
up to 5,000 so.
01:35
5,000 tacos a month.
01:37
Yeah it's a lot.
01:38
You want to have in every bite a little bit of flavor.
01:41
This is potato chips.
01:44
So we have tzatziki.
01:45
I'm so hungry.
01:46
So hungry.
01:48
So I have one more taco.
01:50
So he's gonna take pastor, and now he's gonna put
01:52
some cheese, it's gonna start to melt.
01:54
And this is gonna turn into our taco shell.
01:57
And you're gonna die when you try it.
02:04
(laughing)
02:06
Have these are so good.
02:07
Thank you.
02:08
Now you have to try the rest.
02:09

02:11
[Pia] Perfect.
02:11
[Host] I'm so happy.
02:16

03:16
way of enjoying tequila.
03:17

03:18
(speaking in foreign language)
03:22
Not take a little sip of your sangrita.
