From Pittsburgh to a Taco Heaven – Austin, TX Part 2

From Pittsburgh to a Taco Heaven – Austin, TX Part 2

Third Stop-Torchy’s Tacos Torchy’s was not only on my researched Austin taco list, but it was recommended to us by many friends and coworkers prior to our visit.  I did some research on Torchy’s and discovered that the owner of Torchy’s opened his first food trailer in 2006 after leaving his fancy executive chef job and risking all his life savings on his dream.  In the beginning, he handed out free chips and homemade salsa to spread the word about…

From Pittsburgh to a Taco Heaven – Austin, TX Part 1

From Pittsburgh to a Taco Heaven – Austin, TX Part 1

As I sit here in my kitchen with two long sleeve shirts on, long pants, and fuzzy socks, I think back two weeks ago to my glorious trip to Austin where I was waking up to 70 degree weather each day.  I did not have to pack or even think about pants or fuzzy socks down there. I just had to plan where I wanted to get tacos for lunch and what I wanted to explore while in Austin with…

Biking, Incline, Tacos, Hills, Tacos – My Taco Tuesday in Pittsburgh

Biking, Incline, Tacos, Hills, Tacos – My Taco Tuesday in Pittsburgh

Inclined To Get Tacos During Pittsburgh’s Heat Wave Last Tuesday towards the end of Pittsburgh’s heat wave, I ventured out on my bicycle during the 89 degree day. Since my car was unavailable that morning, I figured it would be prime time (minus the heat) to finally take my bike on the incline. Since I am still new to the roads on Mount Washington, I figure the safest way to get to the Cultural District would be to take the…

Going Over the Bar in Pittsburgh for Taco Tuesday

Going Over the Bar in Pittsburgh for Taco Tuesday

Taco Troubles Two Tuesdays ago took an unexpected turn after I was done training at West Penn Hospital in Bloomfield. After finishing the in class and online new hire courses, I was planning to get a late taco lunch in Lawrenceville, the neighborhood next door. Since I was in the area during the day I figured it would be a great time to try out Smoke.  I have heard wonderful things about their meats, and I didn’t want to attempt…

New Tacos from Columbus to Pittsburgh at Condado Taqueria

New Tacos from Columbus to Pittsburgh at Condado Taqueria

Although I missed the free tacos at the grand opening of Condado Taqueria in the Cultural District of Pittsburgh on March 14th this year, I knew I had to visit soon.  There has been a lot of build up for this new restaurant, along with quite the following in Columbus, OH, where they have two other locations. I had a few friends of mine who already rave about this place, specifically for the reasonable prices and unbelievable queso so I…

Tres Rios Tacos along the Tres Rios of Pittsburgh

Tres Rios Tacos along the Tres Rios of Pittsburgh

During my week of transitioning jobs, I had some free time to catch up with some friends in Pittsburgh. Before the $1 taco night at Patron Mexican Grill on Monday, I went to Tres Rios for lunch.  I went with my friend Will, who I used to work with at Kennywood. We loved working in the rides department and have many memories together working the Thunderbolt and Raging Rapids. Anyway, Tres Rios (named for Pittsburgh’s three rivers) is located on…

Taco Tuesday? More Like Taco Twosday in Pittsburgh!

Last Tuesday, I had the day off from work after seeing the epic Penguins game against the Capitals that included 8 TOTAL goals (6 of them Pens!) and Malkin pulling off a hat trick ALL in one period. Since Nate and I did not have time to get tacos before the Pens game, or during (side note: across from our seats we saw the täkō sign! Tacos! At the game!  However, if you follow us on Twitter and Facebook you’ll…

Biking and Tacos from Fiesta Grill Up there with my love for tacos, is my love for cycling.  On my last full day at Huntington Beach, I thought it would be a good day to rent a bike and go on and adventure on the Huntington Beach Bike Trail for a half day and maybe find a taco stop along the way. Towards the end of my 17 mile bike ride on a cruiser, I was hungry and ready for some…

More Tacos Mid-Trip at Sancho’s! On Monday during the Cali trip, my girlfriends and I spent another day at the beach, followed by paddle boarding in a harbor near Long Beach.  I was so happy to finally try paddle boarding and I was even more happy when I successfully finished the hour ride without falling into the water.   After we went paddle boarding, we were ready for some tacos for dinner. Hannah recommended Sancho’s Tacos. It was right on the…

California Tacos Round 1 and 2

California Here I Come (and went) So far this year, I have been lucky enough to take two trips to Southern California to see one of my best friends from college, Hannah.  I met her along with Julia (From the Philly taco blogs), my freshman year of college.  For the past 8 years I’ve known Hannah, she always said she could see herself living out West and she made it happen in October of 2015.  I am very proud of…
