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…

Taco Tuesday in Pittsburgh replaces Wing Night in Dormont A few weeks ago when the standard crew could not make it to Jamison’s wing night, I took the opportunity to visit another spot that has a taco Tuesday special. I first discovered James Street Gastropub & Speakeasy had tacos when I went there for drinks prior to attending the Incline’s Ultimate Food Truck Bracket Contest to support and try Las Chicas tacos (which I have been craving lately). Listed on…

Authentic Tacos in Pittsburgh at El Milagro, Surrounded by Spanish Speakers

If you’re looking for the one of the most authentic mexican joints in the ‘Burgh, than I have a place for you to try! Two Sundays ago Nate and I were invited to a Pittsburgh meetup for advanced Spanish speakers. (Now I am in no way advanced in my Spanish, but I do plan on touching up on my Spanish in the future. I had the opportunity to practice some Spanish in Argentina two years ago and I definitely want…

No Bull about Bull River Taco Co. Outside Pittsburgh in Greensburg

No Bull about Bull River Taco Co. Outside Pittsburgh in Greensburg

Last Wednesday, I followed the same pattern as the week before. Not enough sleep, work (last week it was work before sleep during night shifts), followed by racquetball and then tacos. I am a planner so I figured since I was playing racquetball in Greensburg, I would try some tacos in the area as well. One of my coworkers told me to try a relatively new place in Greensburg called Bull River Taco Co. located at 5256 Rt 30 in…

Taco Tuesday? More Like Taco Twosday in Pittsburgh!

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…

Back to Pittsburgh Tacos at Totopo!

Back to Pittsburgh Tacos at Totopo!

Totopo Tacos! Last week, I chose to try out Totopo on 660 Washington Road, Pittsburgh in Mount Lebanon’s uptown area after hearing fantastic reviews from friends.  I had never heard of Totopo before, and I had no idea what to expect.  I didn’t ask friends what was good or not at Totopo, I just went in cold (but of course leaning towards tacos!).  Now, after my first visit I have so much to share with you guys and I don’t…

Philly Tacos PT 3

Philly Tacos PT 3

On Sunday night, Julia pulled through again with another reservation at a Mexican restaurant in the downtown area of Philadelphia.  For someone who apparently didn’t like tacos, she was doing a great job finding awesome taco restaurants. We went to El Vez on 121 S 13st Street in the Center City area. El Vez is in Stephen Starr’s network of restaurants, so it comes with high praise.  Our reservation was not until 9pm, so we had plenty of time to…
