Heavenly Pittsburgh Tacos at Taco Diablo in Mt Lebanon

Heavenly Pittsburgh Tacos at Taco Diablo in Mt Lebanon

Last week in the midst of a very busy time getting ready for two back-to-back out of state weekend trips to New York and Ohio, I needed some quick and healthy dinners to get me through the chaos.  When I think of fast service tacos my mind defaults to Las Palmas, Edgar’s Best Tacos, Doce Taqueria, Bea Taco Town, and El Burro. However, time and location are important factors to consider too (especially around rush hour). Since I was planning…

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…

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…

Pittsburgh Tacos on New Years!

Pittsburgh Tacos on New Years!

Last tacos of 2016 at Round Corner Cantina New Years Eve of 2016 turned out to be one of my favorites of all time. I woke up Saturday morning without any plans made for the day. The only thing I knew was that I would be having leftovers for lunch and tacos somewhere for dinner. After watching a few episodes of Parks and Recreation, I pulled out a list of breweries around the Pittsburgh area that I wanted to try. As soon as I…

California Tacos Round Cinco

California Tacos Round Cinco

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…

Colorful leaves, fun bike ride and Las Palmas TACOS!

Colorful leaves, fun bike ride and Las Palmas TACOS!

Last Wednesday, I had the day off from work.  With the temperature in the mid 70s, I thought it would be a good idea to take the bicycle out on the trail to see the colorful fall leaves.  Since I would be biking in the city Thursday I decided the Montour Trail would be the trail to explore that day, and the trip was of course planned around finishing the day at Las Palmas in Brookline. (note: that link takes…

Tacos Next Door at El Campesino

Tacos Next Door at El Campesino

Last Tuesday, I ventured only minutes from my apartment to El Campesino located at 4097 William Penn Highway  in Monroeville.  El Campesino has four other locations also in Altoona, North Hills (been there), Peters Township and Robinson (been there as well).  There used to be a Los Campesinos in Irwin many years ago, but I am not sure if the restaurants were under the same ownership or not, but the food is very similar at El Campesino.  When I was in…
