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…

More Pittsburgh Brewery Tacos at Draai Laag Brewing

Wild Beers by Design, What About Tacos? Over the past few months, Nate and I have made frequent visits to Draai Laag Brewing located at 501 East Ohio Street in Millvale, PA.  This brewery has a pub-style taproom that offers a rotating selection of sour or farmhouse ale beers. These beers may start as regular Belgian beers, but in French and Belgian styles they’re introduced to native and/or unique floras (aka yeasts) that greatly change the beers. In ‘normal’ brewing…

Hitchhiking for Tacos in Pittsburgh

Hitchhiking for Tacos in Pittsburgh

I have now been to Hitchhiker Brewing Company more than most of my friends that live in the South Hills, and I do not even live close to there. I love this place! I discovered my favorite beer of all time here, Yeoman, a fresh hopped IPA brewed right here by Hitchhiker.  The fresh hops put into this American Pale Ale came from a hop farm near Slippery Rock and it really knocked my socks off! Hitchhiker Brewing is where I also…

Tacos cooked by me, delivered by Blue Apron

Delivered Tacos (some assembly required) This week I am covering tacos from a different angle, Blue Apron.  I do like to cook, but once in awhile I will treat myself to a Blue Apron meal.  For those of you who don’t know, Blue Apron is one of the meal delivery services.  For about $50/week (you can skip deliveries whenever) you get 3 meals which contain 2 servings. So for myself it usually means dinner and lunch the next day!  The…

Tacos from the Top of Pittsburgh…at Bigham Tavern

A few Fridays ago, I had my mind set on Thai Spoon in Dormont because I heard it is amazing and love trying out new restaurants.
