Started in Kentucky, now we here…..in Westerville, Ohio…with tacos.

At the end of April, I set out on a 5-day, 339 mile bike packing trip. I opened up the bike packing Pandora’s box last October when my friend, Caitlyn, and I bicycled from Washington, D.C. to Pittsburgh. We had so much fun on our 5-day adventure. I really felt like I was living in the moment the entire time. Nothing else mattered and no worries were on my mind besides food, water, and shelter. Yes, I did think about…

Hot tacos this March in Florida.

Hot tacos this March in Florida.

I joined the Florida bandwagon and visited my friend Colin for a long weekend. Colin lives in Lakeland, Florida which is about 45 min inland from Tampa. Colin had an awesome map and itinerary which included bicycling, hiking, paddleboarding, beach time, and tacos. Colin knows me very well, clearly! All of my favorite things crammed into 3 full days. Gallito Taqueria Colin scooped me up from the Tampa Airport Thursday evening and he picked out a waterfront beer garden called…

Happy Hour Highs at Lowkey Taco.

Happy Hour Highs at Lowkey Taco.

My coworker, Keri, recently informed me about a restaurant that has been slaying tacos on Tuesdays at $2 a pop. Over the past summer, Keri did me a solid favor and supplied me with tacos from El Burro when I was doing my Rachel Carson Trail Challenge (see post here). When I need tacos, I know I can rely on her. Anyways, Keri told me to let her know a time when I would like to join her and Matt…

A quick U-Turn for tacos at La Catrina on Wheels.

A quick U-Turn for tacos at La Catrina on Wheels.

After a long shift at work, I made my way home in sight of making pizza for dinner. As I was driving down Western Avenue in the Northside, I saw a food truck stationed up outside of 412 Brewery. Once I saw that the food truck was La Catrina on Wheels, I immediately pulled a U-turn to park. My cravings changed quickly from pizza and wine to tacos and beer. La Catrina on Wheels is a taco truck that has…

When you dip, I dip, we taco dip at St. Clair Social.

When you dip, I dip, we taco dip at St. Clair Social.

If St. Clair Hospital in the South Hills and Social House 7 in Downtown had a baby, you would get the name of the next Pittsburgh taco place I traveled to… St. Clair Social. St. Clair took a leap of faith and opened up during the pandemic. Their drive is to get Pittsburgh social again. The corner bar and restaurant is located at 302 South Saint Clair Street in the Friendship neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Here, we get the name St….

Totopo has a sister and her name is Tocayo.

Totopo has a sister and her name is Tocayo.

Tocayo translates to “namesake” in English. The new restaurant in the Shadyside area of Pittsburgh, Tocayo, shares the same ownership as Totopo in Mount Lebanon -hence the name. But Tocayo has the opportunity to specialize its menu and really achieve a perfect mix between traditional Mexican cuisine and the urban high-end flare. I am happy to announce that one of the menu items they chose to focus on perfecting is none other than tacos. I chose to try out Tocayo…

At the end of the first post, I mentioned that I wanted to try the Chick Next Door, Beach Bum,…

Baltimore Tacos Take 2, Clinic Visits Take idk 100, and…Action!

I jinxed myself when I said (with a taco in my hand) that I was celebrating my last clinic visit at Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center. I ended up having to go to Baltimore again the following week. With a lot of monitoring and wound care, I am finally seeing progress from my last surgery on December 18th! I could have reviewed another Baltimore taco spot after my last clinic visit, but I decided to surprise my mother with her favorite…

Sorry Santa, I made it onto the Nauti list this year.

The year 2020 has been on Santa’s naughty list since the very beginning of the new year. I recently just joined the list, too. The NAUTI list that is! I am happy to say that I just checked off another Pittsburgh taco spot from my list of 8 new places to try. So, let’s see if these tacos turned out to be naughty or nice… With the pandemic going on, I should now be listing what is available for pick-up…
