Scrubs or No Scrubs…My New Favorite Post-Work Taco Spot is El Lugar.

Scrubs or No Scrubs…My New Favorite Post-Work Taco Spot is El Lugar.

Last Monday after a long 12.5 hour OR shift, I quickly changed out of my OR scrubs and snagged a ride with Devon, a fellow coworker, to Federal Galley.   We were excited to try a new post-work happy hour spot with some other friends from work.  Not only is Federal Galley a few blocks from work, but I also heard from social media sources that tacos would be on one of the menus here.  This could potentially be a dangerously…

One Step Closer to a Free Taco at Doce Taqueria

One Step Closer to a Free Taco at Doce Taqueria

I have not talked about my love for Doce Taqueria‘s tacos in a long time.  Doce Taqueria is one of the very first places I went to when I started sharing my love for tacos in the blog.  Since then, I have probably recommended Doce Taqueria the most to friends looking for the best tacos in the Burgh.   Doce is near the top of my list due to their mouth watering, nontraditional, new age carnitas and americano beef tacos, the prices,…

Jacki AND Baby Loves Tacos – Our Visit to Pittsburgh’s Newest Taco Spot

Jacki AND Baby Loves Tacos – Our Visit to Pittsburgh’s Newest Taco Spot

After many failed attempts, I finally made it to Baby Loves Tacos at 4508 Liberty Avenue in one of my favorite Pittsburgh neighborhoods, Bloomfield.  Baby Loves Tacos officially opened January 6th and one of my best friends, Alexis, beat me to the tacos.  Granted she lives less than 2 minutes away from this taco pumping establishment. I have heard so many positive reviews from Alexis and others online about Baby Loves Tacos.  I even browsed their Instagram and Facebook page…

Fat Taco Tuesday? Part 1 of NOLA Taco Travels

Fat Taco Tuesday? Part 1 of NOLA Taco Travels

Since I started my new job in April, I missed the vacation picks for the rest of 2017 calendar year but I still managed to take several extended weekend trips.  This year, I have been lucky enough to briefly talk about tacos from Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Norwalk, New York City, Austin, and now New Orleans. Just a few weeks ago, I went to New Orleans with one of my best friends since childhood, Alexis, to see my friend Will. …

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…
