Harbor hopping in New England for Tacos.

Harbor hopping in New England for Tacos.

Around Christmas of 2020, I had a taco dinner night with my middle school friends, Deepali and Hillary. If you follow my taco instagram, there is a picture of our taco spread on Hillary’s dining room table. It was quite the setup, where it looked like the table was set for 15 people and not just 3. But hey, tacos can make great leftovers. During dinner, we brainstormed planning a trip together and set a date in the calendar for…

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…

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…

FALLing for tacos at Los Chiludos.

FALLing for tacos at Los Chiludos.

On a cool, crisp Taco Tuesday, I made my way to Los Chiludos in Canonsburg. Tacos are a necessity all year long, but the thought of a hot taco right off the grill warms my heart this time of year. So you best believe I put on jeans, a leather jacket, and a sweater and took the 25 min drive to 325 Southpointe Blvd. I met up with my friend, Dan, who had Los Chiludos on his taco radar for…

Bring on the Cotija cheese, Denver!

Bring on the Cotija cheese, Denver!

If you have read any of my West Coast travel taco posts, you probably came across my queso-loving, adventure-seeking, hiking-partner-for-life friend, Carolyn. We were reunited recently for an epic backcountry adventure. Before heading off to Wyoming to backpack the Teton Crest Trail, Carolyn and I spent the weekend in her current home city of Denver. We had three full days of hiking, boating, and, of course, tacos. After a 7 mile out-and-back hike to Lake Isabelle at a max elevation…

Tacos and Turntables at La Palapa.

Tacos and Turntables at La Palapa.

Monday has definitely become the new Taco Tuesday as I have come across more restaurants doing Taco Monday specials. My usual Monday taco spot is at Patron Mexican Grill with $1 chicken or beef hard shell tacos. But a few Mondays ago, I decided to switch it up and try out La Palapa’s Tacos and Turntables. Every Monday, La Palapa has All You Can Eat tacos for $10 while a DJ mixes some sick beats. The guest DJ rotates every…

Doce Taqueria, I love you.

Doce Taqueria, I love you.

Taco love was in the air this Valentine’s Day. After a day of work in the OR pharmacy, I changed out of my hospital scrubs and met up with Steve for tacos. Steve knew that the only meal I would accept on Valentine’s Day is tacos. Tacos have a special place in my heart. Now I have already blogged a few times about the tacos at Doce Taqueria, but I wanted to keep my readers updated with the newest tacos…

Best Lookin’ Tacos go to Strange Roots Experimental Ales

Best Lookin’ Tacos go to Strange Roots Experimental Ales

I recently took a trip to Millvale, one of my favorite Pittsburgh neighborhoods, for Taco Tuesday. With a new goal to downsize my apartment and save money on rent, Millvale and my current location of Mount Washington were the top picks on my list. Millvale is booming with breweries and restaurants, and a Baby Loves Tacos will be appearing there soon. And with the bike trail nearby, Millvale is my ultimate hobby oasis. During the TacoMania events, I tried some…

Scootin’ to tacos in Charlotte.

Scootin’ to tacos in Charlotte.

November was one of the best months of the year for me. I started the month off with a celebration of my Halloween birthday surrounded by many of my Pittsburgh friends, followed by a trip to California, Tahoe, Deep Creek, and Charlotte. The month of November was mainly focused on regaining strength and range of motion from many surgeries I had this past year, so while visiting my college friends, I maintained my strict exercise regimen. On my trek, I…
