Eating Sort of Good in the Neighborhood at Applebee’s

Eating Sort of Good in the Neighborhood at Applebee’s

Back in April of 2017,  I had my first major job change.  I switched from working in a small community hospital to working in one of the biggest hospitals in the city.  Moving back into the city was a goal of mine that I knew would take a few years to accomplish.  After gaining an incredible amount of clinical experience and saving up money living at home,  I was ready to get back into my city routine.  The hardest part…

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…

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…

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…

BBQ Pittsburgh Tacos at Smoke in Lawrenceville

BBQ Pittsburgh Tacos at Smoke in Lawrenceville

In case you did not know this, I am a big planner. I plan where I want to get tacos usually a few days in advance based on work schedule, activities I have set to do on my days off and type of transportation.  About a week in advance, I planned on getting tacos with Nate after work on a Saturday.  I knew I had a busy week ahead of me with work, ultimate frisbee, self defense practice, biking, cooking…

Pints, Pens, Pints on Penn, All You Can Eat Tacos in Pittsburgh!

Pints, Pens, Pints on Penn, All You Can Eat Tacos in Pittsburgh!

Last Tuesday night right before the Penguins versus Senators game during game 6 the Eastern Conference Finals, a group of us decided we should fuel up on tacos to get us ready for the big game. Now I usually go with the group to Jamison’s on West Liberty in Dormont for FREE wings with beer every Tuesday, but once in awhile we will switch it up for tacos. It is unfortunate this wing special falls on #TacoTuesdays, but I make up…

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…
