Celebrating Pittsburgh’s Restaurant Week with tacos from Coughlin’s Law Kitchen and Ale House

Celebrating Pittsburgh’s Restaurant Week with tacos from Coughlin’s Law Kitchen and Ale House

After back to back weekends of Ultimate Frisbee Tournaments, I finally had a weekend free for Pittsburgh tacos.  Lucky for me, the weekend I had open happened to be a part of Pittsburgh’s Restaurant Week.  In the past, I would try to make an effort to make it to a few of the restaurants partaking in the event to expand my Pittsburgh foodie bubble.  However, the hardest part for me is remembering which week the event falls.  This time, my aunt…

The Pittsburgh Taco Festival Strikes Back!

The Pittsburgh Taco Festival Strikes Back!

I was able to spend the start of my 10 day vacation in Pittsburgh without work on my mind. I knew I would soon be on a backpacking trip to the Grand Canyon, but first I needed a Tacofest.  Instead of worrying about compounding medications,  monitoring IV drips, or stocking the satellite pharmacy, I started thinking about how many tacos I was going to have at the second annual Pittsburgh Taco Festival.  To kick off my vacation, I invited one…

Question: Where can you find tacos, a beach, and Ultimate Frisbee all in one place?

Question: Where can you find tacos, a beach, and Ultimate Frisbee all in one place?

Answer:  Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. This Spring, I took a leap of faith and joined a Pittsburgh’s club level Ultimate Frisbee team called I-79.  I was recruited by my casual Ultimate Frisbee friends to play on this club team.  At first I did not know how I would fit another night of frisbee into my very hectic work-life schedule, but I decided that improving my game and traveling to new places for frisbee tournaments with friends along my side would be…

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,…

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. …

Heavenly Pittsburgh Tacos at Taco Diablo in Mt Lebanon

Heavenly Pittsburgh Tacos at Taco Diablo in Mt Lebanon

Last week in the midst of a very busy time getting ready for two back-to-back out of state weekend trips to New York and Ohio, I needed some quick and healthy dinners to get me through the chaos.  When I think of fast service tacos my mind defaults to Las Palmas, Edgar’s Best Tacos, Doce Taqueria, Bea Taco Town, and El Burro. However, time and location are important factors to consider too (especially around rush hour). Since I was planning…

California Tacos Round 1 and 2

California Here I Come (and went) So far this year, I have been lucky enough to take two trips to Southern California to see one of my best friends from college, Hannah.  I met her along with Julia (From the Philly taco blogs), my freshman year of college.  For the past 8 years I’ve known Hannah, she always said she could see herself living out West and she made it happen in October of 2015.  I am very proud of…

Mid Bike Ride Tacos at Doce Taqueria in Pittsburgh’s Southside

Mid Bike Ride Tacos at Doce Taqueria in Pittsburgh’s Southside

As I’m new, I figure I will start my taco blog with my absolute favorite taco place in Pittsburgh… Located at 1220 E. Carson Street in the Southside, I LOVE stopping at Doce Taqueria during my bike rides from Mckeesport to North Shore because its quick and it’s easy to get to from the trail. Doce Taqueria is a smaller storefront in the Southside, with limited  bar seating, so be ready to stand if they’re busy.  The interior is very…
