From Trails to Tacos at California Taco Shop

From Trails to Tacos at California Taco Shop

My second visit to California Taco Shop has been long overdue. My first visit was Labor Day weekend of 2019 (read about my first visit here!) and for some reason, I forgot about this gem until I began trekking some segments of the Rachel Carson Trail.

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.

I’m Staying at the Franklin Innnn….all the tacos lovers are invited innnn.

After my Saint Patrick’s day adventure in Philly, I went back to getting tacos in the Burgh.  My initial taco partner in crime, Michelle, has been dying to take me to a place that she really likes in the North Hills.  Michelle has been tagged in almost every visit at Patron Mexican Grill (see my favorite dollar taco blog post here!)  and she shares a heavy love for tacos too.  I was very excited to meet her, Andy (her husband),…
