Philly Tacos Part 4 – The Gang goes to Dollar Taco Night

Philly Tacos Part 4 – The Gang goes to Dollar Taco Night

For Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations, I made plans well in advance to travel to Philadelphia with my friend Carolyn (and her pupper Bella) to see our friends Julia and Taylor who both live in the Philly area.  As a refresher, Carolyn, Taylor, and I travel A LOT together and you will find their names mentioned in the Austin and California taco posts.  Carolyn is the queso connoisseur in the group, while Taylor enjoys critiquing and comparing side dishes of Mexican…

Fat Taco Tuesday? Part 2 of NOLA Taco Travels

Fat Taco Tuesday? Part 2 of NOLA Taco Travels

Second Stop- The Rum House Caribbean Taqueria Later on Friday, Alexis and I decided it was time to attempt to conquer the New Orleans public transportation system.  Alexis may disagree with me but I thought we did pretty good navigating our way from the French Quarter to the Lower Garden District, especially with the construction, street car closures, and Friday rush hour traffic.  After one street car ride, one bus transfer, and one last street car ride, and a tasteful…

Pittsburgh Tacos on a Lazy Sunday at Cocina Mendoza

Pittsburgh Tacos on a Lazy Sunday at Cocina Mendoza

This past weekend I participated in a lazy Sunday (which is rare for me to do) and stayed in bed all day watching episode after episode of Flash and Arrow.  For my lunch, I planned on getting takeout tacos at Mendoza Express, a tiny roadside building that I came across along Mansfield road in East Carnegie when I was heading home one day after errands. However, I found out they are closed on Sundays so I thought I would try…

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…

Helping out Pittsburgh Tacos in The Incline’s Ultimate Food Truck Bracket!

Pittsburgh online news site The Incline really got my attention lately with their Ultimate Pittsburgh Food Truck Bracket, pitting food trucks from around the area in a NCAA style, reader voted competition.  Obviously, the bracket dedicated entirely to tacos is what REALLY got my attention. The Final Four in the bracket came down to Southside BBQ, Las Chicas, Hott Dawgz and Sugar and Spice Ice Cream Truck. To make the final four voting more interesting, The Incline also held a small…

Some Pittsburgh Tacos at a non-traditional place, Smiling Moose

Some Pittsburgh Tacos at a non-traditional place, Smiling Moose

Music, drinks and most importantly, tacos! A few months ago, my coworker told me that her son, Zach, a friend of mine who graduated from the same high school, was in a band called Saybrook.  The pop punk band originated in Greensburg, Pa, near my hometown of Irwin.  My coworker told me about his concerts for the past month or so but I could never fit them into my schedule since most of the concerts were in Uniontown.  She told me about Saybrook…

More Biking and More Tacos – at Bea Taco Town

More Biking and More Tacos – at Bea Taco Town

The day after I biked on the Montour Trail and walked to Las Palmas, I had the opportunity to bike yet again, this time into the city so I was able to go to to Bea Taco Town to meet some friends for lunch. Luckily I arrived at the correct Bea Taco Town my friends were at because there are two Bea Taco Towns on the same street (633 and 110 Smithfield St)!  Both Bea Taco Towns downtown are closed…
