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…

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),…

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…

Expanding my fancy taco horizons at Carmella’s Plates and Pints

Expanding my fancy taco horizons at Carmella’s Plates and Pints

Last Tuesday after another 12.5 hour OR shift, I once again changed out of my scrubs quickly and made my way to my old stomping grounds in Southside.   Tuesday night can typically be a very good night for tacos thanks to alliteration (taco Tuesday!), so I was excited to hit up a place that I’ve been meaning to check out for awhile.  I had Carmella’s Plates and Pints in mind located at 1908 East Carson Street. I met my friend…

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…

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,…

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…

Snow Melt Pittsburgh Tacos at El Paso Mexican Grill

Snow Melt Pittsburgh Tacos at El Paso Mexican Grill

After recuperating last week from the Lake Tahoe trip (unfortunately I did not get tacos there as I spent a lot of time eating with the wedding party at the cabin), I waited until this past weekend to get tacos.  However, as us Pittsburghers know, we were hammered with snow Friday into Saturday morning.  Sure I had some fun sledding down roads on unfurled Kan Jam cans, participating in epic snow ball fights, and shoveling the entire stretch of Nate’s…

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…

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. …
