It’s probably safe to say you’d never turn down a taco, right? Especially if that taco was hand-crafted with Pittsburgh’s finest ingredients. Baby Loves Tacos, a Bloomfield’s culinary installment, is cooking up all the flavors you’re after and likely to become your favorite grab-and-go taco spot.
If you haven’t heard of the super-fresh Mexican joint already, you’re in for something special. Once a pop-up stand found at local events and farmers markets, their grub became so wildly popular that burrito connoisseur Zack Shell decided to give the people what they wanted — a Bloomfield-based taqueria.
Here, you’ll pair your favorite base with the protein topping of your choice. Mix and match for a new mouthwatering combo each visit. And if you like a little heat, creations like the Spicy Brisket Rice Bowl or Chorizo Taco will set your mouth on fire in the best way possible.
But it’s not just about the meat-eaters here. Veg-heads, take the BBQ Cauliflower for a spin. It’s really the type of taco you need to tell everyone about immediately… so we did. Whether your mood says burrito or you’re feelin’ a crisp salad instead, Baby Loves Tacos hits the spot.
This place has it all: friendly vibe, good conscious, great food. Think fresh, organic, and local all wrapped up in a warm tortilla. The taqueria’s small size means you’ll rub elbows with your neighbor and strike up conversation with fellow PGH locals. Not sure what to order? Sneak a peek at the menu, often found sketched onto the back of an old Chinese takeout pamphlet. See, the line-up of authentic dishes changes so frequently, the Baby Loves Tacos team has taken to drawing the daily selection on chalkboards, scrap paper, and yes, Chinese takeout menus.
And before you leave, don’t forget to snap a photo and share some of Pittsburgh’s prettiest tacos on your Instagram feed. Nothing wrong with spreading the word about a kick-ass local business (and receiving a few dozen likes in the process).
Head to Liberty Ave. to see what the hype’s all about. They’re serving up lunch 11am to 2pm on weekdays and 12pm to 2pm on Saturdays. Or opt to drop in for dinner 5pm to 9pm — the earlier the better to beat the mad rush. Because baby ain’t the only one who loves tacos.
