|This used to be a pizza shop. It is now a taco haven. Thank JAH!|
|There is a growing trend of enthusiastic couples opening taco shops in Pittsburgh. I love this trend.|
I've had three lunches there so far, and plan on returning soon and often. All that we've tasted has been great. Some specials have come up from time to time: Tilapia Ceviche Tostada with Avocado ($3), chili-chocolate truffles (complimentary, while they experimented with the recipe), and homemade soyrizo as a filling for vegetarian tacos, burritos or tortas.
I love that the phone numbers for the shop are still from San Diego: (619)227-2377 and (619)227-5357.
They do take credit cards, and their hours are on the menu below (closed Tuesdays). There is free, unmetered parking in front of the shop. Just nearby is the new Crested Duck Charcuterie shop.
Casa Rasta is also on Twitter. Follow them here.
