I thought I’d written this post. Seriously. For some reason, I convinced myself that I had written an introduction to TacosandPho.com on HeidiTown. Alas, I had not.
So, while I started this new venture some time ago, here is a proper introduction.
During the pandemic, I started a new blog. It was sort of out of boredom. I wasn’t traveling as much and let’s face it, I wanted an excuse to eat more tacos and slurp more pho.
TacosandPho.com is a place that I hope will become popular with adventurous eaters in Northern Colorado who want to explore new-t0-them restaurants. The reason it is regional is that I live in Northern Colorado and will write (mostly) about restaurants in this particular area. However, occasionally, I will write about eateries I find on the road. For instance, I recently wrote about La Mina Tacos in Leadville on the new site.

These aren’t what I would call hardcore “reviews” because quite frankly, 1) I am not qualified and 2) for the most part, I am not returning and returning. I believe, to do serious food reviews I would need to return to the same place more than once.
Plus, I am definitely not qualified to tell you X is a good pho and Y is a terrible pho. I just don’t know pho well enough. I know what I like and what I don’t like and that’s how these articles will unfold.
Also, I will write about more than just tacos and pho at TacosandPho.com, and that’s because it’s my blog and I will do what I want to. I usually do. For instance, I have written about my experience making pork butt carnitas in the Instant Pot and my favorite chef-y books and podcasts on Audible.
So please visit! Subscribe if you are so inclined and join Tacos&Pho on social media (links below). Yes, I use an ampersand in social media and an AND for the website name.
This isn’t a money-making venture, and I pay for the meals (they are not comps). Most restaurants aren’t even aware they are on the blog. It’s just a place for us to come together and talk about food, cooking and eating. And who doesn’t like food? I like it a lot.
Lastly, both HeidiTown.com and TacosandPho.com are getting blog makeovers in May, and their own server. So, they will be super fast and so good-looking. See ya here and there!
