From the restaurateurs who brought our favorite restaurant in Dallas on Henderson, Gemma, comes their long awaited Mediterranean send up, Sachet.  Menu items include lamb, seafood, poultry, house-made pastas, legumes and grains, salads, and more than 20 vegetable-based meze, or starters, sourced from the best seasonal ingredients.

Chef-owner Stephen Rogers suggests that the menu little exotic but still approachable with plenty of vegetables, no butter or cream (olive oil instead), and much like he cooks at home for his own family.  Continue reading

Eat Me: Mia’s Tex Mex Brisket Tacos

miasby Steven Doyle

Mia Enriquez is one happy gal and she makes what most consider the best brisket tacos in Dallas at her namesake restaurant, Mia’s Tex Mex located on Lemmon Avenue in Dallas. What she also makes is one hell of a great brisket enchilada. When visiting Dallas most tourists make a beeline to Mia’s and join the locals as we sup on amazing Tex-Mex.

Other crave favorites include pinto bean soup, tamales, and beef chile rellenos. The rellenos are particularly delicious and top as some of our very favorite in the Dallas area.  Continue reading

Wild Salsa now has three locations in the DFW area including the original downtown Dallas, Fairview, and the latest located at 300 Throckmorton in Fort Worth. This is good news for those looking for seriously good Mexican cuisine including their crazy good tacos, a tamale that will bring tears to any grown aficionado and over 100 tequilas to raise your spirits.

Our most recent visit was to the downtown Dallas location which is located at 1800 Main Street across from their sister restaurant Dallas Chop House. There we found Chef Katie who we soon discovered is not only a fantastic savory chef, but has extreme skills in the pastry department which is unusual as most chefs choose a path and excel at it. In Katie’s case she just excels.

Wild Salsa has these fresh flavors and authentic takes on Mexican not found at your local Tex Mex haunt, these dishes are serious. Look at the al pastor tacos, or perhaps the redfish sizzled ala plancha.  Continue reading
