SusieCakes’ Founder, Susan Sarich, grew up in Chicago where she was called Susie by her two beloved grandmothers, Mildred and Madeline. Every day Susie would come home from school to enjoy her grandmothers’ company over a glass of milk and a fresh baked treat. This daily baking ritual and special time together in the kitchen left a lasting impression.
When Susie grew up to become Susan and moved to the West Coast, she brought along her grandmothers’ carefully recorded recipes on handwritten 4×6 cards.

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.

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
