When we first moved to Seguin and explored and visited neighboring New Braunfels, I had no clue as to how to pronounce HUISACHE. Then when I heard about the restaurant, I had no idea how to spell the word I was hearing [WEE-sach].
I've since learned - among other things - what a great restaurant this is. Great food. Great service. Great ambiance. (I love that word: am-bi-ance.)
The French call the Huisache tree "Cassie" and grow it extensively for the perfume industry. The blooms of the tree are numerous, bright yellow, in heads, and very fragrant. The dried blossoms are often packed in lovely pillows (available for purchase), promising a good night's fragrant sleep. They are called 'dream pillows.'
