Jemima fell in love with hospitality when she was just 14 years old and has been working in the industry for 15 years. She always knew hospitality was her passion and dreamed of opening a café in Hervey Bay but quickly realised that it was a market that had already been cracked. She spent the last few years saving away on minimum wage to make her dream into a reality.

It was while she was in London refurbishing and managing a café turned Mexican restaurant tequila bar that she fell in love with the food, people and culture. She decided to save up and travel to Mexico.  Staying in Mexico for two months and loving every second of it. Eating, drinking and researching as much as she could, soaking up all of the Mexican culture.

When she returned to Hervey Bay she realised that a traditional Mexican cantina is just what the region was missing. While there are already a few Mexican restaurants Jemima says they are the same cuisine but slightly different. Jemima wanted to create a restaurant that provided locals with affordable but good quality Mexican meals with great local produce. Tres Salsas opened its doors on the 13th of December and has been doing well ever since, serving happy locals and visitors to the region.

Tres Salsas delivers simple, delicious and healthy Mexican meals for the whole family in a great atmosphere right on the esplanade. The salsas all made from scratch in house and the meats are all marinated on site. Jemima created the menu from her time in Mexico and collaborated with a Mexican friend to ensure it had that traditional twist. Portions of food are generous and simply delicious!

Tres Salsas offers different levels of heat for all customer preferences – they understand that everyone has different levels of spice tolerance. They range from full of flavour but totally safe, to let’s go a little touch of heat, ending with a blow your mind and taste buds sensational heat. What a wonderful solution to adding just the perfect touch to enjoying your meal just the way you like!

Tres salsas is open 7 nights for dinner and Thursday through to Sunday for lunch from 11am. They welcome you to pop in and immerse yourself in the passion.

Address: 13/416 The Esplanade, Torquay Hervey Bay
