After the Minami Grand Opening Party, I was still a bit hungry since I couldn’t eat much. The place was packed, and had mostly seafood, but still had a good time. A friend and I decided to go eat a bit more, so we decided on Caché Bistro & Lounge. They took over the old Charm Modern Thai space, and serve French and Asian inspired food.
We just got a couple dishes to share since we weren’t that hungry, but could still eat and catch up. We ordered the Caché Foie Gras Crème Brûlée with Flying Fish Caviar, Braised Local Baby Back Ribs with Asian Barbecue Glaze, and a side of Fries.
The Foie Gras Creme Brulee was actually a frisee salad. The creme brulee was served in an egg shell and topped with flying fish caviar. The brulee actually served as a dressing for the salad. The brulee was a bit sour, and was kind of like a vinaigrette. Did I taste the foie gras? Nope. Really disappointing, and not something I’d order again. It just tasted like a regular frisee salad with a vinaigrette.
The Ribs were better, and came out really nice and tender, and fell off the bone, but not too fatty. The glaze was sweet and smokey. It came with corn and also some little corn bread balls. I thought the corn bread was a bit dry, and could’ve used honey or butter (better yet both!), but my friend seemed to like it.
The service was good, but the food that we ordered wasn’t that great.
