Baang Cafe & Bar Restaurant Review: Hip and lively Baang Café & Bar features an Asian-fusion menu with dishes best tackled family-style. Miso salmon tartare with seaweed salad and pickled ginger on sushi rice, and dim sum consisting of edamame and shrimp and chicken dumplings with a ponzu dipping sauce are among the best choices. For a taste of classical Chinese, try the barbecued spare ribs in sesame honey sauce. Among our favorite entrées are the grilled beef in hot oil with cilantro, shallots and soy, and the comparably mild sautéed Chilean sea bass with black rice, stir-fried vegetables and sweet chili miso sauce. Afterwards, sink your spoon into the soothing sweetness of a ginger ice cream sandwich with poached apricots and caramel drizzle. The wine list, with crisp Sauvignon Blancs from vineyards like Caymus and Cakebread Cellars and fruit-forward Pinot Noirs from La Crema and Au Bon Climat, are specifically chosen to successfully complement Asian flavors.
