Dining Guide

Kau Ba

The night of our visit, shortly after the restaurant’s highly anticipated opening, chef-owner Nikki Tran greeted, seated, and visited with all of her diners. We began our “Viejun” (Vietnamese and Cajun) adventure with the Chef’s Rolls, pretty packages of slightly spicy stir-fried beef with basil and vermicelli wrapped in the vivid leaves of mustard greens. Two of us shared the Saigon Sunrise, a bountiful platter of good eats including two large, thin grilled pork chops, a mound of toothsome shredded pork skin, and a tasty wedge of crab-and-pork cake (with it came a colorful array of mandoline-sliced nectarines, pears, and peach kimchi, and quite a bit more). The simple little space is freshly remodeled and shipshape. We look forward to further adventures.
