A brand new tapas and champagne fusion bar opens in Santa Rosa

Kancha is the little tapas and bubble place I’ve all the time dreamed downtown Santa Rosa would assist.

For starters, Chef Angel Cayllahua is an skilled chef and sommelier with a easy however ridiculously good menu of cold and warm tapas-style plates that pulls from his Peruvian upbringing and Japanese restaurant coaching. Its sake assortment is gorgeous, the bubbly flights are incredible, and the comfortable inside area that beforehand housed the Jade Room and Fourth Road Social Membership has been toned all the way down to match the clear, brilliant dishes rising from the kitchen the dimensions of a thimble.

Chilly seafood bites of ceviche, tartar and causas (a Peruvian potato dish) are Cayllahua’s specialty. The salmon tartare ($17) is topped with a candy ponzu (tart Asian citrus) mousse and sprinkled with pine nuts and serrano peppers for a candy and briny chunk. The Limena Causa ($22) is especially good, made with a base of whipped purple potato tossed with lime juice and aji amarillo (a Peruvian yellow pepper) and topped with a creamy crab salad sleeper.

Bigger sizzling entrees embrace Dungeness Crab Truffles ($24), Mushroom Risotto Fritters with Tiger Prawns ($16), and Lomo Saltado Empanadas ($18) made with strips of beef tenderloin in soy sauce . Do not miss the Very Grownup Mac and Cheese ($16), a surprisingly good Peruvian twist on conventional macaroni and cheese that makes use of a creamy and tangy huancaina sauce made with garlic, queso fresco, saltines, cream and aji amarillo peppers with a panko crust. Cayllahua mentioned he plans so as to add crab to the macaroni, which is able to make it much more decadent.

The mussels ($18) are served with a Peruvian inexperienced curry sauce and toasted bread. Though the broth is harking back to candy inexperienced curry, it’s flavored with Chica de Jora, a corn beer, and Huacatay, a black mint paste. It is a quintessentially Peruvian mixture that works completely with the light mussels of the ocean.

For dessert, Cayllahua affords a refreshing coconut parfait with coconut tapioca pearls, crushed ice, mango puree and coconut mousse that rounds off the meal completely.

The wine listing is spectacular, as befits an expert sommelier, however tasting flights ($35) of premier cru champagne and glowing wines are your finest wager.

Nonetheless, the query stays whether or not Cayllahua’s fledgling enterprise stands an opportunity towards ongoing struggles with parking, homelessness, excessive meals prices, staffing shortages and Sonoma County’s normal disinterest within the heart. -town of Santa Rosa.

Kancha’s out of doors meals park is quickly to develop, and with the cool night climate, the entrance window seats are an amazing place to eat and other people watch. Blissful hours from 3:30 p.m. to five:30 p.m. each day are an amazing begin, with offers on small bites of ceviche, crispy empanadas, bubbles, and low-alcohol cocktails. At a latest Wednesday night time market within the Previous Courthouse Sq., a handful of individuals went to Kancha’s bar for a drink.

After two extra failed eating places within the area, we’re crossing our fingers that the gifted Cayllahua will entice the type of crowd keen to pay for high quality meals in a comfortable, upscale environment. The restaurant would most likely reach Healdsburg or Sonoma, that are thought of high quality eating locations, however in Santa Rosa? Let’s hope so.

643 Fourth St., Santa Rosa, 707-623-9793, kanchasr.com. The menu is on the market to remove. Vegan and vegetarian choices accessible. Please notice: the employees was sparse after we visited, however with endurance you will discover the service to be pleasant.
