Decadence is calling at Back Wine Bar & Bistro.
Close to Folsom Lake and easy to find, this gem offers a quiet, romantic reprieve from the everyday. Warm color tones and soft lighting serve as a nice backdrop, while paintings by Leeanne Laine line the walls with wild colors and beautiful artistry (the paintings are also available for purchase).
I decided to start my culinary adventure with the Almond Crusted Prawns. Dipped in the house-made romesco sauce and aged gran queso, they were to die for. For my entrée, I ordered the Yellowfin Ahi with basmati rice, tropical fruit salsa, spicy honey sriracha and soy reduction. Growing up near the ocean, I’m particular when it comes to seafood but thoroughly enjoyed this dish. The sesame-crusted tuna, salsa and sauce all complemented each other well and provided mouth-watering layers of flavor: sweet and tangy with a spicy kick at the end.
