When familiar faces struck a deal with The Greene to again take over the closed Choe’s Bistro, it was a case of old owners, cleaning up a new owners mess. Michelle and Charles Yang managed “Choe’s Asian Bistro” from December 2014 through March 2017. After turning it over to new management, back rent and tax questions forced The Greene to close the restaurant. The Yangs came back to the rescue re-opening the eatery in April 2018. Today, after 7 months, new management has fine tuned their dishes. They will be adding a new chef and new menu additions are around the corner. The Food Adventures Crew has exclusive scoop on what could be the turning point for Ace Asian Cafe.

Our patented “must eats”…
MUST EATS at ACE ASIAN CAFE:
The old standard and everyone’s favorite, seems to be the most popular menu item here. Nice and creamy and a sauce like you have never tasted before for dipping. It is a smoky sweet n sour sauce.
— BENTO BOX WITH TERIYAKI SALMON:
One of the best ways to sample the menu is through a Bento Box. And at the lunch price of $10.95 it is economical. You pick 2 entree dishes and it is served with a spring roll, rice, orange slices and a salad. Your entree choices include pad Thai, sushi rolls, Korean Bulgogi, Curry dishes and Chinese entrees.
— CALAMARI IN SPICY CHILI SAUCE:
Deep fried calamari rings with a fantastic dipping sauce. The sweet sauce and spice, is the perfect contrast to the light crunch. The calamari does not have a fishy taste at all.
— HOT N SOUR SOUP:
Their version is definitely worth ordering. All of their soups are good, but this one is the best. Mouth watering with a touch of heat.
— YELLOWTAIL NIGIRI
Then simple thought of a fresh piece of raw fish and rice. If raw is your thing, try the Yellowtail. Dip in wasabi and soy sauce to complete the tasty deal.
— THE WASHINGTON SUSHI ROLL:
Our favorite sushi roll is this one. It features cooked Shrimp Tempura, Cucumber, and cooked Crab topped with Salmon, Avocado, Tobago, Wasabi Dressing, Sweet Sauce & Goma Dressing. The result is a sweet and crunchy taste. If you like shrimp, crab and salmon, you must try this roll.
— GENERAL TSO’S CHICKEN:
They have a nice take on an old favorite. Medium sized chunks of deep-fried shrimp, tossed in a light brown sauce with stir fired vegetable surrounding the plate. A good, old-fashioned staple of Chinese cuisine done right.
— CHICKEN BULGOGI on the KOREAN BBQ TABLE:
You or the server get to cook this shredded marinated chicken on the table side grill. It is a fun experience and the aroma as the chicken cooks is amazing. A few minutes and sizzles later, and you have a piping hot chicken grilled dish in front of you. Served with rice, the grilled onion and spices are a perfect blend.
Katsu Chicken Bento Box – A nice white meat piece, sliced and panko fried, drizzled with Asian sauces.
Blue Crab Stuffed Salmon – Baked Salmon with blue crab, stir fired vegetables and Asian spices.
