The culinary architects at Yes Asia Cafe craft healthy meals using colorful ingredients and traditional Vietnamese recipes blended with modern taste innovations. The extensive menu boasts seasoned meats and veggies rolled without getting dizzy into appetizing wraps such as the barbecue pork spring roll with Vietnamese ham and the seaweed egg roll fitted with shrimp and crabmeat. Brothy bowls such as classic beef noodle pho rival even the greenest of St. Patrick's Day brews with simmering green onions, cilantro, and fresh basil leaves. French bread loaves bookend the eclectic assortment of paté, mayonnaise, eggs, and two types of ham in the heavily stacked wonder sandwich; seasoned Yes Asia chicken hides from falling skies in a sheltering bed of white rice, cucumbers, and tomatoes.
Along with sampling savory bites, diners may sip libations from a list of more than 60 teas, smoothies, and coffees. The leaves steeping in a cup of silver needle white tea hail from Fujian, China; an avocado smoothie with boba tapioca pearls makes slurping through a straw a sweet challenge, much like climbing a ladder to a loved one while carrying a bowling ball.

To Yes Asia Cafe owners Nancy and Tiger Huynh, their business in America is the end of a long journey that began with their families' attempts to escape to the US from Vietnam. Despite multiple tries each year, Nancy's family was always turned back. "There were scary moments," she writes on the café's website, "and I'm glad it's over." Tiger's family was luckier, drifting into a safe harbor after seven days in a tiny boat.
Today at Yes Asia Cafe, both Huynhs celebrate the cuisine of their childhoods with a menu of traditional pan-Asian and Vietnamese dishes. Like a poorly calibrated compass, banh mi sandwiches fuse East and West, stuffing crusty french bread rolls with fillings such as curry chicken and cured pork. Succulent morsels of barbecue pork and grilled beef mingle with cilantro, mint, pickled veggies, and peanuts in rice and noodle bowls. And an impressive drink menu cleanses palates with jasmine teas and jackfruit smoothies.
