Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The northeast corner of Alameda Avenue and Downing street has been home to a string of Asian restaurants since the late 1990s. What originally opened as Stir Crazy quickly changed names to the Crazy Asian Cafe, which survived until 2012, when new owners took over and gave it the name Spicy Ginger Asian Bistro. 

But now Spicy Ginger is closed, and construction is already under way to convert the space into something new. A message on the Spicy Ginger website points customers in the direction of Sweet Ginger Asian Bistro and Sushi under the same ownership in Cherry Creek North.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
