I've never tried Mee So Hungry, but I cringed a little every time I passed by it on Belmont Shore's Second Street. I took a picture of it once on the way to another restaurant, never really deciding then whether I thought the 2 Live Crew allusion was stupid or clever, but I never gave it a second thought after that. I wish I did.
Now it's gone (it closed sometime in January, actually) after two years in business. The restaurant that replaced opened about a week ago. It's called Seaside Salads, whose title is neither stupid nor clever, but it has a menu that might be just clever, considering the hip neighborhood.
There's not just tofu and quinoa, but also tempeh. A new item just debuted: Vegan tofu scramble with garlic spinach and kale, quinoa, asparagus and balsamic syrup. And they're taking suggestions and comments from customers on Facebook.Follow Stick a Fork In It on Twitter @ocweeklyfood or on Facebook! And don't forget to download our free Best Of App here!
