Mee So Hungry Closes in Long Beach; Seaside Salad Opens

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.

According to the sign in the photo, it was actually "Me Soo Hungry."  

So I guess it wasn't owned by the Mee family.  

Or maybe people thought it was owned by Viets (e.g. Lee/Le's, Mee/Me's) and dismissed it as unauthentic.
