S.T. Noodle Bar

S.T. Noodle bar is a Thai restaurant in Long Beach. The restaurant, which sits in a cluster of old buildings right across from Boeing’s Long Beach plant, fancies itself a modern fusion joint. You get the impression it’s a pet project by the next generation of the Sweetee Thai clan. A collection of porcelain animal heads decorate one wall. In the restroom, a waterless urinal has a video screen built into it. Design also counts for a lot in the dishes. Ask for the fried squid, and the rings arrive dangling on the branches of an ornamental metal tree. Order the fried tofu, a typical Thai restaurant appetizer, and it comes unnecessarily skewered on sticks. But perhaps the most outrageous dish of all is the salmon meing kum, a traditional Thai street snack elevated to something of a modern-art piece.
