Soi 30th, the friendly Thai restaurant that arrived in North Park back in 2017, has just landed in Ocean Beach. The eatery took over a former Subway location on Cable Street with the intention of opening back in April, but the pandemic delayed Soi OB’s debut until now.
Chef/owner Khwanta Osanai, who started cooking at a very young age in her native Thailand, is serving the popular Northern Thai specialties from the North Park menu, from curries and salads to noodles and rice dishes, including her signature crispy pork belly, paired with barbecued pork, egg, cucumber and a salty-sweet sauce, and a variety of vegan and vegetarian options.
Open daily for takeout from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., the Ocean Beach outpost features menu additions including mushroom larb, nam tok, or waterfall beef salad, and Crying Tiger, a classic Thai dish of steak serve with a spicy dipping sauce. There’s also selection of grilled skewers, including chicken satay, marinated pork, and baby octopus.
