Legendary Thai Cuisine Lives on at Spicy Sugar in Long Beach

July 27, 2021

Spicy Sugar, a favorite Thai dining destination located in the Alamitos Beach neighborhood of Long Beach, is now open Tuesday through Sunday for in-person dining with lunch offered from 11 a.m - 3 p.m. and dinner served 4 -11 p.m.  Guests can also order take-out and delivery. 

Located in an unassuming storefront on Broadway Avenue, Chef-owner Sugar Sungkamee and her staff offer an array of authentic Thai dishes made with fresh ingredients from family recipes that her father, the legendary Chef Suthiporn “Tui” Sungkamee, brought with him when he immigrated to the United States.

Among Spicy Sugar’s signature dishes are Tom Kha Soup, galangal coconut soup punctuated with mushrooms and tomatoes; Pineapple Fried Rice prepared with chunks of pineapple, cashews, and raisins; and Yellow Curry, featuring roasted curry with coconut cream. Most dishes from the menu can be made vegetarian or vegan.  Spicy Sugar also recently started serving Thai Singha Beer and sake.  

Spicy Sugar is located at 1538 E. Broadway just west of Falcon Avenue and is open Tuesday-Sunday from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m. for lunch and 4-11 p.m. for dinner.
