Hospital food just got a lot better

Rare is the day that anyone enjoys a trip to the hospital. But now there's a good reason to visit the hospital—specifically, the Intermountain Medical Campus in Murray and its Siam Noodle Bar.

Far from typical hospital fare, this is a Thai noodle restaurant with delicious options, including a build-your-own noodle bar. Before going the DIY route, though, it's worth trying the restaurant's signature dishes, like the beef stew noodle soup: rice noodles, bean sprouts, bok choy, celery, green onion, cilantro and fried garlic in a clear broth—was recommended as a signature dish. The beef was falling-apart tender, and the veggies were all al dente and delicious, giving the dish a fresh, authentic taste—as though it had been cooked over a fire in a quiet mountain village.

Another recommended dish, the teriyaki pulled pork, was beautiful both in its presentation and in its flavors. It's more rustic than what you might usually expect from a pulled-pork sandwich, as the food at Siam Noodle Bar is truly Asian, not Americanized Asian.

Noodle bowls allow you to pick your noodles (vermicelli, rice noodle, ramen, glass noodle, chow fun or Chinese egg), your protein (tofu, beef, pork or chicken) and from a wide selection of vegetables. Your simmering meal will be garnished with bean sprouts, celery, cilantro, garlic, ginger, green onions, lime and white pepper.

After eating here once, you might start visiting often enough that friends and family will worry about why you go to the hospital so often. Just bring them along to ease their minds and fill their stomachs—no appointment necessary.
