If you like garlic noodles and have $12 to spare, then it’s time to order from Perilla. Even if you don’t like garlic noodles or have $12 to spare, then sell some non-essential belongings (perhaps the Nintendo Wii you bought on impulse?) because you need to order from here. This small Vietnamese restaurant in the Inner Sunset combines fresh, chewy egg noodles with a holy mixture of butter, garlic, and oyster sauce, and serves them with five-spice chicken, charbroiled pork chops, and deep-fried Imperial rolls. All three of Perilla’s locations (they’re also in Hayes Valley and Union Square) are available for takeout and delivery.
The garlic noodles and five-spice chicken from this Vietnamese restaurant in the Inner Sunset are the edible equivalents of hugs from friends we haven’t seen in months. And since we’re not hugging it out right now (sorry, is someone cutting onions in here?), we’ll take all the noodles and chicken we can get. Order them with a side of deep-fried imperial rolls, which are perfection.
