Garlic noodles near Civic Center?

Handyman | Mar 8, 2007 06:05 PM

Can you help me locate a name of a restaurant , a hole in the wall type of place, that the missus and I had been to once before? It is a few doors down a side street near Civic Center area, between Market and Mission, close to Market. The missus still raves about their garlic noodles from at least a year ago. I do vividly remember the framed pics/letters on the wall from celebrities thanking them for their food, as supplied to them when they are in town. I thought it was Tu Lan on Sixth Street, but it was not after a recent visit. But about the same location on a street, but closer to Civic Center. My wife would be forever happy if I take her there again. Might it be a Thai restaurant instead of Vietnamese as I thought? The people at Tu Lan thought my wife was nuts when she tried hard to tell them she thought they had garlic noodles on their menu in the past, only to be rebuffed. Past memories are hard to place into exact details when you feel like you are getting older......

BTW, Tu Lan was a painful experience when we were there, though I enjoyed my meal and cheap prices. The eyes of the four of us were absolutely burning due to the air in the restaurant. Must be a bad exhaust system. One of our party left after about 15 minutes of suffering the ol' eye burn.
