If it's Wednesday it must be Lengua - La Perla

gordon wing | Feb 28, 200702:05 PM     7

Finally made it to La Perla on a Wednesday for the Tongue (Lengua) special. ChowFun and others were oh so right - this is a great dish. One of the best ever preparations of tongue ... it's braised with lots of veggies ( green beans, potatoes, bell pepper, jalapeno, tomato, carrots, etc.... ) until the tongue is very tender and savory. This lunch special available only on Wednesdays is $7.00 and is a good value. Thin, crispy chips with a fire roasted salsa (that's also firy in flavor) gets you off to a good start. The lengua plate came relatively quickly .... followed by the freshly made warm house tortillas. As advised, I asked for some salsa fresca and got a ramekin of that. Talk about being all set up .... loved the beans and the tortillas were as good as promised. The waitress was very nice - coming around to check on me several times. She brought me a take out carton without being asked. I ate about 60% of my lunch - enough leftover for a nice snack.
When I ordered my lunch I also ordered a dozen tortillas to take home..they are now $3.00.

La Perla - 222 Lux Ave South SF 650.589-8302 Ca$h only.
Lux Ave is 4 blocks North of Grand Ave.
