Venue Info

The chicken wings at Inner Sunset's San Tung are regularly cited as San Francisco's best. They're battered, fried, and tossed in a signature sweet-and-spicy peppery glaze, but the move here is to order them dry, before they're doused in sauce. The crunchy, golden brown exterior gives way to a tender meat interior seasoned with ginger and garlic. Order a plate or two for the table and don't ignore the rest of the menu, which features comforting Chinese dishes like shrimp & leek dumplings, black bean sauce noodles, and sautéed garlic string beans.
