Where we've featured it
Perilla took over a space that used to be a Korean BBQ restaurant, and you can still get BBQ here if you want. But we like coming to this West Loop spot for the other Korean items on the menu. The best dishes here are the rich and tender fire chicken, the cheese corn with caramelized kernels under salty cotija, and the kimchi pancake, which is one of the best we’ve eaten in Chicago. This place is ideal for date night in the neighborhood, or a casual group dinner if you do decide to go the Korean BBQ route.
You can come to Perilla for Korean BBQ that’s just OK (most tables have a gas grill), but we prefer focusing on the other Korean dishes - like the spicy fire chicken, dumplings, or the kimchi pancake, which is one of the best in Chicago. This place is ideal for a date night in the neighborhood (there’s a great back patio), or a group dinner if you do decide to go the BBQ route after all.
