A sushi family takes ATL’s advice and goes ramen
After the folks behind Eight Sushi Lounge on the west side started winning the Atlanta Ramen Festival in 2016, they realized they’d better get to the money. We now have the recently opened E Ramen +, which has that brand-new vibe thanks to clean interior design that includes a gorgeous marble and wood bar. Sit here and get yourself a bowl of butter-garlic lobster ramen, in lobster miso broth, because there’s literally nothing better you can do for yourself. They’ve got plenty of other options that impress (brothless, vegan, spicy chicken, and more), but seriously -- lobster ramen. Yes, $20 a bowl. You deserve it and so does Atlanta.
Pull up on these freshly hand-pulled noodles now
Ramen that has been recently pulled by the hands of human noodle gods is something you don’t know you’re missing out on until you have it. At LanZhou, you can watch these imperfectly perfect, edible strings of super gluten being stretched and formed by hand through a window, and then you can eat them. And since that’s the real point of coming (you’ll only go mad staring at noodles so beautiful without eating), go ahead and decide your noodle size (from regular to thin and down to flat), then get them in a bowl with one of dozens of proteins, including oil-poured spicy chicken.
