LANZHOU RAMEN SOUP
The first thing I want to eat when there’s a nip in the air? Noodle soup. But not just any noodle soup, I want a bowl of warmth from LanZhou Ramen in Doraville.

You can actually see the chef making his noodles in the large display window when you’re eating there. Choose your protein and noodle style (my go-to is duck with thick, at noodles) and slurp until you don’t need that sweater anymore.
