Yunnan Crossing Bridge Rice Noodle: Fu Li Zhang and Rachel Yuan, the owners of Buford Highway hand-pulled noodle house LanZhou Ramen, opened the first of two DIY rice noodle soup restaurants. The other is planned for Kennesaw and should open later this year. Diners choose a broth base and then meats and vegetables before assembling the soup according to instructions provided on the menu. Each bowl comes with a quail egg and noodles. Other snacks include soup dumplings, fried buns, and charcoal grilled kabobs.
Okiboru Tsukemen and Ramen: The LA import and 2019 Michelin Guide California Bib Gourmand ramen restaurant is now open at the Modera complex on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs. Okiboru specializes in tsukemen or “dipping ramen”, where noodles are served in a separate bowl and then dunked into a bowl of hot broth before eating. The restaurant makes its own noodles and also offers a small selection of other ramen beyond tsukemen and snacks like ebi karage (crispy fried shrimp).
E-Gyu Revolving Sushi BBQ: The sushi and Korean barbecue restaurant is located in the same complex as Red and Green Brazilian Steakhouse. Like other revolving sushi restaurants, diners take what they want from a rotating selection of covered sushi dishes on a conveyer belt passing by their table or order from the touchscreen menu. Tables also come equipped with small inset grills for cooking meats, which are also ordered from the touchscreen.
Lily White Mediterranean: The Mediterranean-American restaurant and bar, located on Pharr Road, includes a menu of mezzes, hummus, kabobs, and other entrees like lamb shank as well as cocktails.
