Lan Noodle

Lan Noodle greets you with a show. Traditional Mandarin songs pour from the speakers, clangs of stock pots fill the dining room, and a chef calmly swinging strands of dough stands behind a kitchen window. There are eight noodle shapes to choose from, which puts most noodle spots to shame. The signature Lan noodles come with thin slices of melt-in-your-mouth beef, buttery soft radish, and a generous scoop of chili oil, all submerged in beef broth. For a creamier and nuttier broth, the Lanzhou Street Noodles stand out from the usual suspects—instead of beef stock, the vegetarian-friendly broth is enriched with peanut and sesame paste. And if you’re closer to the Westside than the SGV, Lan Noodle also has a location in West Hollywood.
