Nan Zhou specializes in hand-pulled noodles, and that’s exactly what you should be ordering here. The spicy beef soup is the best - it comes in a salty broth, topped with cilantro, radish, and pickled greens. If you want something else besides noodles, you should also try the scallion pancakes or coconut chicken dumplings. It can get crowded, but the service is super fast. You should also know that they’re cash-only, but recently started accepting Venmo payments.
