Atlanta has oodles of noodles from which hungry residents can choose. One that is growing in popularity around the world — and is one of Japan’s most popular foods — is ramen.
In Japan, ramen is treated with the same reverence as the South’s beloved barbecue. Tonkotsu versus shoyu is akin to Carolina versus Memphis, Angela Hansberger writes for the 2019 AJC Fall Dining Guide: The Noodle Edition.
With the temperatures falling, a steaming bowl of ramen can really hit the spot. But where do you go in Atlanta to savor the flavor of noodles, broth, meat and toppings? This week’s Best of Atlanta poll wants to know: Who has the best ramen in Atlanta?
