Strings Ramen Shop serves Japanese ramen in Chinatown. The concept of Strings was to take the street style and put it indoors. The restaurant has a main “alleyway” and little walkways that simulate the appearance of streets. The interior of Strings is almost entirely wood which adds a sense of nature and comfort to the restaurant. From the floors and walls, and to the benches, the wood is comforting and amicable which augments the warmth one will find in a bowl of ramen. The white lanterns that float from the ceiling give the customers a sense of relaxation. The kitchen is open and the customers can witness their ramen being made with great care and the highest quality ingredients
Opened in the beginning of 2014. James Beard Award-Winning and Thrillist writer rated Strings the #1 Ramen Shop in Chicago.
