Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Strings sets itself apart from the recent influx of ramen slingers by making its own noodles in the basement on a Japanese machine, and they’re firm, with a nice bite. Get them in a variety of ramen bowls, like the tonkotsu, which has a deep, meaty broth filled with garlic, sesame, scallions and thick slabs of pork. Add an egg and it’ll come with a perfectly cooked yolk that spills into the broth. There’s a happy hour, from 3-5pm, when you can get three free oden sticks, which are skewers served in broth—we liked the soft egg as well as the fish ball. Finish it off with a sweet Japanese soda, and you won’t miss dessert.
