Strings started out in Chicago, quickly taking the Windy City by storm and opening a total of three popular venues there. It also featured on Time Out Chicago's list of the best ramen restaurants in the city. So when we heard that NYC was getting its very own branch in the East Village, we were very excited.
Rather than serving a range of entrees, as you might expect in a Japanese restaurant, Strings focusses on one thing and one thing only: ramen. So we'd expect that it's pretty damn tasty. Don't worry about being limited on flavours either, there are a variety of broths and extra ingredients to choose from to take your bowl to the next level. Oh, and the noodles are all made fresh every day with a noodle maker that Strings imported from Japan, you can be sure you're getting the real deal.
It's worth noting that Strings operates first-come, first-served, so you can't book ahead.
