Strings Ramen

Strings Ramen Shop -- the first of its kind in Chicago, brings a piece of authentic Japanese culture and culinary tradition to the heart of Chicago. When people hear the word “ramen,” they often think instant, microwaveable, sodium-filled noodles. What most don't realize is that true, authentic ramen is an intricate dish embodying Japanese culture. After World War II, ramen became the signature dish of Japan due to its reasonable cost and hearty nature. Recently, ramen has begun traveling the world, and has now arrived Chicago with the opening of Strings Ramen Shop. While a sprinkling of Chicago restaurants have begun adding ramen to a long list of varied menu options, Strings Ramen Shop is the first and only establishment in Chicago to fully embrace the emerging, red-hot ramen phenomenon, dedicating itself to ramen -- complete with an imported Japanese mixer and noodle maker which cranks out thin, ribbony strings of fresh, house-made ramen noodles throughout the day and long into the evening. Strings Ramen Shop's menu focuses on the four main styles of ramen: Shio, Tonkotsu, Shoyu, and Miso, each topped with options like sliced duck breast, Kurobuta (aka Berkshire) pork, snow crab, scallops and more. Open Sun-Thur 11 a.m. to midnight, Fri-Sat 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., the 45-seat Strings Ramen Shop is located at 2141 South Archer, Chicago.
