Description

"The first app in English that gets under the skin of Tokyo’s ramen scene." – Vice

Ramen Beast is a connoisseur's guide to the very best ramen shops of Japan. Over 10,000 bowls of ramen were eaten to create this app. Only the finest shops are included in the app (no chains, no tourist traps).

Ramen Beast does one simple thing: it directs you to the best ramen in Japan. We are obsessive about our recommendations and information. We've spent years eating ramen across Japan. This app was created to share that knowledge.

APP FEATURES:

— Discover more than 500 of Tokyo's very best ramen shops, spanning the traditional, innovative and downright bizarre.
— Get recommendations in English and Japanese on which bowl to order at every shop.
— Navigate by category, including: Tokyo's Top 20, Tonkotsu, Miso, Tsukemen, Old School, Late-Night and Weird Shops.
— In-depth reviews of every shop, including details of shop specialty, chef's history, specialty ingredients, basic ordering tips, ramen lore and more.
— Essential info: shop address, hours, ramen style, etc.

Great app, needs a bit of tweaking imo

I downloaded this app after seeing the creator featured in one of the Facebook pages I am following. It has steadily improved and has covered ramen shops outside of Tokyo as well. I visited a ramen restaurant near Sagamino Station in Kanagawa called Hokkaido Ramen Denmaru and it isn’t there. I’m not surprised, since the creator did mention that this is a one-man project, if I remember correctly. Covering ALL the shops in Japan will take years and a lot of money. I guess he needs to add a link or button that will allow us to add restaurants not included in here and rate it ourselves. Make it like the Yelp for ramen, you know what I mean?

However, please be aware and read the app description before downloading, this app is intended for foreigners who are living in Japan. If you’re in the States, Yelp is your best bet.
