What is Ramen Beast?

The expert guide to Japan’s vast ramen underworld.

We are a group of Tokyo-based ramen fanatics. Our ramen-critic-in-chief is Abram Plaut, aka the Ramen Beast himself. Half of our team is Japanese, half is from overseas. We eat enormous quantities of ramen across Japan and share our intel, experiences and critical opinions through our website, our Substack newsletter and the Ramen Beast app for iPhone.
