Ramen expert and trippin regular Biancissimo, spills the beans on how to navigate the 10,000 or so Ramen shops in the Japanese capital. He's spent years narrowing down the never ending amount of options and bowls, so trust him when he says these are the top 10. "So you finally made it to Tokyo, and of course, you want some ramen, right? So don’t panic I got you. Let me introduce you to 10 of my favourite spots and teach you a little bit about that bowl of life and accelerator of my Tokyo belly.
So rule number one, and actually only rule of this guide: Don’t open Yelp, don’t open Trip Advisor, try not to trust too many white people using an app to rate Japanese cuisine. Believe me, this will not get you anywhere. The highest rated ramen shop in Tokyo on these apps, probably even the highest rated restaurant in Tokyo is A Ichiran Ramen chain shop. And that's sad."
