Best of 2015

2015 has been an exciting year for Better Than Ramen. 

After a hiatus earlier this year, Better Than Ramen came back in full force in September with a fresh look and appetizing new content.

After college graduation, we rebranded ourselves as the young professional’s guide to eating your way through your new city without spending your whole paycheck. We expanded our coverage from DC to Philadelphia, Chicago, New York, Seattle, and Boston and plan to add restaurant reviews from even more cities in 2016.

We focused heavily on improving Better Than Ramen’s social media presence, and recently reached 1,000 followers on Instagram!

We told you that Better Than Ramen was named the 5th most-read food blog in Washington by Zomato. At the time of publication, we are now DC’s 3rd most-read food blog!

To celebrate the end of 2015, we have compiled a list of Better Than Ramen’s 15 most-read posts of this year.
