If you find standard ramen too greasy, this Machida shop is worth a shot: they let the soup cool off overnight and remove all the extra fat, making for a low-calorie, healthy version of Japan's favourite fast food. Koshinbo's most popular dish is the Ajitama Ramen (¥800), served in a mild 'double soup' made from pork bones, vegetables and dried seafood. The noodles are thin and elastic, while toppings include eggs, leek, chashu pork, nori seaweed and lettuce. In keeping with the healthy theme, they also serve salads and portions with smaller amounts of noodles.
