Chinese cafe Eight in Roppongi – Uncover the mysteries of traditional Chinese cuisine

Chinese cafe Eight (中国茶房8) is a tad mysterious, starting from the number in its name and ending with its design, especially in the main, Roppongi Hills branch. But the most mysterious thing is how they manage to serve good quality Chinese food at prices of a cafeteria?Chinese Cafe EightThe specialty of Chinese cafe Eight is Beijing duck, and customers prove it almost every 5 minutes. You will see the famous duck at every second table. Unfortunately for me, it is too greasy to appeal to my husband, so I do is stare at it and imagine its taste.Chinese Cafe Eight

Chinese cafe Eight is a chain cafe that has 6 locations all over Tokyo. Wherever you visit their branch, be sure that you will be completely immersed into authentic Chinese cuisine by experienced native chefs.Chinese Cafe EightAs a starter we had pig ears with cucumber and carrot. It may sound not very appetizing but in reality tastes good.Chinese Cafe EightWe never stop admiring the affordable prices here. This time the dinner cost was 3000 yen for two, and we were completely stuffed. When ordering a pot of hot tea, please keep in mind that it is huge! We had steamed dumplings, boiled meat dumplings, and soup.Chinese Cafe EightThe cafe works 24 hours, with several comprehensive breakfast sets from 5 to 10 AM. Drop by and check it out if you have a chance.Chinese Cafe Eight

As for the number in the name of the cafe, my guess is: there are “Eight Culinary Cuisines” of China. Recipes from all of them are present in the menu. Cantonese and Sichuan are probably the most famous ones.Chinese Cafe EightEvery other week on Tuesdays Chinese Cafe Eight holds a meeting of the Chinese Enthusiast Club, where you can have dinner, find new friends, practice Chinese language, and even have your photo taken in a traditional costume of China.Chinese Cafe Eight
