Chien-Fu Roppongi


Restaurants & Cafés


Vegetarians stranded in Roppongi have a new place to go with the opening of this branch of Nakaichi Soshoku Ten, a Taiwanese veggie restaurant in Kunitachi that's been going since 1986. Like its parent shop, Chien-Fu – whose fourth-floor location affords scenic views of the Shuto Expressway – sticks to the principles of Chinese vegetarian cuisine. Meat and fish are out, but so too are strong-smelling veg like onions, garlic and shallots. In their place, you get ample greens and a range of ingenious mock meats, made with soy, gluten, yuba and even konnyaku. It's all awfully healthy, though the flavours are considerably more robust than what you'd get at the average vegan or macrobiotic restaurant. The ¥950 weekday lunch sets – a choice of four dishes, such as mapo tofu or mock pork with cashew nuts, served with a choice of brown or white rice – are particularly good value.
