Kohien is an old-school Chinese restaurant that has been around since 1963 and has somehow survived in this mostly modern part of town (Roppongi). That explains the retro feel of the interior and the atmosphere of this place. This place was introduced to us by a friend who has been coming here for a while. Why this place? Well, it’s famous for their chicken broth noodle soup that has a lot of collagen in it (it makes your skin literally glow the next day…). It’s like a woman’s dream soup and because of that, models and celebrities are often spotted here.

The noodle soup is very mild but has a suprisingly good flavor to it — kind of like a really good chicken noodle soup. Every single table ordered this dish and it’s clearly their staple. The shrimp egg roll was not that impressive but the fried rice noodle was good. They supposedly have a secret menu item which you’d never suspect if you look through the rest of their menu. It’s actually “Curry”… but i’m not sure if I’d order curry at a Chinese restaurant. Anyhow, this place is open till 4am(!) so you can come here if you missed the last train, or if you’re hungry for something in the middle of the night.

  1. I went to Kohien with some friends last week and really, really enjoyed the soup. It looked like a big portion from your photos, so we ordered one for the three of us since it was our first time..the staff were a bit shocked. I can easily polish off a bowl of that to myself now! Thanks for the article. The hours make it a great option for a late night meal, which I appreciate since I work all the time. ;)
