Phallic decor at Chinese Cafe 8 in Roppongi

I sat right under this giant phallic gong at Chinese Cafe 8 in Roppongi a couple of weeks ago and ate peking duck. It was delicious! More pics on Boing Boing.

  1. Wndr if they have a restaurant like this in China.
    Do they have names on their menu like. Sperm soap. or Six Inch burger.
    Is the owner really Chinese.

  2. Lisa-sama,
    I am ashamed to admit that until you pointed it out that I never realized the bell was engraved with a very detailed inlay of a vagina. I did notice the giant penis, of course. The bell is extremely well-done. Perhaps the finest iron labia I’ve even seen in genital sculpture.
    Together, the two make quite a bang–I’m told. I’ve been going there for years and I would really like to actually ring that bell. Maybe that will be my goal for 2010.

  3. I’ve been there too a little while back, I went with for a meal my girlfriends parents… Quite a strange experience (i had no warning of the decor) although the food was really great.

  4. It was closed for the month of September for re-modelling. It is a strange thing to remodel a famous and tasty dump.
    But, alas not to worry- as expected- they mostly just polished the penises and table tops and the breasts on the walls.
    Still good Peking duck for 3675 yen
