Kale the new health hero

For those of you that are not familiar with KALE, Kale is a vegetable with frilly leaves that is high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and rich in calcium. Kale is a source of two carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin.

It contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical with potent anti-cancer properties.
Kale is said to boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells as well as lowering cholesterol and decrease absorption of dietary fat.[citation needed]

Quoted from Wiki, so if that's all true, then KALE is a real hero for our health.

Anyway, I kept seeing these delicious sliders on Facebook and salads from KALE so I was really excited for it to open. They are really creative because they have so many creations with kale such as kale biscotti, kale granola bars etc. 
When it finally opened I went there.

It is on the 13th Floor of Cheung's building near the Sheung Wan MTR.
When you enter the place, you are greeted with a lovely seaview and buildings nearby.

The stools are stylish because they look like unicycles.

The menu was simple and clear with a choice of sliders, dips, fries and drinks.

I went for the sliders, fries with a dip, wheatgrass shot and a drink.
It was really good that everything had Kale in it from fresh kale leaves to kale and pesto sauce.
[b]Sliders $28 each:[/b]
I chose three sliders: chicken, tofu and falafel.

 [b]Falafel slider:[/b]
The falafel slider was interesting because the falafel patty was moist and soft flavoured by lovely spices. There was pesto and kale sauce on top which gave it an amazing flavour.

[b]Chicken Slider:[/b]
The chicken slider was colourful and delicious topped with fresh kale and tomato and dressed with creamy avomayo sauce which was avocado and apple cider vinegar.

[b]Tofu Slider:[/b]
The tofu slider was my favourite because the piece of tofu was huge and tasty with cucumber, kale and tomato.
[b]Fries $35:[/b]

This was a mix of sweet potato and potatoes which were sweet and delicious that were garnished it with fried sweet potato skin on top for more flavour and a bed of kale.
[b]Avocado hummus $25:[/b]
The avocado hummus was divine because the avocado gives it that smooth texture blended with chickpeas.
[b]wheatgrass shot $38:[/b]
The wheatgrass shot was surprisingly good because I was expecting it to taste grassy but it's naturally sweet.
[b]Loco $45:[/b]
A blend of young coconut, tahini, dates and avocado
I really liked this because it had my favourite young coconut and avocado.
It was sweet, thick and delicious with pieces of young coconut in it.
Coming back soon for more sliders and drinks.
