If the post-holiday period has you feeling a little wack – emotionally, mentally, physically – kale is probably the way to go. That green is ridiculously nutritious, albeit hard to source in Beijing. Happily, Moka Bros has done the dirty work and will be offering a kale smoothie starting on Friday. Drink down your beta carotene, calcium and viatmins C, K ad A for same price as all the other smoothies – medium RMB 38, large RMB 45.
