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.

Barolo started a new seafood Sunday brunch (11.30am-2pm) this month. The menu is available a la carte or as a set, including selections like a scallop carpaccio with Campari orange dressing, roasted cod fish wrapped in Spanish ham and a sea urchin omelet with salmon caviar. Two courses run for RMB 248, three for RMB 308 and four for RMB 338 (includes limitless coffee or tea within set menus). Free-flow Champagne Perrier Jouet Brut available for an additional RMB 298 per person.

Deli de Luxe has a new website with menus available for the cafe, delivery and catering. Beginning after the Chinese New Year holiday, delivery will be available through Sherpa’s.
