Welcome to Kalé
WHAT IS A KALÉ DISH?
At Kalé , we serve the dish that has been the ultimate comfort food to Japanese for over a century. On average, a Japanese person is likely to eat the dish 84 times a year; undoubtedly, it is one of the most popular food in Japan. Savory, and similar to a stew consisting of meat, onions, carrots, tomatoes, and many other vegetables, locals enjoy it over Japanese rice. Americans who have been to Japan and tried it mostly say, “It’s addictive!”
