After the bakery Oh la la! Recently opened, Nissan has been enriched by a new store specializing in Hawaiian cuisine, Kawaii. The couple Magnolia Léger and Grégory Catala opened their shop at n° 8, avenue de la Promenade instead of a hair salon.
They serve poke bowls. Grégory Catala explains: “Hawaiian meals are based on a bowl of Japanese rice, salad or quinoa to which we add protein – chicken, salmon, egg or feta – which we complete with fresh vegetables, raw vegetables”. Proteins are prepared in a homemade marinade and raw vegetables are a fresh product. After new dishes this summer, Kawaii will be offering hot bowls this winter.
After training as sushimen and various travels, Magnolia and Grégory came up with the concept of the poke bowl. To differentiate themselves from traditional Asian restaurants, they decided to serve Hawaiian cuisine.
