    an asian bowl and a day in burrow café

    Down the rabbit hole it was. Prior to arriving in Burrow Café, André jokingly implied, “burrow? as in burrow?” and dug relentlessly in mid-air.

The footpath ended with a door that opened to the ethereal feels of the restaurant. It was beautiful and that is an understatement.
