A note about serious food allergies

It's not often a bowl of rice and vegetables can bring you to a place of cool meditative spirit, but we think we've hit the sweet spot here. Crunch snap peas and fresh broccoli are adorned by perfectly fried (by you!) tofu. Add in peanuts in droves (sauce and nuts), and a fresh citrus burst brought to you by lime, and we've got peaceful contemplation in a bowl. Nameste.
