EDL Weekender: Danfo Bistro Edition

Hey guys! It’s Folly here because bad things happened to Nosa’s laptop. It’s largely his fault because he treats it like it’s a Toyota Highlander when it’s really a fragile MacBook Air. While that’s getting sorted, I guess I have to take this over.

Of course, EDL playlists are back in 2019. Here’s this weeks version curated by Nosa - not me obviously.

I haven’t been but I saw an Instagrammer describe the decor as similar to your grandfather’s house as a positive compliment so I’m really intrigued.
