OK, but Mexican food smells like sick even when it's fresh.

Are Mexicans in the pogrom?



You'll be happy to know I rented a place out to an Indian today.


As an aside to this- I have had dealings in the past with a landlord who mentions a very diverse tenant history who won't let his properties to middle class, single Asian or South American professionals in their 20s/30s (property is in commuting distance of Vincent's,UCD etc.).

He's a well travelled, urbane gent with otherwise very liberal views who will rent to social welfare, single parents and anyone regardless of race- his argument is that in his experience the cohort above have been bad tenants and leave the place in a state- he reckons it's because they are highly likely to have grown up in a house with domestic staff and believe cleaning is beneath them and are too tight to pay Irish cleaners rates...

We had Indian neighbours across the corridor in an apartment building once. They were extremely pleasant and never caused disruption.

However the smell of their cooking in the communal areas was extremely strong and, to my nose, unpleasant. I can't imagine what it was like inside because I know the doors were of pretty good quality.

Several south Asians have said to me over the years that western cuisine is tasteless to their palette and that they add what we could consider huge amounts of spices to their food to make it taste normal.

Millionaire landlord who evicts pregnant women hikes rent by £50 just an HOUR after 0.25% interest rate rise
A millionaire landlord who previously evicted pregnant women and banned "coloured people" from his homes hit hundreds of families with extra charges yesterday.

Controversial buy-to-let tycoon Fergus Wilson slapped an extra £50 a month on tenants within an hour of the Bank of England's interest rate rise last night.

In hot climates the meat goes rancid more quickly, aren't curry and spices used to hide any rancid taste?

That certainly was the case for British troops stationed in India back in the day, curry every other day.

Several spices, particularly turmeric and cinnamon, contain compounds that are bactericidal, so they act as preservatives in a limited way.

Large parts of India are essentially vegetarian so that's not the reason I suspect
