    Why not just save the money and cook your own?

    This is simple and won't blaze your face off. Don't use as much oil as he did though.

    EDIT: Also I did this twice, once as the video shows and once by blending the tomato and onions. The blended version was a lot better.

    All of those are great except for Chinese. Chinese food (in this country) typically has poor quality meat and is covered in stinky sauces to hide the fact you're probably eating an AIDS infested dog.

    Pizza is lovely but it's just one dish. Chippy is quality, but it's just chips with a pie, or battered fish, or saveloy at the end of the day. Nowhere near as varied as Indian cuisine.

    Yeah I see the appeal with so much variety. Tbh though I'm just a complete pussy when it comes to spicy food, can't handle it.

    Real talk though why don't west africans invent restaurants?

    Heck even Carribeans and the arab africans are inventing chain restaurants yet africans don't? There's enough variety in the meals and you can always make up new meals that you can make. It's not hard to make. Rice and beans(of your choice) Africans make that. Jollof african make that, simple rice and meaty stew, pounded yam/Fufu(although would never buy this), light soup. fried yam, Heck make an english section as well with fish and chips to initially attract the customers.

    They can make all these restaurants in ghana/nigeria and the ones you get from the people in the street is great food yet they come to England and are more bothered with bank scams and spending what they have on jewellery. We need more black businesses it's simple.

    Black people aren't wealthy, at most they're rich.
    Also yes Swarly I watched the video and wholeheartedly agree with Chris Rock.

    Tbf Black people are getting more wealthy and as Chris said we're new to this sort of wealth.

    People like Kanye West help to an extent but their lyrics are just as hypocritical("I know spike lee gon kill me when I finish") and they know it as it makes them more money and keeps them relevant. They know what the community needs but they're more bothered in making their money.

    All I'll say is buy a man a fish they'll eat for a day teach a man to fish they'll eat for a lifetime.

    Also bought a lamb jalfrezzi today and tbh I still prefer Chinese, the spices just aren't of the right taste, Wilf you're a gasman, this is the best restaurant in my borough btw that I went to and I'd have made a better meal at home with rice and peas and stew.

    unsure whether to drop most of my savings on a Mercedes SLK or wait till I have a job.

    srs.

    help brahs.

    it makes more sense to make small monthly payments instead of paying all at once aswell, right? you end up paying a little interest, but its more 'financially healthy'?

    Meh, south asian food is spicy but the spices aren't tasty, african spices are better. Problem with Asian food is that I compare it to african food and african food just wins. Chinese is a whole different dynamic. Depends on the restaurant you go to as well but my place is nice. I get the bbq sauce on top but even the dry one is nice. Also Wilf talking about stinky sauces yet goes to an indian. Strong consistency. If you leave indian food in your house it stays in the place for the next day and feels revolting. Too much garlic.

    Basically I blew £10 on a lamb jalfreezi and pilau rice, it was goodish but what I get at a carribean shop or what my mum makes at home is better.

    What do you think about Gomorrah? I like the film, so I was curious.

    Also went to see A Most Wanted Man, pretty impressed. Not a thrill ride but more a cagey and tense film. Not sure a good film is worth a cinema visit, more to do with visuals for me, but worthy of a watch for Seymour Hoffman alone.

    I was actually recommended Gomorrah like 2 weeks back, hearing really good things about it, haven't watched it yet though, will check it out soon now that you've reminded me.

    Also reminds me to check out another ganster show in Peaky Blinders, it's based on crime in Birmingham in the early 1900's, you seen it Wilf? Remember reading this article on it a year back: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...ngham-24047750

    And I'll check it out, the director did The American which I thought was pretty mediocre but it's getting good reviews and the like.

    Can;t believe Fincher and Nolan are having films out within the space of a few weeks of one another, respectively 2nd and 3rd in my favourite directors list, it's going to be awesome.

    Can imagine. Tell a lie, I do sometimes eat Chinese, but there's a big shop near me called Wing Yip you can buy the ingredients in, may as well cook it myself.

    Yes mate, it is excellent, very gripping, definitely give it a watch. The new series starts this Thursday so now is the perfect time to catch up on series 1. It was criticised for the accents being a bit chaotic but I thought Cillian Murphy got it spot on considering he's not even English.
