Mouthfuls heaven, surely. (Or did I miss the thread?)

Let's be honest. We all knew they were huge d-bags, so this isn't exactly high on the list of surprises.

Given that Steinthal is "afraid of" Indian food, it's not all that surprising: http://www.theinfatu...oti-mahal-delux
When I wrote for them back in 2013, they published a review that had the following "joke" in it: "OK, first of all, this dish contained an ingredient called rapeseed. No idea what that is, but as a group of people that have the maturity level of twelve year olds, let’s giggle about it for a second."
I had to email them to tell them to take it out.

Looks like the first shot in the Eater/Infatuation war has been fired.

I ate there once. I was mildly disappointed. It wasn't bad, but I think a place like this has to be really really good to have a reason to exist at all. And it just wasn't.

(The Infatuation review is, of course, beneath contempt.)

I think we're all too afraid of the admins arbitrarily deciding that the discussion is political, then shutting it down.

I really don't find the review all that offensive. It's not in excellent taste, but I'm not really offended by it. I mean, I'm not Chinatown Chinese, but it's not like Serena Dai is either (as far as I can tell).

I don't think it's excitingly offensive, either. It just reflects a douchey view of food and dining that I find contemptible.
Of course, they have their audience.
(Of course, it really IS about Eater v. Infatuation.)

Now you know how I feel about coverage of diversity in tech.
