A recent study found that Mexican people have stronger knees, are less affected by traffic stress, have mind control over houseflies and never have nightmares of cheese monsters or giant pillow creatures. Apparently it has something to do with the food they eat. Put this theory to the test with today’s deal – R250 worth of scrumptious authentic Mexican for only R112 at Cantina Tequila.

These rats then sniff out these napkins in the bins and then use them to weave ‘ropes’ with which to capture their prey. Many a dish-carrying waiter has tripped over these rat webs.
