      And yet when I cook I never need to add it.

      There’s never a need to add anything to your food, including salt and sugar.

      Adding salt just make your food taste better, especially restaurants where the food is heavily salted. Adding MSG can make your food taste the same while cutting down sodium intake by a third.

      MSG is the healthier alternative to table salt.

      No, but story of “MSG is bad for you” is a made up thing by local restaurant owners because all the Chinese restaurants are getting all the business.

      MSG

      Taste receptors on tongue cells are similar to glutamate receptors in brain cells. This is why MSG has a stimulatory side effect on the brain, and why it can damage the brain cells of newborns. Research has established that MSG side effects also include headaches and significant spikes in blood pressure.

      It is not going to kill you.

      Da fuck? Where is this research?

      Glutamates is in cheese and tomatoes. It’s what makes Italian food taste good.

      Did you read your own link?

      “Because of the absence of proper blinding, and the inconsistency of the findings, we conclude that further studies are required to evaluate whether or not a causal relationship exists between MSG ingestion and headache.”

    What’s wrong with MSG? Your Doritos are full of it.

      That's what I was wondering. The wikipedia page for it makes it sound perfectly safe.

      I always feel really uncomfortable after consumption. Especially my throat
      I am sorry i do not take doritos or ramen

      How do you know you just had MSG? What does pure MSG taste like? What exactly is this “uncomfort”? It sounds like you’re just thirsty.

      MSG reactions are possible but most people are not that sensitive to MSG. It’s a naturally recurring chemical in foods like Parmesan cheese and tomatoes. Most symptoms are just in people’s heads.

      The shitty restaurants are there. Chinatown is where poor Chinese live. The wealthy ones with good restaurants are out in the Sunset.

    M.Y. China sounds like its up your ally, but I’m siding with your grandma on this. One of the most historic Chinese restaurants in this city was Sam Wo’s and they made their rep on having one of the rudest waitresses. Free theatre.

    Are you looking for authentic Chinese food or American Chinese food? There’s a big difference.

    Don’t think there’s any good authentic ones in the city.
