MSG is Nasty

We had dinner tonight at a newer, Chinese restaurant in Alameda that we've enjoyed before, and even though we asked that MSG not be used in our food, it was in there anyway.

I feel like I ate a giant bowl of soy sauce soup. I'm not sure if I could be any more bloated - though I'm not anxious to find out.

The weird low-grade headache is annoying, as is the "clearing throat cough" as I've described it to Ms. Crafty and G-dawg.

Why would any self-respecting restaurateur use MSG? Their food seems to be high quality, like they wouldn't need to add that crap, but maybe they don't know what they're doing in the kitchen.

I know we won't be going there again unless they ditch the chemicals.
