I was MSG poisoned here :-(
Posted on 08 / 15 / 2007
Ok, so beginning in chronological order. I went to The Wall a week ago for the first time and I thought that the food was really cheap and tasty. The lunch specials were $6.00 for a huge dish of food/rice and soup and fried spring rolls. Not bad at all. I got the Hunan chicken (the fake meat was really good.) Their soup have to be fore-warned or else they put eggs in them. After eating, I felt kind of tired- I didn't know why, so I just figured that it might be because of my lack of sleep the night before or something.
-Last night, I came back with a couple of friends for dinner. This time the food took way too long to come and it wasn't as tasty as the first time. I got the spicy sauce chicken and it was sooo salty! I forgot to mentioned "no eggs" to the hot and sour soup and I accidentally had some of it before somebody pointed that out to me!!! I was mortified that they had so much eggs in their food (their steamed dumplings as well.) Anyway, so I stuck to my brown rice and my chicken and the Mongolian beef, which isn't bad at all, but it has way too much onions for my liking. Anyway, halfway through the dinner, I started to feel the effect of the MSG. I got a headache, my neck started to sore, my hands felt all tingly, and my two friends also agreed that this restaurant uses a LOT of MSG. If you like cheap Chinese food, then I would strongly suggest that you go here for their lunch specials. If MSG makes you sick, like it did to me, then do not go here!
