The menu doesn't say, but apparently the Chinese place near my parents' house loads up their food with MSG. Last night we had their food. It was good. I got a nasty headache later, which is odd, because I rarely get headaches (since I see my Chiropractor once in a while).
Tonight I ate the leftovers. Got another nasty headache. Then I put 2 and 2 together (finally?). I checked the menu and it says nothing about MSG at all. That sucks. Many of the Chinese places in the Bay Area seem to say explicitly that they do or do not use MSG. Not all of them, but way more than I'd have expected.
Grr. MSG Headache. Hopefully the ibuprofen kicks in soon...
