MSG Coma at Momofuku Noodle Bar

After hearing wonderful things, I finally got around to checking out Momofuku Noodle Bar. I started with several small plates, including the wonderful pork belly buns, all of which I much enjoyed. My much anticpated ramen was yum up until I was in the middle of it when I got hit by an MSG-induced wave of dizziness and mild nausea. It was terribly disappointing - I don't expect to experience that for $16 noodles, the cost of which is supposedly justified by the intense preparation of the stock and quality of the ingredients....
