A religious experience at Indian Oasis - raining fire, MSG, and brimstone

Wallace Stevens | Dec 29, 2004 02:31 PM

So continuing the conversation from a few weeks back, my friends ventured out to the fabulous but complicated Indian Oasis last night.

One went with me before; the other was his girlfriend, who had never been there.

The food, again, was fantastic- the Drums of Heaven was again a big winner, as was the Masaman curry.

But the MSG attack, this time on Molly, was similarly powerful.

As she put it, "It was like God going down my throat and then the devil trying to fight his way back out."

Ok, so maybe she didn't say that. But she had never reacted to MSG before, and it came as a bit of a shock.

I'll repost a discussion on MSG reactions on the general topics board if anyone's interested in talking about it.

Full disclosure: I kind of like MSG, even if it hurts sometimes.
