real chinese with no msg

apossibleworld | Sep 13, 2011 11:35 AM

I've loved exploring flushing, and south brooklyn areas, for real sichuan food and other regional varieties. I love spicy food and I love flavors that I've never had before. But lately I've had a real problem with MSG. It leaves me feeling hungover for 24 hours, not fun. Are there any restaurants that serve real chinese with no MSG, where you don't have to make a special request? Because of the language barrier, I'm not usually comfortable asking for food without it... plus if places rely on it to make their food tasty, what will the food be like without it? Any and all suggestions please! Manhattan ok too, even though this is the wrong board.
