MSG

That most delicious and most mis-understood foodstuff in the whole wide world

Science has still not found a convincing explanation for CRS (Chinese Restaurant Syndrome) : indeed, some researchers suggest it may well be to do with the other things diners have imbibed there - peanuts, shellfish, large amounts of lager. Others say that fear of MSG is a form of mass psychosis - you suffer the symptoms you've been told to worry about.

Where does it state in the article MSG is used?

This sort of mass consumption event should be illegal.

Umami is associated with MSG.

"Glutamate is nothing to be feared in the least. Also known as “glutamic acid” it’s one of the most common amino acids in our bodies and essential for vital body functions. Indeed, the GI tract, where much of our bodies’ immune systems are located, is absolutely loaded with glutamate. Glutamate even has an active role in our immune system. There is far more glutamate in your body at this moment than you’d ever get from eating MSG in your food. That’s because your body can make its own glutamate."

My personal concern would be the calories. 1 gyoza is about 50-80 calories. 10 would be 500-800.

10 would be my limit if I also skipped lunch or dinner. My favorite are lamb gyoza.

I love gyoza, but this event is in Osaka, so a bit far. Also, I can't eat big portions anymore, so "all-you-can-eat" is not for me. Finally, gyoza means beer, who drinks lemon sours with that??

Btw, if you ever visit Xi'an in central China, that's the land of gyoza, they have some great restaurants serving hundreds of types of gyoza.

"Dumplings" the photo doesn't show dumplings! Dumplings are a stodgy lump of flour and suet mum used to pad out a stew!
