DO YOU USE MSG IN YOUR FOOD?
We don't use MSG but if you're concerned about it, please allow us to help! Linked below is an article from CNN.com that details why MSG is perfectly fine. Also linked below is an article published in 1986 from the journal, "Food and Chemical Toxicology," stating that after ten years of research, results had "failed to reveal any objective sign" that MSG was dangerous, and that the concept of "Chinese restaurant syndrome" is baseless. "Chinese Restaurant Syndrome" and concerns about MSG are actually rooted in racist myth.
Anthony Bourdain said it very well so I'll quote him here:
"You know what causes Chinese restaurant syndrome? Racism. 'Ooh I have a headache; it must have been the Chinese guy.'"
HOW DO YOU PRONOUNCE THE CHINESE WORD, "JIAOZI"?
The word is said with a dip in the middle and a little stinger on the end. Written in Pinyin, it would be, "jiǎozi" to show where to lower the tone of your voice in the middle of the word. JI - like pronouncing the letter "g" AO - like an exclamation of pain "ow!" ZI - like the sound a cartoon bee might make when it stings. The "i" on the end of the word is almost silent. Now say it out loud. GEE-OW-ZZ. Jiǎozi 饺子.
WHAT IF I PRONOUNCE THE CHINESE WORD, "JIAOZI" LIKE IT'S IT'S THE EVOLVED VERSION OF THE POKEMON, DROWZEE?
Please see above.
