Thats often what puts me off new pho places - the msg random factor. How does it get you? I get this weird sensation all over my scalp and right down my spine... isn't banned in most countries??

no, it's a great product, infact like america's corn syrup it is one of the world power that is dominating food tasting worldwide.

This post made me go read up on MSG; turns out it's been deemed "harmless" by most American food monitoring agencies (whatever that's worth), but there's a lot of controversy over its effects. It makes you feel fuller and raises insulin levels. And, no Matt, it's not banned; in fact most processed foods, in the states at least, use MSG to provide a "meatier" taste. Still scares me for some reason.

I'm not sure I want to weigh in to any debate over MSG. It's a controversial one. It's much maligned and gets the blame for lots of the physiological reactions that people have. I'm told that MSG is often not to blame, that it's a combination of what was eaten, if alcohol was consumed and so on. I never hear of Hanoians complaining about it. Jury is still out for me!

Hey Sticky, just wanted to say thanks for the fantastic blog. Found it about 6 mths ago and the food! oh man the food in it was a major deciding factor in getting me to Hanoi for a week's holiday/continuous meal. Leaving on Sunday but nearly everyday has gone: wake up. Rummage through blog till hungry. Pick food/place that appeals and hightail it there. Course that hasn't stopped me from getting diverted into second breakfasts/third lunches from food I've found mid-wander but that's Hanoi. Mate....GREAT blog.

Sticky

RRO - Glad you found the blog useful. Hope I didn't give you any bumsteers!
