MSG and Dim Sum

  • 1

A friend I invited to go to flushing for dim sum says he is allergic to msg. Does anyone know whether the dim sum served at Gum Fung, Gala Manor, etc contains this chemical?

  1. Yes, there is MSG in most, if not all, dim sum. If your friend is truly allergic I would avoid Chinese cuisine in general. Trust me, I grew up on the stuff.
