China Emergency Call # And MSG

Jump to last reply

Although I don't wish anyone to encounter emergency problems in China, please note the phone number to call is 110. I haven't used it myself but heard that if the operator doesn't understand you, they will switch you to an english speaking person.

Chinese food typically use MSG and chicken essence (not natural) to enhance the flavors, for some people it can cause allergies or serious reactions requiring immediate medical attention. The following is "I can't eat food with MSG and chicken essence in it" in Chinese, my friend who is traveling in China now made it into business card size and carries it in her purse. No guarantees that the eateries will follow the instruction.
