I’ve got to control my rant so I will use the smallest amount of words and try to get to the point…
Ordered Crispy Chicken in Plumb sauce. The restaurant (at the truck stop) doesn’t even serve fish or seafood. Language problem No: Wife explained in Chinese and Taiwanese about my allergy and consequences. No Seaweed, Seafood, Fish or any of the common sauces that contain fish. All bases covered.
The meal was cooked and served. I asked the counter girl again. She did the "Do Mei You! and I looked deeply into her eyes for a hint of sincerity.
The seaweed dish on my plate should have foreshadowed what was to come. But, I have had plum chicken before and I tried to take comfort in the fact that she asked the cook.
I have a delayed yet then very severe reaction to seafood. No early warning system. I consumed the meal and it was good. Then about thirty minutes later… I can feel post nasal drip starting and knew that I would be in big trouble in about an hour… …
Got to the the emergency room in good time but it took two emergency treatments to stabilize me and I felt shitty the rest of the week.
What’s with these people. This is not the first time. But it will definitely be the last. I’m going totally veg except for McDonald’s, which has a strict separation policy, or 7-11 hotdogs, tea eggs or hot spring eggs. Everything else is off limits…
My Taiwanese friend said that they don’t lie. They just don’t understand the importance. On side of me says… OK… they are nice people… But the other side of me says “SHIT ON THAT!”
Even in Taipei 101, I had a meal, the meal was ok. They swore the soup did not contain any shrimp or seafood. I had the soup. I discovered little micro shrimp in it.
I ordered turkey rice. They said there was no fish in it. It was Turkey rice. There was shrimp in it. I don’t really get it. How can I understand what goes through these people’s head. Are they nice caring people. Yes, I see it. But then I see this side and I have a total disconnect… My logic circuits are exploding.
