This is a very random post, I know. But my stomach always hurts like crazy within 10 min of eating at Mongolian BBQ. I’m pretty sure it has something to do with the oil they spray on the grill. In college, same thing. It got to the point where I couldn’t eat any prepared foods in the cafeterias because whatever they used to cook with caused the same problem. Ugh.
Anyone else have issues?

Your stomach just might be super sensitive to certain ingredients or oils, yes it is possible.

I just always wonder what kind of oil it is they’re using though, because I never have any issues when I use like olive or vegetable oil at home. Sucks though. We just went out for my mom’s birthday at Mongolian and I am not feeling so hot now :/

I *love* Indian food but often feel really sick afterwards – I’ve been told it’s likely to be the ghee they use very freely (plus no doubt all the full cream yoghurts, cheese etc – which I wouldn’t normally eat). At home I usually just use olive oil and don’t have the same problem at all. Sucks though, I feel your pain!

If I overindulge in any sort of greasy, oily, fried food, it does a number on my stomach. Like Iceprincess said, you may just have a sensitive stocmach. Especially since when you cook, you’re controlling the amount and quality of oil, and when you get it out they may be using a lot and not very good quality. Feel better!

Well.. this might be a longshot but my SO and his mom found out this year that they are allergic to corn. If they spray the grill with vegetable oils that may be a possibility.

Yep some oils can upset your stomach! especially large quantities of it. Mongolian bbq is definitely greasy. too much grease (fast food anyone?!) makes me really sick

I have a friend who was allergic to soy, so couldn’t eat anything that had soybean oil (which includes vegetable oil, so basically she couldn’t eat out ever).

I can eat foods that have been deep fried, but anything that has been cooked on a grill (mostly burgers) make me quesy after I’ve eaten them. I’m sure if it’s the amount of oil or what, but I am not a fan! Guess I’ll just stick with chicken nuggets 🙂

Any greasy food makes me very sick. Usually a big helping of Indian or Thai food will do it too.

It doesn’t happen to me, but it does happen to my Fiance. He always gets an upset stomach when he eats at the work cafeteria. He figures its the oil b/c it happens with any type of food.

It may be a certain type of oil or how much is on there. 2 years ago, I had my wisdom teeth removed & ever since then, popcorn with butter (at the movies) hurts my tummy. Their popcorn is fine, but when they add their butter, that’s what gets me. No idea why, but ever since then, my stomach has been sensitive to some greasy things. Sometimes, fast food will do the same, but not always. I think it just depends on how much grease is used, if its too much, I’m not a happy person. What helps me is Gavisgon (its like intense tums). You can get it at walmart or safeway.

This might sound weird but I don’t do well with animal fats.
I thought for a long time I was sensitive to milk but I can down several glasses of skim milk and feel nothing whereas 2% I can’t have more than a glass of without having stomach pains.

I am very sensitive to oily food from restaurants and some salads (I think if they’re not washed right?). I went to a gastroenterologist because of this too had a colonoscopy (sorry…tmi) and everything was normal. I started taking Miralax once a day and it doesn’t hurt as much as it used to at all. Weird solution…but it helps me!
