In a restaurant if I'm eating something that has soy sauce in it I don't tend to add more - but that's more of a taste preference than being worried about tyramine.

There are a couple of chinese restaurants that I have gone to with no problems. I am pretty adamant about telling them to use less sauce when preparing the dish. The food has just a slight "glistening" on it. Of course I add no extra soy sauce to it. I don't want to give anyone the impression that this would always be safe for everyone- just my experience. I might add that I'm taking 60mg Nardil, so it's not an extra high dose.

I don't notice a great deal of taste difference either. I suppose you could also add non soy based sauces also (I like chile sauce :)}
