hello dear
intermittent colicky pain most commonly could be due to ureteric colic or intestianal. since it is related to food , it could be because of intestinal. may be appendicitis. hence you are adviced to under go ultrasound abdomen. it will clarify appendicitis and stones in urinary tract. if report goes in favour of appendicitis you may need to under go laparscopic appendicectomy.
take care

General Surgeon Dr. Inderjeet Yadav's  Response
you should get ultrasonography of abdomen during attack of pain and also get serum amylase at same time. If it does not show any anomaly then you should go for CT enterography or barium study.
Possibility of small bowel disease or pancreaticobiiary disease should be ruled out in your case first.
