Where do you go to rejuvenate your taste buds?

Lately, I'm feeling burned-out by the restaurants I frequent. From the high end to the low end, nothing strikes me as mouth-watering or elicits a hearty growl of desire from my stomach. It could be I need to try new things, or I just need to mix it up. Where do you go when your taste buds need to rejuvenate?

    I think Sushi Zo rejuvenated my taste buds. Their omakase was full of flavors that refreshed the palette. The yuzu juice at the end adds a nice touch.

    I also think the fig, tomato and cheese sandwich at Surfas mixes it up a bit for a nice lunch.

      Depending on what part of LA you are in, but frequently I head for the 626 area code and find either a Sichuan or Hunan restaurant and that really awakens all kinds of tastebuds, and then of course numbs them for the next two days, but in a good way.

        I eat at home, after going to a farmers' market for inspiration.

          Ditto that sentiment.

          I usually stay home and go basic and simple.

          White rice and fried egg.

          Cold noodles with sesame paste.

          Noodles in chicken broth with tofu.

          PB&J

          Toast with good jam.

          etc.
