combating food fatigueI've been in LA 2 1/2 years now and it would be crazy to think I've been to even a fraction of the restaurants in this town. but it seems like its the usual suspects over and over again and I'm starting to get a little bored. so this week has been a concerted effort in trying new places.
sat night (ok, technically sun morning) involved my first trip to BCD tofu house for lip searing soon tofu. despite the host's reluctance to seat us, claiming the kitchen was closed, as we pointed to the 24 hour sign and the other tables currently being served, we finally overcame our debilitating whiteness and convinced him to seat us as well. I think I may have found the perfect after-drinking antidote. last night involved a trip to the valley for fondue, chronicled by Jess. and tonight John and I have agreed to try a new place. inspired by a recent latimes article, and our love for all things japanese cuisine-related, we're venturing into either little tokyo for izakaya snacks at haru ulala, or to south la brea for 70s japanese movie posters and yakitori at sake house mori. and if work doesn't get in the way, a possible artisanal bread tasting - yes, you read that right - at breadbar with Jess this weekend.
so I think my meal malaise might be temporarily appeased.
