My taste buds have been all messed up of late because of some treatment, and my next treatment is going to completely wipe them out (for about 4 months). I am hoping that I get a little window between the two where my taste buds will hopefully pop back (at least partially) before they get wiped out again.
Spicy food is out, but I think that I would like some bold flavors. Chewy carbs - rice, bread, pasta... - are really bad tasting right now, so Chinese, Thai, and Italian are not top choices.
So, where should I go for something bold without being too spicy. Sashimi is going to be too subtle for me, and I can do a good enough steak at home that it will not be worth it to spend big bucks at a steak house.
I live in central OC, so anywhere is really within reach. I care more about the food than the decor.
As a semi-related question, what would you eat when you could not taste anything?
