I'll be driving from LA to the Salton Sea in mid-December, and then camping/driving around there for about a week. I'm looking for delicious, inexpensive food in the surrounding areas, from Palm Springs to El Centro. Especially interested in tacos, birria, date shakes, any chinese... or, anything that might be tough to find on the East Coast.
I know some of these topics have been covered in other chowhound posts, but most are not up-to-date, so would love some current recommendations. Thanks!
