We are going to Palm Springs for a few days and will be going from the West Hollywood area pretty much across the I-10. We hardly ever get East and thought we would have lunch on the way there and then again on the way back. I keep hearing there is great Chinese and Mexican that we are missing out on. J. Gold seems to list a bunch of noddle places like Din Tai and 101, Kingburg Kitchen, Mei Long Village, JTYH Restaurant that all seem interesting but not sure yet how big a detour they are. I am having more trouble with Mexican, so would love more suggestions there especially.
We are also open to other cuisines-we just want to kind of make a foodie ramble out of the trip-so things don't have to be right off the freeway-just kind of the "general right direction".
