Cheap Eats near the Salton Sea (Palm Springs to El Centro)
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!
Try a fish taco at Fisherman's Market in Palm Springs (there are a couple of other locations). Make sure you get the Baja style, which are fried. Good stuff!
So many ..... In PS -- JJ's Latino - Tyler's Burgers - Shanghai Red's Oyster Bar - Amigo Room (at the Ace Hotel) - Thai Smile - Peabody's - Guacamole's.... Because you're camping, don't forget about the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings (Camelot Theatre parking lot) all kinds of fresh produce/cheese/dates etc.
