I made it to Palm Springs in about four hours. I checked in and then headed out for lunch. I did my homework but it didn't pay off. I found an area that had a few restaurants at which I was certain I would be able to eat well. The map said they were about 20 minutes from the hotel, but I was about 15 minutes out and wasn't even halfway there, so I turned around and went to a small Mexican restaurant that I had noticed. It appeared to have a crowd, usually a good sign.
When I got my menu, I became nervous that I was going to have to go elsewhere. I asked about the chips (they looked awesome, kind of puffy) but they were contaminated, so he took them back and left the salsa for me. I ordered the only thing I could: chicken tacos, rice and beans, no cheese on the tacos or beans. I was going to order guacamole but he told me they put sour cream in their guacamole. Who does that? Grr. I used the salsa on my tacos and ate as much as I could, the meal was so good. Or I was so hungry. Maybe both.
