Palm Springs and the Desert Resorts Restaurants


El Mirasol at Los Arboles

El Mirasol at Los Arboles Review

Chef Felipe Castañeda owns two Mexican restaurants in Palm Springs—this one, part of the Los Arboles Hotel, is outside on a charming patio set amid flower gardens and shaded by red umbrellas. Castañeda prepares classic combinations of tacos, tamales, and enchiladas, along with specialties such as double-cooked pork and pollo en pipián (chicken with a pre-Columbian sauce made of ground roasted pumpkin seeds and dry chilies). Vegetarian offerings include delicate spinach enchiladas and a fine chile relleno. Castañeda's more casual café, also called El Mirasol, is 2 miles south at 140 East Palm Canyon Drive.
