During the holiday break my wife, son, and I made a quick little visit to Palm Springs and I would be remiss as a food blogger in not chronically the culinary aspects of the journey. Foodwise, as in many other ways, this little desert oasis is a bit of a throwback.
The view from our hotel restaurant, which given the gorgeous 78 degree clear December weather was pretty darn fine.
Veggie burger with fries. Apparently, this was a very good example of the beast. The fries sure were good.
Cobb salad (I left out the tomatoes). I’ve had a lot of cobb salads. This was a 6/10 as they go.
At breakfast, French toast with creme anglais and apple soaked in calvados. This isn’t the prettiest dish but it sure tasted great. The creme was superb and the apples lent some addition cinnamony sweetness to the mix.
And my scramble, with ham, bacon, caramelized onions, and goat cheese. Again, not a looker, but it tasted good.
As hotel restaurants go the Colony Palms one was solid. The food was tasty and the setting nice. It wasn’t anything to completely rave about, but on average at hotels you can do far far worse.
