El Mirasol Restaurant Review: For nearly 30 years the Castaneda family has been playing host to the valley’s hungry visitors and residents. Patriarch and chef Felipe Castaneda draws on his upbringing in Tepechitlan, a small ranching town in Zacatecas, Mexico. The result is authentic fare prepared with thought and consistency. Favorites include chile verde, shrimp pipian, and pollo en mole poblano, the restaurant’s top-selling dish. We also recommend the traditional chicharron, or crispy pork rinds in a tomatillo sauce. Plenty of heart-healthy dishes are available, too, including some vegan options like the tasty spinach enchiladas. Ask about specials that aren’t on the regular menu. In particular, don’t miss the crab enchiladas if they’re on offer; they are subject to seasonal availability. Also located at 266 E. Via Altamira, Palm Springs, 760-459-3136.
