Here’s a look at some of my favorite places to eat on the East Side of the Coachella Valley, which is closest to the Empire Polo Fields.
TKB BAKERY AND DELI
44911 Golf Center Parkway, Indio
This place has arguably the best sandwiches in all the Coachella Valley (which runs from Coachella to Palm Springs). Local boxing star Timothy Bradley sings its praises as his training gym is nearby.
They bake their own bread and have a wide array of meats, veggies and desserts.
TKB is also a highly honored restaurant on Yelp!
79-630 Highway 111, 103, La Quinta, CA
This place specializes in Pho, but if Stagecoach is typically hot, noodle soup might not sound as appealing.
But their cold noodle dishes, called Bun, are fantastic, with a citrus vinaigrette. I usually get No. 45, which is barbecue pork and egg rolls.
They also have salads, rice dishes, and a great array of Boba, Thai ice tea, coconut water and coffee.
