Any Great restaurants on the way to Palm Springs?

i'm driving to Palm Springs tomorrow night from LA. Any Great restaurants on the way? I never make it to San Gabriel Valley or East LA or east of that or etc etc...

I like ETHNIC food, things that are clean and made from fresh ingredients. Love Chinese but not really looking for the heavy saucy stuff. Mexican etc. Looking for somethign special you can't find an equal to in LA.

Something similar to Katsu-ya, but on the west side?

while not entirely on the westside...the katsuya isakaya on third street is a great bet. it's across from sushi roku and exactly the same style at katsuya except with beer drinking dishes.

Best Puerto Rican Resturant in LA????

La cochinita on Sunset in silverlake (where the baskin robbins is) its cuban food. but great rice and beans as well as awesome plaintains.

it reminds me of the puerto rican diners in nyc.

Japanese Style Soft Serve Ice Cream In LA?

Okay this is so far from what you are talking about... but try the frozen custard at Lucky Devils burger joint in Hollywood. it's soft serve its delish!

Italian on the west side

My mom is coming to town from New York and staying in Santa Monica. I'm looking for a good italian restaurant that is unpretentious...something like La buca on Melrose.

Any thoughts for BH, Brentwood, Culver City, westwood, Santa Monica?
