This dessert was grocery store quality. Ugh, especially disappointing because I love good tiramisu.

Black mussels – Lulu California Bistro

Black mussels - Lulu California Bistro
In white wine sauce with herbs and cheesy baguette. Happy hour $8.99
Lulu California Bistro, Palm Springs CA

The mussels were overcooked and tough to chew. Their flesh were also super small compared to their large shells – that’s always a bad sign… It’s hard to forgive poor quality and bad preparation when it comes to mussels.

Skinny margarita – Lulu California Bistro

Skinny margarita - Lulu California Bistro

1800 Silver tequila, agave nectar and fresh lime juice. $5.99
Lulu California Bistro, Palm Springs CA

Not quite sure what made this margarita “skinny”, but it tasted pretty good! Perhaps it’s because they didn’t use any sugary margarita mix. They serve it in a huge glass so I’m sure the large quantity negates any “skinny” promises.

Chicken lettuce wraps – Lulu California Bistro

Chicken lettuce wraps - Lulu California Bistro
Minced chicken, water chestnut, crispy noodles, and sprouts served with lettuce wraps. Happy hour $7.49
Lulu California Bistro, Palm Springs CA

This wasn’t the best chicken lettuce wrap I’ve ever had. In fact, it was just marginal. But the price was great and the fun, hip atmosphere at Lulu helps to make up for the mediocre food.
