Baba Ji, the proprietor of Silverlake Juice and Tea, explores a new frontier in fusion with the food at Cowboys and Turbans—the tantalizing blend of South Asian, American, and Mexican cuisine. The menu unites distant parts of the globe with hearty samosas wrapped in whole wheat wrappings instead of samosa dough, tacos filled with tandoori meats and chutneys, and burgers made with Indian spices. Towering doors of wood and iron lined with intricately carved columns reveal an open-air patio, which surrounds visitors with hanging bulbs and a canopy of translucent cloth. Statues ring the courtyard, patiently waiting to ask if diners are going to finish their masala burgers, tandoori cornish hens, and aromatic vegetarian and seafood curries.
