Like a tongue on a flagpole in February, fusion cuisine results from curiosity and a shortage of popsicles. Rein in restless taste buds with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of Mexican-Indian fusion fare and drinks from Cowboys & Turbans, located in Silver Lake.

Dubbed the spice master by the Los Angeles Times, chef and divine dining presence Baba Ji masterminds the unmatched menu, combining the authentic taste of Indian street food with the utilitarian brilliance of traditional tortillas. Entrees like the chicken saag ($13) or the veggie-laced saag tofu ($11) are served with basmati rice, and the maharaja pizza, which is served on tandoori-baked naan, puts barbecue chicken breast, pineapple, and cashew nuts atop a moderate mountain of mozzarella ($13). Bombay jumbo burritos like the fish masala burrito ($12) combine fresh Indian veggies with subtle spice syntheses that finally dispel taste buds’ repressed memories of grade-school lunches made of crayons and paste.

  • You wonder whether you should meditate or eat. Eating wins, because this is food you'll want to explore. – Barbara Hansen, LA Weekly

Cowboys and Turbans

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 antipodal parts of the globe with hearty samosas wrapped in flour tortillas instead of samosa dough, tacos filled with tandoori meats and chutneys, and pizzas made with a chewy tandoori naan crust. Towering doors of wood and iron lined with intricately carved columns reveal an open-air patio, which surrounds visitors with flickering torchlight and a canopy of multicolored cloth. Statues of animals and deities 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.

This is probably the best Indian food we've ever had. Creative and fresh in a funky atmosphere. We'll be going back.
