Spice master Baba Ji melds global cuisines in Cowboys and Turbans’ kitchen to season Mexican- and Indian-influenced street fare. Appetizers greet diners with pakoras packed with chicken or an earthy mix of potatoes and cauliflower, and tandoori chicken drumsticks beat taste buds with a flavorful melody of spices from their masala sauce. Bombay jumbo burritos wrap Indian-style proteins, such as lamb vindaloo and channa saag, in a grilled tortilla with chickpea strips, refreshing mint chutney, and traditional burrito vegetables. Vegetarians and vegans find 14 entrees that energize palettes with a meatless mix of tomatoes, lemon juice, turmeric, and a special house blend of spices in the karahi tofu. Cowboys and Turbans’ extensive outdoor patio and mix of savory meat dishes and roughage-centric recipes makes for well-rounded dinners for two and an agreeable date night for velociraptor-brontosaurus couples.
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.
