On Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., groups of 20–30 students kick off classes with a shot of wheat grass before learning the secret to making signature juices. After another shot of ginger, they craft a 16-ounce Baba Ji, which blends ginger, cucumber, lemon, and dandelion. Student supplement juices with shots of E3Live, a super-food alga containing more than 64 nutrients harvested from Klamath Lake, Oregon. Classes end with a health-oriented raw lunch of two salads—one made with kale and another made with daikon and lemon juice.<p>
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.
