What happens when you blend Indian spices and flavors with Mexican street cuisine? Diners can taste the results at the newly opened Cowboys & Turbans in Silver Lake. This offshoot of the Cowboys & Turbans found next to the El Rey Theater is located in the former Sunset Boulevard storefront that once housed Andiamo, a short-lived Italian restaurant. Restaurant owner Baba Ji has painted the interior a shade of cinammon, filled it with dark-wood tables and chairs and turned down the lights. Menu items include Tikka Masala and a Tandoori quesadilla. Why meld Mexican and Indian food?
