Where do you get your Samosa fix?

Where do you get your favorite samosas?

Some requirements:

- Fried crust must be hot and flaky -- but not dripping with grease. In the best case, the samosa was fried fresh and served promptly. (Many places reheat or refry.)

- Filling must be chunks of potato, peas, spices and coriander -- not a slurry or gooey paste. The filling cannot contain carrots, turmeric, or all the other deviations from an authentic North Indian samosa.

- A rich and flavourful imli (tamarind) sauce must be present.

My personal favorite is Vik's Chaat house in Berkeley.

Any good samosa places in the South Bay?
