Alewife T snacks - Samosas, Dosa

fredid | Mar 14, 2009 02:00 PM

The snack stand at the Alewife T (right in the station) has some samosas (peas and potato, lamb) that the woman there says come from the Bollywood Cafe in Arlington (?), as well as a masala dosa, and masala chaat.

I enjoyed the dosa with it's side of spicy coconut chutney - but I was glad I had a fork with me, as it fell apart into small pieces. The potato and pea samosa was less successful, the skin was tough from sitting out, and the filling bland - fine if you're hungry but otherwise not worth it.
