Samosa King - holy cow!

Nyleve | Nov 24, 2006 01:08 AM

Stocking up for an upcoming week feeding my son's film crew (12 to 18 vacuum cleaners, 3-meals a day) I decided to stop at Samosa King to pick up a bunch of samosas (would make a good lunch with soup or something). I was absolutely overwhelmed. The place is like a museum of Indian sweets and snacks - such beautifully displayed things! So many things I couldn't identify! It was wonderful. I bought 60 samosas (at 5 for a dollar) and meanwhile picked up some chana dahl and a few other things to eat for dinner tonight. Almost everything was delicious. I wasn't so crazy about the chicken biryani - the rice was ok, but there wasn't much chicken and I found the hard boiled egg strange. I also didn't love the - gah I don't know what it's called but it was a disk-shaped thing that resembled a falafel but lumpier. I found it a bit dry. The chana was excellent. And I tried some highly addictive batter-fried chilies.

I am so glad I finally checked this place out after hearing about it for so long.
