This is the word from a hot chinee thing i know.
wow tht is a good price. :eek: The best price around here is 4 for a loonie and even then most raised the prices to 3 for a loonie.

how big are the samosas anyways. the ones around here are a good size of a small fist, or a tennis ball size.

Ok what's the difference between Embassy and A1 sweets?

I did have good samosa from that plaza but I forgot which store I bought it from.

BTW samosas are that cheap. For some reason some places like to sell them for 60 cents each (talking about the small ones).

This place at mc cowan and sheppard is decent but the shell is way too bready. I think they are about 80 cents each but they give you dipping sauce.

IMO, that's the best place to get samosas in Toronto. Or at least Scarborough. It's cheap and they taste awesome.

I know fancy places offer that green stuff and sweet sauce for your samosas. I've never inquired into whether Embassy has them but it really adds flavour to your samosas. If you know what i'm talking about. I don't really know what the green stuff and the red/sweet sauce is called.

Jamaican ones are usually called Jamaican Patties.
I've never had one before, I've seen people eating and at stores, aren't they usually yellow.

Albion/Islington has some good ones too. There's a few places on the NW corner just north of the Royal Bank. There's one thats my absolute fave though because his samosas don't have all crazy kinds of masala (spices) in them. Plus his Imlee chutney (Tamarind dipping sauce) is awesome.

I don't remember the restaurant's name, it's beside Chicken Cabana...and last I remember he sold them 4/$1. They're made a bit different because I think he uses a machine press to mold them instead of the traditional hand folding way.
