Samosa House



I was fortunate to be invited to the Health Freedom Expo in Long Beach two Saturdays ago, where I checked out products both bizarre and interesting, and chatted with volunteers from Animal Acres. John Robbins was supposed to speak, but had to bow out due to a death in the family, so the two of us vegans were pretty bummed to have missed him.

In another stroke of luck, though, Samosa House had a booth set up with delicious vegan options for our lunch. We shared the jackfruit, dal, rice, and samosa pictured above. Regardless of how un-photogenic our meal was, each dish had the perfect texture and amount of spice. I'm so happy I was finally able to try their food, since I'd heard so much about it from other L.A. vegans. I just might have to check out their storefront next time I'm in the area.

Would love to hear about some of the more bizarre products! ;)

Haven't tried jackfruit, but it's definitely on my list.

The name of the place alone sounds delicious! Gosh, you have so many great options for eating out where you live, I'm jealous.

How fun! You're always doing the coolest things and going to the most awesome places. Sorry you missed John Robbins! :-(

You have all the good restaurants in L.A! It looks like Samosa House might be well worth the trip there. Jackfruit is one of those things I've always wanted to try but never have. What am I waiting for?

Thanks :) No help required...just come to our exciting house warming party when it inevitably happens.

I bought the tofu at the santa monica co-op or whole foods...I can't remember which. It'd been sitting in my fridge for a while, but those are really the only two places I shop.

And I love me some Samosa House spicy goodness. So cheap. So delicious.

Sorry about Robbins, but it sounds like a cool "sortie", et puis ton "assiette" à l'air délicieux!
