Samosas and Indian Store near Burlington?

  • b

My family just moved to Beautiful Burlington and we are counting on fellow Chowhounds to lead the way...
We are looking for the best Samosa take-out in either the Burlington or Oakville area.
We could also use some help locating an Indian store to source spices, etc.

  1. Make a morning of it and go the Hamilton Farmers Market. They have an excellent Indian stand on the bottom level with Samosas, Chutneys, Curries, Breads and Spices. A second Indian stall is recently selling but his stuff doesn't look as fresh and his selection is limited. The Samosas are great and cheap at the vendor on the south wall, his homemade chutneys are a little pricey though but tasty. There is also a great African and Eastern Spice lady at the bottom of the ramp and an Asian - Indian Spice and condoment stall at the back of the bottom floor near the Indian stall. It's a great market but only open Tues, Thurs, Fridays and Saturdays I believe.

      1. Welcome to Burlington! I travel to Oakville frequently to shop at the Organic Garage, and in the same plaza, is a terrific Indian Grocer for cooking supplies as well as samosas, pakoras, etc. I'm sorry that I can't recall the name, but it's easy enough to find a couple of doors down from Organic Garage.

          It used to be called Golden Groceries, now something else but I believe it is the same owners. I started going there 20 years ago when I worked at Alternatives Natural Foods- now Organic Garage.
          The samosas are some of the best I've had, and a bargain at around 45 cents each. A bit greasy, but then aren't they supposed to be? I stop there and get a dozen every time I'm in Oakville.
