  1. Hi,

    don't know what part of the City you live in but there is a small East Indian Store in a strip mall on Dixie Road, just north of Burnhamthorpe.

    The Samosas are 3 for $1.00 and if you go in the afternoon, they are usually still warm, and just delivered.

    Also, while you're in that mall, try Cora's for lunch - it's fantastic and only open til 3:00 p.m. - they just serve breakfast and lunch.

      Where do I find the best cheap samosas in the westend?


      1. re: ford

        This store is in East Mississauga!! just a few blocks outside of Etobicoke!!! Don't know where you are in the west end but if you drive, it's very handy.
        I live in westend Etobicoke and shop there all the time, it's only a 10 minute drive

        1. re: ford

          I think that samosas 3 for a buck are from a restaurant called Village of India.

            Where is it?


            1. re: coffeelover

              It is in Mississauga. I just searched for their address and found it:

              1011 Eglinton Avenue East - (905) 238-9219

              1. re: coffeelover

                It's in the stripmall at Eglington and Tomkin, Mississauga

        2. Embassy Samosa King in the east end, at Middlefield & Finch, the plaza with the Pizza Pizza.

          The Samosas go 5 for $1 + tax .. although I'm absolutely addicted to their mutton rolls (75 cents) -- so spicy, so muttony .. their vada are pretty good too, at 3 for $1 ..

            I would have to agree. The samosas at Samosa King are great & a deal-o-rama. My Indian parents trek out from mississauga to buy them from this place (they buy 50+ at a time...samosas freeze excellently for months).

            1. re: chica

              Also how long would you say they would be ok to keep before serving them if you didn't freeze them?

              1. re: chica

                a related thread with pics:

                I have kept mine for about 5 days without freezing it and they tasted fine. Though I am not at all sure about the health implications... 2 weeks later and I do not feel a thing, if that is any consolation.

              2. re: moo

                Is it worth the drive from etobicoke?

                1. re: MissDarling

                  We have tons of choices in Etobicoke. At Rexdale and Kipling, there is Rexdale sweets. They have good samosas, 3 for $1.00. Ask them to mix the two types of chutney (red and green).

                  On airport Road, there is a strip mall with Sweet India. They have good samosas too, as do Asian Sweets in the same plaza.

                  At Albion and Islington, there's a grocery store/butcher with a hot foods counter. They have good veggie samosas for 3 for $1.00 and meat samosas for 2 for $1.00.

                  My favourite is the one located at rexdale and kipling.

              3. Thought no-one would ever ask!!! Several points to make, so first Samosas are 1 choice ---- potato, spicy only and 4 for $1, sadly the only flavour!!! Location is on Albion Road, one set of lights west of Hwy. 27, AT THE BACK of Unit 7!!! You also get a Slightly spicy, but sweet Tamarind sauce and/or a green chile/coriander sauce! Mostly, they make a wide variety of Indian sweets here, which you can ask for a variety!!! Indulge in the not connected, superb restaurant with specialty dishes or lunch buffet at Exotic Indian Cuisine, top notch, a ok, supurb!!!!!!!!!!!!

                  Exotic Indian is great but Chef of India at Eglinton and Yonge is better. Been to both many times.

                  If the samosas are the ones my wife brings home from work (Judging by the description of the place it is), they're fantastic.

                  I still like Sultan of Samosas better though.

                  Middlefield & Finch in Scarborough 5 fo $1

                  1. Looking for cheap samosas in Little India. My usual place is Mistaan in North York but I need to go to a place that is closer to the event that I am attending.

                      B&J Supermarket on Gerrard at Ashdale has decent samosas... 3/$1. Also, any of the street vendors have smaller, fresher ones, 2/$1

                        Thanks again. This is what I picked up for today's picnic and they were gone in 10 minutes.

                        I will certainly purchase from B&J again. They were delicious.

                          Oh my - in the Indian Bazaar you must go to Surati Sweet Mart and try their huge, delicious potato samosas. The best in the neighbourhood.
