The "aunties" have 'retired', although some subset of them show up fairly regularly. You can tell whether they're in evidence by what degree of lascivious Bollywood drivel is playing. In fact even if one of them phones the store the volume on the drek gets turned down!
The infusion of new young blood is wonderful though, although I miss the "auties" a lot. What were formerly delicious samosas only available with a whisper and wink toward under the counter have actually now gotten even better -- they are now literally made to order. Only in India or my own kitchen have I tasted samosas so fresh!
Living near a restaurant that cooks jack fruit is really a lucky thing. And to think I was going to go today but got distracted....darn.
I think technically Bharat Bazaar is gone replaced by Samosa House. It's the same (extended) family running the place with the addition of the kitchen and tables to the food store.
I just drove by today, and nearly fainted with pleasure - being an Englishman in NY (whoops I'm a woman and in LA for over a decade) I've sought out Artesia, but my heart remains in Manchester, where I went to university, and the aray(sp!) of Hindu/Muslim delights there. Food is god for this chow..etc...I live a five minute drive from this place and want to know more, but as a somosa junkie, know that I shall be there the next morning. Thursday.
