Anybody been here in Calgary
Anybody been to the Samosa Factory?
135-55 Westwinds Crescent NE
Calgary, AB T3J 5H2, Canada
Looking for samosas. So far the only onles I really like are Bombay Sweet House.
Long time lurker - first post
They are open now - despite cardboard boxes in the window. Hours 11:00AM to 7:00PM daily except Monday. The samosas are made on site as the name factory implies. They sell frozen or deep fried ( takes about 5 minutes). I haven't tried them - was in a hurry.
My cousin actually opened The Samosa Factory on Jan 1/09 so they are open. I will let her know about the cardboard in the windows. I just wanted to let you guys know that it is open and I am getting a price and hours list from her today, which I will post on the site. I believe they are in the process of making a website as well, but I dont thing it is up yet.
Alright, here is the Price List and hours!
Open Tuesday through Sunday 11 AM- 7 PM Closed on Mondays
They serve Vegetable, Beef and Chicken Samosa's in 3 different sizes (mini (coctail size), medium and large)
The machines they have can make up to 6000 Samosa's per hour so they should have a good supply.
Vegetable- $10 gets you 40 Mini's, 20 Mediums or 16 Large Samosa's.
Beef- $15 gets you 40 Minis, 20 Mediums or 16 Large Samosa's
Chicken (The Tandoori Sizzler)- $10 for 25 Mini Samosa's (only size available)
They also provide a Tamarind sauce or Green Mint Chutney with each order, and sell Chole (Chick Pea Curry) for $3.50/lb.
They are pretty busy already, and your best bet is to call in advance (15 mins) so you dont have to wait.
The Store Phone number is 403-568-1447.
Hope this helps.
I was fake-reading the Canadian Pakistani newspaper while waiting for my order at Ali Baba the other day- the only thing not in Urdu in the paper is a huge number of colourful resto ads (and other businesses but mostly food- and Calgary is well represented) and I noted the ad for Samosa Factory there. It just had prices for the veggie so thanks for the complete price list.
I picked up some veggies samosas recently, and they were very good. Fried to order, and the filling had nice heat and spicing. In the past I tried the chole [chick pea curry], but found it a bit too salty for my taste.
There is a new Bangladeshi market called Shewdesi Bazaar next door to the Samosa Factory that has a butcher, spices, pulses, and lots of freezers with various meats and fish. It is worth checking out next time you are getting samosas next door.
Their website is shewdesibazaar.ca, but it is pretty rudimentary.
