Opinions on samosas and spring rolls for party

  • 9

Hi,

I'm looking to serve veggie samosas and veggie spring rolls for about 15 folks. Any opinions on the best places to buy them? Swad and Curry in a Hurry are in the running for Samosas @ $1 if I buy 20. Not sure if each is equally tasty and substantial.

Thanh Nhi for veggie Spring Rolls? I'd like the 'fresh', non-fried variety.

Thank you,
Anj

  1. you could also call hot breads on mcneil and 183 for a larger samosa order price.

    1. There's also an Indian grocery store at Spicewood Springs and 183 (same shopping center as Asia Market and Chen's) that sells samosas at larger quantities (must be pre-ordered).

      1. Veggie Somosa from Bombay Express, very good stuff.

        1. Whole Foods downtown now makes pretty good veggie samosas daily. You can find them in the prepared foods section. I expect you could pre-order some.

          1. Thank you for the good input. I may go with SWAD due to location. Any opinion on the fresh veggie spring rolls between Tam Deli and Thanh Nhi (as they are also close by)?

            1. What about Tarka? Their samosas are delicious, especially with their tamarind sauce. Also, the best Indian food I've had in town comes from Asiana Indian at W. Cannon and 35. Their biz seems a bit slow so they might be down to do some trays for a good price.

                I don't like Tarka much. Bombay is much better.

              2. Did you find your spring rolls and samosas? I had catering from Curry in a Hurry done before and it was quite good. For samosa you may also want to check Sulekha.com for Austin and see if you can find an auntie who does catering out of her house for that.

                1. Thank you. I ended up with samosas from SWAD and they received good reviews from the attendees. Skipped spring rolls.
