Samosa House East
10700 Washington Blvd
Culver City, CA 90232
I made plans with some friends, I haven't seen in a long time, for dinner. While we were deciding where to go, I suggested Samosa House and Bharat Bazaar I was shocked when my friend asked, "Which one?" I had no idea Samosa House East opened! I understand Samosa House East has been open for about three years.
There is a steam table, a few tables inside and more tables outside. It's a bright airy space at a very busy corner in Culver City.
Sambhar- Lentils and vegetable soup-pictured next to the rice. I got this instead of the raita. I loved this soup. I would order this anytime. Very well seasoned, not too spicy and balanced. The lentils were cooked perfectly!
Jackfruit Curry-on the left-this was different. I looks like pork but is jack fruit. Had some flavor but I wasn't too impressed with it.
Dal-lentils with some carrots. Somosa House does lentils very well. The lentils were well cooked and flavorful. Pretty spicy, more so than the soup. But a very good dish.
Chana Masala-garbonzo beans- Very well cooked and seasoned. I enjoyed the flavor and soft texture of this dish.
Service is good. The guy who helped me was friendly and helpful.
I liked Samosa House East and would come back for the entrees if I was in the area. Maybe the next time I go, I'll order the combo plate at Samosa House and Bharat Bazaar and some somosa here!
