Maybe it's the change in weather, with the turn towards fall, but I seem to have been low in motivation this week. That included both motivation to cook or bake and (as a direct result) motivation to blog. We survived on the bare minimum for dinners this week...usually a salad and something out of the freezer that required very little time. One day it was lamb sausages, one day spanakopita...and one day it was take-out samosas.
I've been getting take-out samosas from Punjab Sweets on 34 Ave for the last few years and they never disappoint. I always go for the vegetarian ones, stuffed with potato, peas and a great mix of spices. The outsides are crispy and tasty and they always include a little container of sweet & spicy dipping sauce. The size is generous and the best part is they are only $0.50 each! I usually pick up a dozen and warm up the leftovers in the oven to keep them nice and crispy.
I can't comment too much on the rest of the food from Punjab Sweets...I tried their buffet once a few years ago. I remember the food being average and the price was reasonable (they serve their tasty samosas in the buffet too). I've tried a few of the sweets too (burfi and galub jamun) and they hit the spot if I've got a sweet tooth. Punjab Sweets doesn't look like much from the outside. It's tucked between two car repair/dealerships and looks like it might be in an old fast-food building. It's easy to miss, but worth looking for the next time you're craving samosas.
