Eat On Samosa

June10

We do not venture south on Pembina Hwy. very often and do not savour the complex tastes of Indian food frequently either, so this visit was unique on both accounts.  Our eldest daughter picked the Eat On Samoa (109-2800 Pembina Hwy.) for us.  She is an adventurous eater, as are all of our kids-what a blessing.  When we arrived, the little place was full but there was a large table right in a bright and sunny window, that seemed to be waiting for us.

Orders are placed at a quick-serve counter and we decided to try four varieties of somosas between the three of us.  The lovely lady behind the counter (we found out subsequently that she was the owner Manika Pradhan) encouraged us to select a half dozen instead.  She helpfully suggested, that the cost was lower and that there was no tax assessed when purchased in this manner.  So we chose two chicken, one vegetable, two beef and one bison samosa.  Upon tasting each, we decided that enjoying three out four varieties was a good thing.  We did not care for the gamey taste of the bison-not a criticism, just a preference.

Next up, we shared two butter chicken platters for the three of us and it was more than enough food.  We enjoyed the chick peas and mixed vegetables as much as the chicken itself.    Our palettes are not discerning enough to know if the curries were the same on both the veggies and the beans.  We didn’t mind, as both were delicious.

The butter chicken was perfection.  The chicken was still moist and tender, just like “butter”.  This is how the recipe got its name, as you may already know.  We enjoyed the extra tomato-based sauce on the jasmine rice and lopped up every droplet.

There are Dine –in, take out and catering menus available.  Be mindful of a slightly elevated lip at entrance; otherwise the restaurant is weheelchair accessible.  There is plenty of surface parking available.  Fort Richmond is fortunate to have this convenient place in their neighbourhood for eat in dining, take out and catering.

Love-that is all.
