If there’s one thing that never fails to astound me, it’s the fact that a fried triangular parcel, filled with a spicy mixture of potatoes has the power to make me cry. And it’s not because of the spice but because of the fact that something so simple can taste oh-so-good. I know I am not alone in this because how can you not like samosa? Scratch that. How can you not love samosa? Luckily for me and my brethren, there’s no shortage of good samosa in the city. What’s more, is that there are multiple options and variations so you will never get bored. And my research led me to these places and I can say for a fact that they serve the best samosas in Mumbai

Ask anyone about where you get the best samosa and there’s a very high probability that they will direct you to Guru Kripa in Sion.
