The Best Samosa in Toronto

The best samosa in Toronto tops the list of snacks that are quick, cheap, and perfectly satisfying. Plus, these crispy, veggie- and meat-stuffed pockets are made even better with the tamarind and green chutneys that they usually come with.

Here's the best samosa in Toronto.
