Hidden little samosa place - Edit

This place isn't easy to find: At Sukra Path (off New Road) look for the Silver Palace jeweller, opposite the Bishal Bazar shopping mall. On the right there is a very narrow alleyway that looks more like the entrance to "Avis Tailors" (sign above). At the end of the short alleyway is a little courtyard - where the famous tip top samosas are prepared. But go inside first to the cash counter, it's self service. Pay first, then take your receipt either outside for samosa, to the sweets counter (also for Dhokla, very delicious here) or to the room to the right for Chole Bhatura, Puri or Chat. It's usually very crowded, as this place is very popular with locals. They mainly come here for samosas. Hardly any place to sit down. But great snacks and sweets, and very affordable. I love their Dhokla (it's a Gujarati breakfast dish, made of rice and chickpeas, fermented, steamed and spiced). And the samosas :-)
This place started as a little tea shop, and as people wanted to have some snack to go with the chiya samosas were prepared too - which became rather famous quickly, called tiptopko samosa. Several of my Nepali friends state that these are Kathmandu's best samosas. In the meantime there are several outlets, in Lagankhel, Maharajgunj and Thahity.

Pros: Tiptopko samosa!
