Top 5 Samosas in Mississauga
These are some samosa places in Mississauga where they are not just the side dish at an Indian restaurant, but the main event. Samosas are good for so many occasions. They are a great party food, a great snack for lunch meetings and, to be honest, can be the cheapest lunch you can ever buy and be completely stuffed for $1. Mississauga has some samosa gems; you just have to look harder as some of them are deep in industrial plazas.
Here are the top 5 places to get samosas in Mississauga:
5 - Gazebo
Located in a plaza you had no idea existed unless you live around Mississauga Valley Blvd is a place called Gazebo. This place has been around for a year. The owner was super nice and excited to serve us. The samosas are absolutely delicious, very flavourful and perfectly fried. As you can see in the photo, they were overly stuffed with the right amount of spice to make me want three more. They only serve veggie samosas, but I would rather have a good veggie samosa than an okay beef one any day.
Price: 5 for $2
4 - New India Sweets & Restaurant
New India Sweets & Restaurant is located in a plaza on the corner of Britannia and Douguy. I remember coming here for samosas when I was a kid and they were as good then as they are today. They offer beef, chicken and veggie samosas. This place has the biggest samosas we on this list. The seams of the samosa were just about to burst with all the delicious spiced potatoes, onions, peas, lentils stuffing inside. It does have a nice kick, so be warned.
Price: 3 for $1.50
Filling: Beef, Chicken, Veggie
3 - Matheson Sweets & Catering Ltd
Located on the corner in another industrial plaza is Matheson Sweets & Catering. So many people have told me about this place and when I got there and saw a sign that read: closed from 2pm to 5pm, another person said, “Damn, I heard so much about these samosas.” When I got there the next day there was a bit of a line up. They only serve veggie samosas here — no meat and no spicy pastries. When you order the samosas, the server goes behind the one way mirror (so I guess he can see you and you can see the kitchen) and grabs you some nice and fresh samosas with hot sauce. These vegetarian samosas were absolutely delicious with a perfect balance of filling and spice.
Price: 3 for $1
White gold is located on the west side of Mississauga in an industrial building that you have never seen. There is another Indian Restaurant in front of the plaza, but just keep going towards the back and you will finally see a sign that says White Gold. This place has been around for 15 years and after eating the samosas, I can see why. They have two types of samosas: regular and darn spicy (well take out the darn). If you are looking for meat, you have to look elsewhere as they only serve vegetarian here — but I would take a great vegetarian samosa over a meat one any day. The samosas were nice and hot when I got them. The spicy samosas have a bit of a kick so watch out!
Price: 60 cents each
Filling: Veggie (spicy and regular)
1 - A-One Catering
“Simply the best” is A-One’s slogan and it’s hard to argue that when they have samosas that taste as good as theirs. A-One Catering is located on a side street in an industrial plaza by the airport that you will only find if you’re in the area (or read about it here). These are the best samosas in town and they are made in-house in A-one’s huge kitchen and bakery. They serve veggie, chicken, beef and cheese and all were piping hot and made fresh. The dough was perfectly crispy without being burned and the beef, veggie, chicken and cheese filling was cooked to perfection. The portions are also generous. You can always tell how fresh samosas are by how greasy the brown paper bag is and my bag was nice and greasy!
0.85 Chicken & Beef
Filling: Veggie, Chicken, Beef and Paneer (Cheese)
