A mini-Westside empire (with a location in Silver Lake too), Samosa House is our go-to for a casual vegetarian lunch or dinner. Walk in, head to the counter, and ask for the three-item combo. You get naan, rice, and your choice of three constantly changing entrees. If the smoky cauliflower curry is present, do not pass go without it.
