Possibly one of the best samosas in the island

There are a few samosa stalls in Little India. The one frequented by A Herbivore in Penang is at the corner of King St & Market St.

A very friendly Uncle Wahab takes your orders while his two assistant fries up an assortment of Indian snacks. Indian cakes and sweets are available as well. Mostly vegetarian. Samosas are fried in small batches to keep them piping hot and crunchy. Uncle Wahab caters for parties and office events too.
