Suzy's Samosas Launches

hautesausage.jpegChicago's very own top 4 MasterChef finalist, Suzy Singh is making a splash on the food truck scene. After touring all day Tuesday on the Big Sausage truck with Rich Levy of Haute Sausage, the collaboration will continue as Suzy's Samosas launches on Monday, Sept. 19 through Sept. 26. The truck location is being kept secret, but you can get a clue of where the action will be at if you sign up for Singh's newsletter on her website. There will be a cap of 200 Samosas sold per day, so you'll have to be quick to get your hands on one.

The soft-launch opening on Friday (Sept. 16) will include the following samosas : "I'm SO Sweet" (sweetened strawberries and cream samosa with a ganache dipping sauce, topped with powdered sugar), "The Addiction" (tandoori samosa stuffed with butter chicken, served with a yogurt and cucumber raita), "The 'Fall'ing for You" (cinnamon spiced samosa stuffed with butternut squash and served with marshmallow fluff), and the "Original" (traditional potato and sweet pea samosa served with an umami mint and cilantro chutney).
