SILVER LAKE — The exterior of the former Dusty’s Bistro has received a colorful new paint job and a new sign reading “Samosa House Sunset” has been installed. Inside, a new interior is under construction. Nearby tenants say the new Sunset Boulevard restaurant will be serving Indian-style, vegetarian cuisine. Is this the Eastside expansion of Samosa House, which operates stores and restaurants in Culver City and the Mar Vista area? Yes it is.
Vibha Bhojak, who opened the Samosa House grocery in 1979 and later the Samosa House East restaurant in 2009, said the family-owned business plans to open its new Silver Lake restaurant this Sunday with a free, tasting day. “It’s going to be Indian vegetarian and vegan-friendly,” said Bhojak.
Bhojak said her son Kunal, encouraged, the family to open a Silver Lake location. “My son loves Silver Lake,” she said. “We have been actively looking for a location in Silver Lake since last year.”
