Man buns: The ranks of the lamb samsy, shown to the right of their beef-filled kin, were already depleted. My samsa ($2.50), however, was still hot and supple from the oven, and it easily split open along a seam. The closeup doesn't do justice to the steaminess of the fillings, or to their proportion; lamb was better represented than all that onion would suggest.
The bakery is takeout only, though for a purchase of a single samsa you can stretch that definition by devouring it just inside the door. Or pay a call, instead, on Rokhat's new chaikhana (teahouse) just down the block, which serves soups and salads, manty and pilaff, loads of kabobs, and those same fresh-baked samsy, too.
