49. Samosas at Thali Indian & Thai Cuisine
Thali Indian & Thai Cuisine is a new entry on Washington Avenue in South Beach. Owner Denis Nazareth of Mumbai offers a menu packed with a plethora of items from the namesake countries. The samosas are peerless -- two cleanly fried pockets bursting with mashed, spiced potato flecked with onions, peas, coriander, and tidbits of boiled potato. A smidgen of salad comes on the plate along with two dips (tamarind and mint). The price: an extremely reasonable $4.99.
