For The Love Of Samosas

When one thinks of Samosas, two things come to mind: fiery crispy pockets stuffed with meat, or potatoes, vegetables, and of course India. However for Asha Ahmed, owner of Wiff samosas are much more than that. Samosas are a little piece of home to stave off the melancholy immigrants like Ahmed experience. A flavourful yet powerful way to bridge differences and bring together eclectic personalities and cultures; one that reflects the best values of this nation. 

“Tourists would often engage in conversations with local actors, musicians, poets over samosas and buur, while sipping hot cups of sweet tea. I was born in paradise, but the Somali Civil War changed all of it” Ahmed would often say of her homeland, and her decade long career as a restaurateur. Ahmed took refuge in Canada, and like many somali refugees began her life anew. 

On Weston Rd decades later people are once again at her tables, listening to local somali poets as they speak of somali culture over hot sweet tea, and samosas. “Just like the old days” She says with a cheeky smile “when people come to Wiff, they come for the love of samosas and leave with a little piece of Somalia”
