From Seattle Eater
January 24th 2017
In what may very well be a first for the region, Seattle and the Eastside will soon get to indulge in Uzbek hand pies called samsa courtesy of a new food truck named Tabassum.
Founder Suriya Yunusov has fond memories of enjoying samsa back in her native Uzbekistan. “These tasty buns are one of Central Asia’s most popular street foods. Every Uzbek family has a favorite samsa recipe, and we do too,” Suriya said via a public relations representative. “We’re bringing the authentic spices and flavors to Northwest streets wrapped all in a flaky bundle of puff pastry.”
Tabassum, which means “smile” in Uzbek, will serve two samsa, one with Halal ground beef and cumin, the other a vegetarian version with butternut squash, garlic, and cumin. There will also be two salads (beet and carrot) and drinks.
