Surya, samosas and cheap corkage.
We had Indian Food at Surya on 3rd Street (at Crescent Heights) and it's one of my favorite places to go for a low key dinner. We went with 2 friends and everyone brought a bottle. Corkage is $15 - a deal!
We had a Huber-Bleger, Gewurztraminer, Alsace, 2006. My friend, Rebecca, bought it for $21.95 at Flask in Studio City.It was recommended by Ryan, the owner of the store, and was really great with the samosas.
Then we moved on to Rioja, which didn't really make sense, but still I love Artadi, Vinas de Gain, 2005. It has such great texture, moderate acidity and lots of dried red fruits. Just one of my favorites. You can get it at K&L for $27.99.
