Samosa House Folds In El Segundo

With competition in El Segundo/Manhattan Beach stiff, the restaurant scene in the back development of Plaza El Segundo is fighting for life.  In 2017, an outpost of Samosa House took over The Counter space at the front of the mall.  But now, it appears, they have given up the ghost as evidenced by the papered-over windows.  That leaves only three eateries left, including an increasingly isolated Veggie Grill.
