That is interesting that they smash the samosas before serving them. From the picture, these do not look anything special - and from your description, neither does the filling stand out. Perhaps the reason that this place is so popular is that samosa is a non-South Indian snack, and I am not sure there are many places in Chennai that serve it. The equivalent would be a decent dosa place in Lucknow - nothing out of the ordinary, but still highly popular because of the lack of widespread availability.

If you are ever in Kolkata (aka Calcutta), try the samosas that are filled with a cauliflower potato filling - the taste is very unique. Or the small samosas available at Allahabad railway station filled with a dried spiced lentil filling.
