WUBurger Gourmet Cambridge

WUBurger Gourmet in Cambridge is located in Inman Square and this is their second location, the first one is a more casual eatery in Woburn. The owners, Deepak Diwan and Kal Gullapalli, decided to do something different and introduced Nashville Hot Chicken Sundays starting a couple of weeks back. They said this was a bit of a passion project for them and a way to give customers a taste of a type of food they love. Who doesn't love a good fried chicken so off I went on this gorgeous Sunday.

Parking is free on Sundays and I managed to get a spot really close.

It's not a big place but very nicely decorated and impeccably clean. They were prohibited to redo the interior in the Woburn location.

The Nashville Fried chicken comes either with White meat ($13) or Dark ($12) and of course, I went with the dark. You have three choices of sauces:
  • A mild sweet and savory honey butter sauce.
  • A house hot sauce that is cayenne forward and combines smoky, sweet, and spicy flavors.
  • A "Melt Your Face Off," which "hurts so good" and is made with ghost peppers and served with gloves.
I went with the House Hot and it was pleasantly spicy without overpowering the chicken. Despite having had the sauce poured over it, the chicken was still super crispy and cooked perfectly, moist and tender. The picture doesn't show the size of the thigh but it was big. Yes, you can see the cayenne colored sauce pooling on the plate and it will run down your arm. There is an excellent potato salad hiding on the other side of the slaw. The slaw had, apart from cabbage, both kale and shaved Brussels sprouts in it. Despite that, it was also super tasty and crunchy. The chicken is cooked to order so fast food it isn't.

What a deal I did run into today, if you checked in on Facebook, you got a second order of chicken for free, so my dinner is all set! Not only that but if you add a photo you also get a free ice cream cookie! The Chocolate Chip cookie was nice and moist and was perfect after the spicy chicken. The service was very good with both the manager and Deepak, one of the owners, making sure everyone was fine. Everyone was very happy to chat about the food and their other location.

Their spirit animal was hanging out at the next table. This was one loud rubber chicken and really show the spirit of the place. No Nashville Chicken Sunday on the 4th of July weekend but after that, it will be back for the whole summer. They also have a liquor license and serve craft beers.
