Barbeque International Somerville

GoPapaya just introduced a discount for takeout orders so after my Korean lunch in Union Square I headed up the road to Barbeque International in Somerville. Not sure if they changed the name but here is a new website.

I don't think the name is fitting since most of what they do is Indian cuisine, but on the other hand, they do Pizza and Sandwiches as well. The owner also runs Singh's Cafe in Wellesley, that have a delicious lunch buffet. There is free on-street parking after the restaurant.

The menu is on the wall and the open kitchen can be seen further in. Impeccable clean and the service was very friendly.

Six tables are available if you want to eat in. They have some lunch specials on a separate menu.

Chicken Chili or Chicken Vindaloo? On the recommendation from the nice man behind the counter, I went with the Chicken Chili (11.95). "Indo-Chinese fusion of flavor, chicken cooked with tomatoes, onions, ginger, garlic, herbs & spices". All curries come with basmati rice but no condiments. It wasn't very spicy but had very good flavor and everything was cooked well. The basmati rice was very good, fluffy and nicely seasoned.

I couldn't find the wings on the menu so when I asked, he said: "Do you like spicy"? When I said yes, he recommended the Punjabi Wings (7.95). "Roasted or fried. Prepared with mint & spicy chili sauce, Served with our homemade sauce". I was advised that the roasted was better, so I went with that. There was no trace of the homemade sauce. The wings were cooked really well, and even the drumette was juicy. They weren't very spicy at all but really nicely seasoned. The wings are advertised as "Jumbo Wings," and they failed to live up to that. This is Jumbo Wings.

Download the GoPapaya app on the Apple store or Google Play store and create an account using the invitation code "PET8456". After your first meal out on GoPapaya, they'll send you a $10 Amazon gift card plus you save up to 50% off your meal! They now also have a discount program for takeouts.
