Boston Indian Kitchen

My apologies for not posting in a while, but these last few weeks have been quite hectic. I’m actually on spring break, so I’ll be able to catch up with all my blogging these next couple days! Two weeks ago, I went with Annie to Boston Indian Kitchen, a new Indian restaurant that opened up on Mass Ave a couple months ago. To order, you order at the front, and wait for your number to be called. All of the food comes out in compostable dishware (which I found interesting given the modern furniture and sleek atmosphere), and almost everything is under $8.

I tried its “signature dish,” which was the Tandoori Chicken Naanz Sandwich—a pocket of naan filled with spicy tandoori chicken, greens, pickled onion, cucumbers, and a cilantro chutney. I had expected the sandwich to be heavy and filling, but I actually felt quite healthy as I munched away on this mostly-vegetable filled naan pocket. To be perfectly honest, it tasted like a non-vegetarian version of a Clover sandwich, with just a little kick of spiciness from the tandoori flavor.

 

Annie ordered the Vindaloo Chicken Curry Bowl, which came with rice and a small tomato and cucumber salad. “It wasn’t as heavy as I expected,” she explained. “But it was filling, and had a lot of flavor.” She also ordered a Mango Lassi, a mango and yogurt drink, which she described as “tangy.” I took a sip and thought that it was quite heavy on the yogurt side. 

Overall, I’d say that Boston Indian Kitchen is like a good food truck in restaurant form. The prices are comparable to local food trucks, and the food is perfect for a quick lunch. 6.5/10
