Guru the Caterer, Somerville

I love their tag line: “Divine Indian food for brilliant minds.”

 

Guru’s is a tiny take-out out shop on Broadway in Somerville. They have a very limited menu; they offer 5 items (3 meat, 2 veg) that rotate on a daily basis. Your choice is lamb and veg ($8), chicken and veg ($7) or 2 veg ($6). All come with rice and roti (Indian flatbread).

 

I went with chicken tikka masala with a potato and green bean dish. The chicken was well seasoned (albeit a bit spicier than I like) and I liked the potato dish a lot. It was a easy, cheap and satisfying meal. There are enough leftovers for another meal.

 

I will definitely try it again. Next time I will call ahead and make sure they are offering something I am interested in.

When describing restaurants in the Paris of the new millenium, it is helpful to say which square it is in. Taco Loco and Guru are both on Broadway but are 4 miles away from each other. Teele, Powderhouse, Ball, Magoun, Union, Porter, Inman, Davis, etc. This helps bring out the local flavor of this wonderful city called Somerville in a place called America.

I also would be very disappointed if I ordered chicken marsala and received chicken (tikki) masala. The "r" makes a big difference (not to be confused with "R"). It would be like getting a shirt that said Admial TJ O'Bien on it. Devastating.
