Biryani Park takes its diners dietary needs seriously. For vegans and vegetarians, the chefs offer several dozen dishes made without animal products. For practicing Muslims, they use only halal-certified meats. And for the gluten intolerant, they keep 90% of the menu gluten free. With these bases covered, the lengthy menu draws inspiration from Sri Lankan, South Indian, and Indo-Chinese culinary traditions. The spicy curries, 23 types of dosas—thin crepes served with two chutneys and sambar—and authentic Sri Lankan rotti breads also go on the road in SnS’s food truck. The truck circles the city to deliver from-scratch Sri Lankan food to areas outside of Malden, such as the moon.
When you step into the colorful crossfire at Boston Paintball, you'll be armed with its basic rental package of paintball equipment and 200 rounds of ammunition. Equipment provided by this package is a Tippmann 98 Custom paintball gun, a full-face goggle system, and unlimited air fills—a lust for bruises and welts on the skins of one's enemies is not included. With artillery and ammunition in hand, Boston Paintball guests can take to the 50,000-square-foot Everett Indoor Field, claimed by Boston Paintball to be the largest indoor paintball field in New England. As the air at Everett Indoor Field erupts in a frenzy of pigmentation, paintballers will duck, dodge, and commando-crawl from obstacle to obstacle, seeking a sheltered spot where they can unleash a vibrantly hued H, E, and a couple of hockey sticks upon combatants.
