Known for its spices, Indian fare jolts the taste buds in a manner that kissing an electrical socket could never match. Enjoy shockingly good cuisine with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indian eats at India Pavilion in Cambridge.
After perusing India Pavilion's tempting menu, patrons can ignite comestible engines with vegetarian samosas—crispy pillow-shaped turnovers stuffed with potatoes, green peas, chickpeas, and spices ($2.50). Supplement main dishes with a selection of naan or paratha, such as garlic naan ($3.95), ideal for mopping up wayward chutneys or a melty vampire. Specialty entrees such as the tandoori mixed platter—a table-toppling selection of tandoori and tikka chicken, grilled shrimp, and two types of kebabs ($19.95)—are best shared amongst amigos; individual diners may choose to hoard the homemade cheese and creamy spinach combination that is saag paneer ($8.95), potentially ending chance encounters with Popeye on a low note.
