Chickens remain the United States' favorite flightless bird, narrowly beating out penguins, kiwis, and Larry Bird. Dine on America's best with today's Groupon: $15, you get $30 worth of American and Middle Eastern fare at Mass Chicken in Cambridge.
Mass Chicken's chefs fuse American and Middle Eastern culinary traditions to craft spicy poultry, wraps, and savory dishes from fresh ingredients. Meals kick off as diners scramble over a chicken wings plate ($8), sink teeth into half ($10) or whole ($19.50) portions of chicken dinners, or stuff quarter ($8) portions into nearby washing machines. Tender, boneless chunks of succulent lamb slide to the forefront of the lamb dinner kabob ($11.50) alongside rice and grilled tomatoes. Diners can grab hold of the falafel dinner ($8) to bite into succulent flavor, or belly-flop onto plates teeming with chicken fingers ($8).
It's common to claim a food "tastes like chicken," but the cooks at Mass Chicken prove that chicken doesn't have a uniform taste. They deep fry it and serve it as wings, skewer and marinate it to create kabobs, and roast it on a spit. The eatery's extensive selection of wraps and subs ranges from chicken fingers and chicken salad to chicken smothered in cheesesteak fixings. Chicken even winds up in sides, such as beans with chicken or even chicken with chicken. Though poultry-focused, the menu finds room for plenty of chicken alternatives, from mozzarella sticks and lamb kabobs to wraps or subs with meatballs, sirloin, and falafel.
