2. Bronwyn 255 Washington St, Somerville, MA 02143 (Union Square)

This cozy Union Square restaurant serves up modern twists on traditional and authentic German fare (borscht, massive bretzels, every wurst imaginable). And, in true German fashion, Bronwyn offers dozens of beers (by the liter, boot or bucket) from all over central Europe and New England. Owner Tim Wiechmann was aiming to imitate the atmosphere of a European dive or hostel with this location, and he totally nailed it with its nearly medeival look (dark, heavy wooden tables, worn-leather bar stools, rustic red and blue walls).

4. Machu Picchu Charcoal Chicken & Grill 25 Union Sq, Somerville, MA 02143 (Somerville)

The smell of charcoal grilled chicken should guide you to Machu Chicken, where you can get chicken that is simultaneously juicy, smoky, and crispy. The price ($10 for half a chicken) only makes it better.

7. Buk Kyung 9 Union Sq Ste A, Somerville, MA 02143 (Somerville)

Koreans say Buk Kyung is as close to authentic Korean food as you get in Boston. The restaurant specializes in Chinese-influenced Korean dishes, evident in its community-sized plates and signature jajangmyun, or soybean-paste noodle. The restaurant’s no-fuss yellow décor and tag-team husband-and-wife duo further confirm that it serves the real-deal Korean.
