Somerville, MA Edition: Sarma

Sarma

Oh my goodness, Sarma.

SarmaThis is a popular restaurant in Somerville known for small plates of Mediterranean food.

Sarma

Sarma is a restaurant & bar where food, drink and music come together in a vibrant celebration of the good things in life. Modeled after the traditional meyhanes of Turkey, the menu is a large selection of small, seasonal plates ( meze ) that are designed to be shared. The flavors represent the Mediterranean and encourage food-friendly cocktails, craft beers or a glass of wine from a small but carefully selected list.
Sarma – wrapped; enveloped; rolled up; a bundle of food that is bite sized and served as a meze. An embrace. Throughout the eastern Mediterranean & the Middle East, Meze is a common way to start a meal or a party. Just as in Spain with tapas, many different small plates are shared with family and friends for a variety of small tastes. The point of snacking this way is to make the experience at the table as long as possible allowing time to sip, share thoughts, and hang out. Spice & herb combinations are the secret to giving these little dishes their big flavors without making them heavy.
