Went early on Saturday evening to Highland Avenue Cuisine in East Somerville (nearish to Union Square). The place was pretty crowded with diners and people waiting for take-out orders. I had the fried chicken (small order, which was 2 pieces), my friend had the chicken with sauce, which was really just fried chicken covered in a tomato based sauce. (he got large order, 3 pieces).
Both came with rice and beans, fried plantains, spicy slaw. The fried chicken was very good, freshly made, chicken fell off the bone. We also each had a strawberry juice (they have them, and a few other flavors, with or without milk, we had without), quite big, not a bad deal. Cold and delicious, maybe SLIGHTLY too sweet.
19 dollars or so for total bill before tip, and more than enough food for 2. I saw a nice looking fried fish on another table (I couldn't tell what kind). There are also goat and other meat dishes available.
