Changes abound in Somerville's Union Square
You've probably snacked on tapas at Spanish restaurants — think olives, chorizo, croquettes, et. al. But have you tried small plates with an Asian flair? Snack on papaya salad, homemade shrimp curry cakes, and paradise beef (marinated, dried, and deep fried beef, pictured) at Ronnarong Sakusa's restaurant. Pad thai and curries are also on the menu for Thai traditionalists. Check out the nice selection of craft brews, too.
