Nzuko is a Gem Tucked inside a Strip Mall

I went to Nzuko several months ago because I had a drive to MGH and needed something I could eat with one hand while driving. The sandwich I ordered was a jerk chicken wrap and I polished it all before I even got onto the Mass Pike! Ever since, I’ve been going to Nzuko weekly for dinner and haven’t looked back. The restaurant is a gem because it serves healthy food and soups that are flavorful and not overly salted. It’s hard pressed to find Caribbean/Mediterranean style restaurants in the burbs that are healthy. The wraps are super flavorful with sweet plantains inside along with jerk chicken giving it a spicy, sweet, out of this world contrast of flavors. The genius of their wraps is that the flavors inside the wrap are so delicious that you don’t mind that they are all inside a bland but healthy tasting whole wheat wrap! The wrap is just doing what it’s supposed to do and that’s to hold all the good cuisine together! The restaurant inside is very charming too, a lot of personal touches with a laid back islandy vibe. We need more Nzukos! I’m both Caribbean and Mediterranean and I give this restaurant two big thumbs up.
