Ten Somerville restaurants are slated to participate in a tasting event to feature cuisine from the city's rich immigrant community.
The event, at the Center for the Arts at the Armory April 25, is thrown by the city's Welcome Project, a group aimed at working with immigrants in the city.
Called "YUM," the event will bring together restauranteurs who hail from India, Istanbul, Haiti, Italy, Tibet, Brazil, and other regions.
"One third of residents were born outside the US and more than 50 different languages are spoken at home by the students in our public schools," said Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone in a statement. "It should come as no surprise that we have some of the best international flavors on the East Coast."
The tasting event will run from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
YUM cards, available for $10, provide a 10 percent discount on food orders above $25 at the participating restaurants.
