Mass Avenue’s Arlington Curry Showdown grows near: Signage has gone up for Punjabi Tadka, in the old Midami space in Arlington Center. It’s the latest from busy restaurateur Anhil Kumar, who owns Cambridge’s India Castle and Dasi Dhaba, as well as Medford’s Kabab Corner.

The restaurant is diagonally across the street from the venerable Punjab, one of the few places in the area to enjoy upscale Indian fare. Which one will end up currying the most favor? Hopefully there’s enough vindaloo to go around.
