I've just moved up to the area and am looking for food food and more food.

So far I've found:

Johnny's Luncheonette (love the cornbread french toast)
Jumbo Seafood (food was eh, service terrible)
New Ginza (I think I love this place, the gyoza was amazing and the aioli for the calamari divine)
Crown Cafe (tasty no frills pancakes, and cheap)

(Also stopped by Boloco and a bar & grill chain in Natick. Boloco I would do again although it was just average, the other place no -- I think it was Joe's American, but I'm not sure.)

Where else should I go? Although my palette would like Lumiere my wallet would much prefer frozen pizza or something of the sort. So... I compromise and try to eat out on a budget. Hole in the wall type places are perfectly acceptable and maybe even preferred so long as they are tidy. Definitely looking for something within 5 or 10 minutes of that ridiculous circle/rectangle at Centre and the Mass Pike.

I really like Latin cuisine, although not so much Spanish -- Cuban and Mexican place high. So does Korean. I'm not familiar with Brazilian food at all, but would love to know a good place to try it out (seems to be a decent Brazilian population here). Italian is always good, Chinese and Japanese fine, pizza, subs... whatever is out there as long as it's good!
