Hei La Moon
had various different dumplings: shrimp and pork, chives, yam. Also shrimp cheong fun, thousand-year egg and pork porridge, shiu mai, black bean spare ribs. The dumpling skins were nice and firm; just the way I like it. the cheong fun is also firm unlike the soft versions at china pearl which i find slimy. a nice touch of these are the use of tiny bits of very fresh vegetables, either for flavor or crunch in the dumplings, cheong fun and shiu mai. overall the best dim sum I have had in boston; the selection is small but the ingredients are fresher than most places.

Armando pizza
i don't know what the big fuss is about; i lived in nyc many years ago and every other block has a pizza place like Armando. Yes the crust is thin and crisp but it is still a dumbed down version of real italian pizza.

Tacos Lupita
nice, soft, warm corn burrito. the pork inside is a bit charred though. the gordita is a very thick tortilla that is at the same time greasy and tasty. amazing food if you ignore the kitchen's condition.
