Best food for under $5.50

For students on a college budget, reasonably priced is less than 5.50. Can anybody recommend, the best food, most worthy of $5.50 or less? ($3.00 is even better) The best value, but decadent food. For example, falafels and shwarmas were $3.00 where I came. Also, could you guys recommend places that are central to where the students are, like 5 minutes from campus? So on mass ave, around harvard square etc in cambridge, and around fenway and back bay for the berkley, etc etc.

To get us started,

You can get falafel balls and grape leaves for 95 cents at cafe jaffa on gloucester. Good to satisfy a craving

Vietnamese sandwiches in Chinatown for $2.50 (Around the corner from happy budha)

You can get a brownie at coldstone for $1.00 (Instead of starbucks for 1.50 or more)

Samosas and other indian treats at Shalimar on Mass Ave in cambridge for way less than 5. Samosas are 1.50
