I am so tired of eating in the same places time and again. Where are some good places Somerville, Medford, Malden, Boston or elsewhere that will tickle my taste buds with lots of exciting flavors and not put my wallet into cardiac arrest?

    Ummm...could you be more specific? Where have you been eating? What sort of food are you looking for?

      My favorite affordable restaurants in Somerville/Medford:

      1. Wang's Fast Food in McGoun square. Excellent Chinese dumplings and a wide variety of authentic Northern Chinese pastries. If other hounds have any comments on the rest of their menu, I'd love to hear them.
      2. Ball Square Seafood Old-style slightly sketchy wrapped-in-newspaper fish and chips joint. Try the clam strips.
      3. What's Cookin' on College Avenue. This place offers solid value for your money. The desserts alone are worth a visit, especially the pear almond torte. Their blue plate specials are pretty good too. You can get an entree and two side dishes for under seven dollars.
      4. Espresso Pizza I don't remember where the restaurant is, but their pizzas (and their hot delivery boys) are very popular amongst Tufts grad students.
      5. The Burren in Davis Square is an authentic Irish pub with the best bar food I've ever eaten. I'm told that the chips with curry sauce are just like the ones you get in Dublin.

      Thanks I'll I can think of off the top of my head, but I'll post some more if I think of any.
