Lunch in Central Square

Where should I have lunch in Central Square on Saturday? A friend and I are going to meet up for a 'catch-up' session. We often go to Tavern on the Square, but i'm getting a little tired of it.
A few things I like on a Saturday:
Dim sum at Mary Chung ("mini pork steamer buns" are actually soup dumplings)
Algerian/Tunisian food at Baraka Cafe
Bengali at Royal Bengal
Casual American (including breakfast/brunch stuff) at Miracle of Science (basically a bar with really good food)
Korean grill-table BBQ at Koreana
Quality fast-food burgers (including non-beef options) at Four Burgers
Tibetan at Rangzen
We are Plough regulars so I am going to heartily support that choice. Agree the food is cheap and very good, Jennifer and Brendan the consummate hosts. Sit in the back snug next to the street-side window - you will be somewhat sheltered from the volume and in the best seat in the house. But another (less boisterous) option is Garden at the Cellar - fab food, subdued (if not soporific) atmosphere and reasonable prices.
Agree with most of Slim's recs - however, have been burned by service tooooo many times at Koreana to be able to go back again, and bar service is simply non-existent (if you want a drink with lunch.)
