Favorite dish in Boston area - under $15
Although I have thoroughly enjoyed the "ten best things to eat in Boston" thread, I need a manageable (and affordable) go to list that I can start working my way through.
The only rule - you can only name ONE dish, the restaurant has to be in greater Boston and it must be less than $15. Any course (including desserts) is okay.
My pick - the spicy salted ribs at Great Taste in Chinatown.
I'm going to go with the tortellini soup at Alia in Winthrop. The taste, the smell, and simply the look of it is so good that I almost get weepy thinking about it.
Maybe the smoked blufish cakes at Highland Kitchen, or (when they have them) the grilled sardines at Rendezvous.

Not a dish but the Bahn Mi sandwich for $3.50 at Pho Viet in the old Super 88 food court. Also, a new favorite: the $14.95 double lobster special with scallion and ginger at China Star of Lowell. Oh, and one more: Ming's Bings, 3 dumpling sliders, duck, pork and cheeseburger at Blue Ginger's lounge, I think it is around $12.

this is hard... but my favorite dish at the moment is the sautéed potato gnocchi with squash puree, asparagus and almonds at the Sel de La Terre in Natick. I think it might be $15.... maybe slightly higher- whoops.
