Local finds/Hole in the walls/Not to be missed restaurants in the Boston area

My husband and I will be in the area during a few days in early July so any and all recommendations would be fabulous.

Thanks so much!

      We don't have a hotel yet but we will have a car - anywhere in the city would be great! Thanks!

          just a couple more to add to the exhaustive lists in the links above: Ken's Ramen (adjoining the Hong Kong supermarket on Brighton ave) and Cafe Mami (inside Porter Exchange on Mass Ave in Cambridge, home to several hole in the wall Japanese/Korean places)

          Cafe Mami
          1815 Massachusetts Ave Ste M4, Cambridge, MA 02140

            lot's of good suggestions - don't know if i'm repeating but if you want to do traditional seafood i'd go to yankee lobster down on northern pier, sit outside and tackle one, and for a waterfront experience Scups on the Harbor in East Boston. Go explore the Super 88 food court to eat around the asian/indian world (kantin is particularly good chinese and the vietnamese, korean and indian places are also fun).
