Looking for Good Places that do takeout on the Cambridge/Somerville line
My parents are in town over the next and we will be doing lots of takeout with them for dinners (in the past we have always gone out and they have enjoyed dinners at Oleana, East Coast Grill, and Ole to name a few but we have a new baby so will be staying in). Our usual takeout options are Zoe's, Kebab Factory and Taqueria La Mexicana. I am sort of at a loss in trying to think of some other good takeout options in the general vicinty (Harvard Square, Porter Square, Inman Square, Union Square). What am I missing/overlooking? Any cuisine and price point is really fine - just looking for some additional variety to throw into the mix. Thanks!
ETA: Two of us are non-meat eaters so some place that has good meat free options would be good.

I'd add Rod Dee in Porter Sq to the list for some thai food. If you do sushi, throwing together a sushi dinner with fish from New Deal and Reliable Market is a nice treat (we make our own sushi rice, which is easy, and then just serve a plate of fish, a big bowl of rice, and sheets of nori/seaweed for each person to make their own hand rolls).
I'm no connoisseur, but I'll never turn down an eggplant parm sub from Newtowne Grill either.

Repeating from the other thread, but I'd strongly recommend the Peruvian grilled chicken from Machu Picchu in Union Square. (Note there are two outposts of MP -- one larger restaurant and one chicken grill; I prefer the chicken grill). It's great to take away, with sides of rice and beans, some yummy salads, and the anticuchos (grilled beef hearts) are good too.
Lots of places:
Pho 'n' Rice (across from Zoe's on Beacon St.) has quite decent pho.
Also a big fan of Machu Picchu Pollos a la Brasa (charbroiled chicken); whole chicken with sides for something like $16---I like the fried sweet potatoes side.
Capone's in Union Square has fresh pasta and frozen sauces; fresh pasta cooks in a few minutes! Also have frozen ravioli, lasagna trays, empanadas, etc. Lots of great stuff that requires minimal prep at home.
Olecito (Inman) has good tacos, burritos, and tortas (sandwiches)
Punjabi Dhaba (Indian in Inman): I love it but not everyone does; call ahead for shorter wait times
Kolbeh of Kabob (name?) on Cambridge St. (across from Camb hosp) has solid Persian and pan-Middle-Eastern food: nice grilled meats, rice dishes, hummus, falafel, etc.
