Cambridge, Medford, Somerville - Cheap and Craveable

Hello!
My friend and I are visiting the Cambridge, Medford, Somerville area thinking that we might move there over the summer. We're looking to find a replacement for our current "crave" spots; the kind of space where you can get a lot of delicious food for $7 or so, and that you "need" to go a couple of times a month.
Any ideas?

    I second both Dowee & Rice and Tenoch. Would also add Greek Corner for gyros. And Deli-icious is a good place for large and tasty sandwiches for cheap, although not somewhere I go regularly, so not sure how craveable I find it! For a bit more $ (~$10), I often crave Highland Kitchen's burger (meat or veggie), and their other sanwiches are good too. (All of my additional suggestions are in Somerville.)

        Wang's Chinese Food in Magoon Square on the Somerville/Medford border. We go about 3 times a month.

        Blue Shirt Cafe in Davis Square.

          Doowee and Rice. Vietnamese/Asian flavors - diff meats on rice or fluffy buns, plus dishes like spicy chicken bits and fries with salty chicken hearts. Their marinated beef noodles is my current "crave" food - I've been eating it once every week or two since I found it.

          Some photos are on their site:
