street food

Hi!

Is there a street food scene in Boston, particularily around the tourist attractions? Any food trucks, hot dog carts, $1 slices of pizza, etc? Looking for ideas to eat cheaply for lunch while en route without resorting to corporate chain restaurants or going out of our way.

Thanks everyone!

If you are walking the freedom trail in the North End at lunch time, check out Galleria Umberto in the North End, near TheDaily Catch and on the opposite side of the street as Mike's Pasty. (I give you these landmarks cuz it's easy to miss.)

They sell thick crust, square pizza slices, calszone, arancini (rice balls) and panzarotti (similar to arancini but made with mashed potatoes) and beverages (including beer if you are so inclined.)

On Washington St. and Summer St. downtown there are a ton of good food carts.There are the standard sausages et al, but there are also carts from local restaurants, including a burrito joint and a kebab place/middle eastern restaurant. It's all very good, if you ask me.

Good food trucks near Copley Square and one has been near South Station. Also, excellent food trucks near the MIT campus in Cambridge. Lots of cheap eats options.
