by Nichole Manna – If you find yourself traveling to Boston soon or later on, keep in mind there are delicious and affordable restaurants just waiting for you. Take a look at these great choices:
Armando’s Pizza has such good reviews it’s been described as heavenly. They’re located in Huron Village at 160 Huron Avenue. One slice of pizza is just $2.00. They also make salads and subs. Unfortunately, they don’t have delivery options, but the drive is worth it.
Liz Froment suggests the following food trucks:
Bon Me (Vietnamese – http://www.bonmetruck.com/ )
Roxy’s Grilled Cheese (http://www.roxysgrilledcheese.com/ )

She hopes to one day travel the world and learn how to say “where’s the toilet?” in as many languages as possible. While studying in her family’s homeland, Italy, she learned two very important lessons: there’s nothing better than eating blood orange gelato in front of the Pantheon and wine really is just grape juice.
