Where to Get Specific Food Items

photo of hot and sour ramen from Sapporo Ramen, Cambridge, MAEvery now and then, folks send me notes asking where they can get good versions of specific food items such as pho, steak tips, and corned beef hash. And while you might get 10 different answers from 10 different people about the above foods or, say, chicken wings or hot dogs, the list below focuses on some of the better places in the Boston area (and a bit beyond) to get a few such items, and most of these also happen to be lesser-known spots, so you probably won't have to deal with huge crowds.
