Jen says don't let appearances fool you at Izzy's on Harvard Street in Cambridge:
... Izzy's is not much to look at from the outside. It looks like a run down sub shop. You enter, and the place looks like it hasn't changed since it opened 18 years ago. The decor is very eclectic, from colorful vinyl table coverings to a huge Puerto Rican flag hanging at the counter.
Oh but the food. The food belies the humble decor. It's vibrant, flavorful, and all around very satisfying. I can't believe it's taken me this long to try this place. ...
