2016 Winner: The Hungry Traveler

Our put-upon Government Center drones, police officers and firefighters have long sought lunchtime solace at the Hungry Traveler, a careworn diner tucked away in Court Square, finding familiar cafeteria-style American fare at frugal prices. The food-dorkier among them know to order dishes from the owners’ Korean homeland, like leafy, healthy bibimbap topped with a fried egg and bulgogi tacos crowned with wedges of fresh avocado. A little gochujang can give an uplifting kick to the most world-weary bureaucrat’s day.
