The trio of Kona Tacos at Salt on Mass (505 Massachusetts Ave., 317-638-6565), where delicate fried wonton shells hold cubes of tuna and wahoo poke wilting in soy, with a swipe of spicy mayo filling in the flavors with richness.

The Rosemary Ham sandwich from Joe’s Next Door (111 W. Main St., Carmel, 317-846-8877), the new sandwich takeout counter inside Joe’s Butcher Shop. Meat layered with aged white cheddar, roasted-tomato conserva, and house IPA mustard thick with seeds push the structural limits of an airy stirato roll.

Cake Bake Shop’s (6515 Carrollton Ave., 317-257-2253) lusciously creamy (and not painfully tart) lemon bar on a fat shortbread crust.
