Lee’s standby on the Mexican-inspired menu is the huevos rancheros. “The salsas are homemade and delicious,” he adds. 2339 Frankfort Ave.

Lunch

Royals Hot Chicken

Choose from five heat levels and seven dipping sauces at this Nashville-style chicken institution. “I go for the second hottest, which is plenty hot.” 736 E. Market St.

Dinner

Vietnam Kitchen

“One of the city’s originals — it’s been here more than 25 years.” His usual? Spicy rice noodles with satay broth, broccoli, peanuts, and lemongrass. 5339 Mitscher Ave.

Dessert

Wiltshire Bakery & Café

The baked goods at the catering company–turned–restaurant lean toward nostalgic childhood faves: “They make everything from homemade Pop-Tarts to mini-doughnuts.” 901 Barret Ave.
