Casual lunch/dinner and bakeries in Columbus? (esp. Worthington area)

I am staying in Columbus for a week and am looking for any local can't miss, casual and carry-out type spots.

On a previous visit, I have been to Chutney's Indian because it is near my hotel (verdict: only ok), and Los Gauchos (yummy gringas al pastor) and Jeni's Ice Cream (omg!!! 3 mini scoops of salted caramel, black coffee, and dark chocolate- definitely going back!) that I discovered from reading reviews online.

I especially like authentic ethnic foods, or anything local and unique. Looking more for casual/carryout places, not really sit-down upscale restaurants since I am on my own. I am staying in the Worthington area, so that would be most convenient, but I don't mind driving a bit, it is fun to explore some different parts of town.

Also, any suggestions for bakeries for cupcakes or cookies? I was planning to get some kind of goody to give as a thank-you gift. I was thinking of Blue Frost in Worthington but saw it got mixed reviews?

Thanks for any and all suggestions!
