“You'll know you're there when you see a huge vat of bubbling meats.” This is how I instruct my friends—it's my favorite direction to give—when they ask me where to eat in Mexico City. That direction is important. It's too easy to walk by Taqueria Los Cocuyos, the unassuming taco stand on a never-not-busy street in the historic center of Mexico City. But then you see the giant meat jacuzzi, filled to the brim with everything from ojo (cow eyeball) to tripa (tripe), and locals huddled around the salsas. And you know you're there. Each taco costs around $1, and you should 100 percent order more than you think you'll want. During my last visit, I opted for the suadero (brisket), longaniza (sausage),
Dear Heloise: I have a question about when a recipe calls for WINE as an ingredient. I need to know what to substitute. I don't think you can just leave it out, as I think it is supposed to be there as an acid.

For red wine, try: * Red wine vinegar. * Grape, pomegranate or cranberry juice. For white wine, try: * White wine vinegar. * Lemon juice. Happy cooking! — Heloise TOFFEE COOKIES Dear Heloise: I haven't seen your recipe for toffee cookies in a long time. Would you please reprint it? My wife and I loved the last batch we made. — Glen and Sadie F., Lexington, S.C. Glen

Strange sensations, unnatural colors, increased heart rate, heightened emotions, paranoia: It's all there in that plastic cup, the three or four times a year the brand introduces one of its Instagrammable, limited-time offer frapps. What a grande strange trip the latest iteration is, then. Fifty years after Woodstock, the Tie-Dye Frappuccino is here to remind you that the idealism of the 1960s is dead. [Who makes the best cookies-and-cream ice cream in the U.S.? We scooped up 15 top brands to find out.] This is the dawning of the age of Frappquarius: a pale yellow drink with streaks

Growing up, an eggplant was an eggplant: large, purple, and kind of bitter if you didn't cook it right. You'll find long and narrow Japanese eggplant, round purple Indian varieties and tiny little green ones that look like they're not ripe at all. It might feel a bit overwhelming, but don't let it stop you from picking up a few of those purple-and-white striped graffiti eggplant.

Located inside Yorkshire Square Brewery in downtown Torrance, Snap Tin Eatery makes the most of its English brewery setting, offering an inventive SoCal variation on modern British pub cuisine. While brewery fare is often made up of tired fries and sandwiches, chef Bruno Wu and the Snap Tin team make sure that is not the case here. Wu grew up in Brazil and worked at a wide range of restaurants including The Katsu-ya Group before beginning his own business as personal chef and restaurant consultant. Creating the meals at Snap Tin is a new venture: the dining program soft-opened on June 5 with appetizers-only; new dishes have been added continually since then. “We've been planning for a while,
