You won't find Cosme's much-'grammed husk meringue in Mexico City, but what you will find are street vendors doling out thick, cactus-topped tortillas, slow-roasted rabbit and hulking tortas, among other things. Not sure where to start? Consider Eat Mexico ($25), a book on all things street food, your ticket in. Lesley Téllez, the blogger behind The Mija Chronicles and founder of Mexico City culinary tourism group Eat Mexico, captures the vibrancy of the city through the street food you'd see, smell and devour on a trip to the DF. Doesn't your beach spread deserve some fresh tamales?
