In case you missed it, Eater launched a dining guide to the whole entire world yesterday. Do bookmark it in advance of any trip planning. Cities include: Buenos AiresTaipeiNairobi, and over two dozen (!) others, in the U.S. and across the globe.

— In other news, Taco Bell will bring its boozy Cantina to two new cities this year; why are cold coffee drinks so sweet?; Yelp invests in video content creation; and more.

— Taco Bell's Cantina concept, in which the company serves its regular, high fat and high sodium quasi-Mexican food in an elevated setting with booze, is expanding to at least two new cities this year: Columbus, Ohio and Atlanta, Georgia.

— The cold coffee drink market may be heating up, but for most of the new drinks hitting the market this year, sweetness is key. Dunkin' Donuts just announced it would be expanding its iced coffee line up this summer to include new Hershey's flavored syrups. When did we decide we wanted our coffee to taste like candy?

— Oh god. No. Just no.

— More video content is coming to Yelp, according to a release. The review and listings site has inked a deal with StudioNow to offer businesses tools to create their own ad-like videos. Will the Yelp of the future be video-based?

— Also in tech this week: UberEats launched in Singapore and Starbucks' mobile app is now available for users in Japan.

— Finally, do you have a sweet tooth?
