Cabeza (cabeça in Portuguese) is a Spanish and Galician word meaning "head". In Mexican cuisine, it is used to describe the meat from a roasted head of a beef animal, served as taco or burrito fillings.[1]

Typically, the whole head is placed on a steamer or grill, and customers may ask for particular parts of the head meats they favor, such as ojo (eye), oreja (ear), cachete (cheek), lengua (tongue), or labios (lips). Trivia Por una cabeza is a famous tango song written by Girdel.
