Ever Eat Cow Cheek?

No? Well, neither had I. Until we hit Taqueria El Mariachi on Wednesday.

Called Cabeza, this cheek taco was actually quite delicious. I've tried Lengua (tongue) and had a less than thrilling experience, so I was a little nervous.

The meat was very soft and stringy, although a little fatty. It's not something I'd eat all the time, but if you're going to branch out and try something wild, this is a safe bet.

Note: the Lengua was not from this restaurant, but from Tacos Lupita.

This Taqueria El Mariachi meal was rated: 6.8.
