Another horse meat scandal!
This was the third or fourth story on elpais.com this morning, so it must be a big deal.
Well, as (possibly) the number one promoter of horse meat on the Iberian Peninsula, I find these scandals to be fascinating. Once again, some asshole is selling horse meat as regular beef, with falsified health certificates for the animals.
What’s the big deal with horse meat? Nothing. However, if they’re selling meat from animals that was used for pharmaceutical testing (for example) as if it were beef from healthy cows, then that’s a problem.
If you want some real horse meat, go talk to my horse butcher in Vallecas. She’s at Plaza de Doctor Lozano, 1, in the general area of Nueva Numancia metro. Here’s the map:
Horse meat is quite a bit cheaper than beef, and I bet you won’t even notice the difference.
Read my article on ¡Vaya Madrid! for more about why you should be ingesting yourself some equine: Horse Meat is Delicious and Good for You.
¡Hasta la próxima!
P.S. I don’t think my horse butcher is there anymore. Just google “carne de caballo” in your town and you’re bound to find something, though.
