Steakhouse admits to serving horse meat for past 60 years2/18/2013
"This steak still has the marks where the jockey was hitting it," Rodney Dangerfield quipped in "Caddyshack," but that could've also been pulled from a Yelp review of one Dutch steakhouse. The owner of Amsterdam's Piet de Leeuw admitted that he's been passing off horse meat as beef steaks for more than 60 years. Loek van Thiel originally denied the allegations, until one newspaper tested the restaurant's most popular cuts and proved they were pure horse. Van Thiel then admitted they'd been serving up filly steaks since 1949. "I've never considered saying 'horse steak' on the menus," van Thiel said. "People enjoyed their food, business was good, so why should I?" We're glad he used the past tense there. [Source]
