Philadelphia chef plans to introduce HORSE MEAT to menu at popular Sicilian restaurant

Philadelphia restaurateur Peter McAndrews is planning to add horse meat to his menu amid a controversy in Europe over the equine fare being sold as beef.

McAndrews, who specializes in Italian cuisine, owns more than a half dozen restaurants in the Philadelphia area including Monsu, Modo Mio, Popolino, La Porta and Paesano’s sandwich shops.

He told restaurant blogger Victor Fiorella that he plans to ’embrace horse meat wholeheartedly’ at his popular Sicilian spot, Monsu, in the spring.

‘In Italian food, a lot of [horse meat] is made into salami or cured meats, and some parts are also good like regular steak would be, just like a cow,’ McAndrews said.
