Does anyone know of any restaurants in Toronto or the suburbs serving horsemeat on a regular basis?

    There is a horsemeat butcher store at 2995 Islington Avenue in North York which sells only horsemeat. They have everything from roasts, to steaks, sausages, etc., and would probably be happy to advise you on how to cook the meat.

      It's not on the menu, but the owner of La Palette will offer it to you if he senses that you might be into that kind of thing. And it's quite nice, to answer another poster's question. Quite like beef tenderloin, very lean and tender.

        It turns up at Romagna Mia (Front E. of Jarvis) as a special from time to time.

          My roomate was talking about this being served at "La Pallette" in Kensington. Sorry, I'm not sure if it is served all the time. I have never tried horsemeat. What is it like?

            Horsemeat is leaner and often more tender than beef. It has a slightly sweeter, heavier flavour but is not gamey in taste.
