A Dutch restaurant has caused a stir with its “My Little Pony Burger,” not because of the name, but because it is actually made of horse meat.
Chef Babbe Hengeveld, who owns and operates the Dutch restaurant named Food Guerilla, is responsible for the “My Little Pony Burger” made of real horse meat. She says the meat comes from older horses that have outlived their usefulness and are taken to slaughter. Making the burgers, she insists, is a way to make sure the meat doesn’t just go to waste, VICE Munchies reported.
As far as she is concerned, Hengeveld says the horse burger meat is very tasty, but she admits the dish doesn’t sell very well and people are a bit squeamish about the meat.
“They don’t sell well because people do feel bad about the idea of eating horse,” Hengeveld told Vice.
“I just need to throw away the meat sometimes. For people to understand, you really have to explain to them clearly about the unwanted ponies and horse meat. When I’m cooking in the kitchen, I don’t always have time for this,” she added.
The meat itself comes from an offbeat food truck called Keuken van het Ongewenst Dier, which translates into English as “The Unwanted Animal Kitchen.” These restaurant folks try to use socially conscious supplies, The New York Post said.
The food reviewer at VICE Munchies noted that the whole idea wasn’t very appealing to her, but in the end, she wrote, “I do have to confess that I did really enjoy my horse-meat burger.”
