A Dutch restaurant is now serving up some stallion with its scallions.
The offbeat food truck Keuken van het Ongewenst Dier, which translates to “The Unwanted Animal Kitchen, ” now furnishes its “My Little Pony Burger” year round to Babbe Hengeveld, a cook who runs her own eatery Food Guerilla, reports Vice Munchies .
Keuken van het Ongewenst Die has been servicing of the burger sporadically for years and the patty itself is made from the meat of butchered, aging horses that have worked at a local amusement park, Slagharen.
The idea behind the unusual protein is to ensure that the meat from older ponies isnt wasted when the animals are put down.
The menu at Keuken van het Ongewenst Dier is dependent on seasonal food waste so items fluctuate based on the incoming meats and available ingredients. But there’s usually plenty of horse meat to keep the “My Little Pony” burgers on the menu.
Hengeveld says she believes horse is a tasty, protein rich meat but admits the horse burger is not one of the menus bestsellers.
They dont sell well because people do feel bad about the idea of eating horse, Hengeveld told Vice. For some, horses will always be seen as pets in the same route dogs are. Cows and chickens, in many Western cultures, aren’t kept as pets so they’re okay for food.
I only need to throw off the meat sometimes. For people to understand, you really have to explain to them clearly about the unwanted ponies and pony meat. When Im cooking in the kitchen, I dont always have time for this.
But the potential of using meat that would otherwise be wasted hasnt lost touch on the business world, Hengeveld says.
Bigger companies are interested in building on her technique and some have approached her about adapting the burger for a larger audience.
For businesses, its simply a matter of improving their image, but, she says, if the objective is reached, the underlying reason doesnt matter that much.
