The Best Horse Meat in Paris?

Jump to last reply

And I mean the very best raw horse meat in Paris - sold in places I've seen with a neon-lit picture of a horse' head and the words something like "Chevalline" - or Horse Meat shop.

My French relatives tell me that once there were many of these as men thought wolfing down raw horse meat boosted their virility but this practice seems to have largely died out.

But as an OAP needing a boost once in a while on my upcoming trip, before visiting Pigalle, I'd like to get my hands on the best horse meat in Paris and by best I mean best acting.

Can anyone help me out?

Do any French monsieurs still eat raw horse meat?

And do not think I am horsing around on this post but an dead serious!
