Anyway, back to food again, one of my favorite dishes while in Florence was its famous Florentine beefsteak. Here’s what I was told bout it by the locals, young beef steak weighing a kilo (bone included), at least 2cm thick and you are supposed to share it with another lucky person. Cooked simply with salt and pepper over a charcoal fire, followed by a trickle of extra-virgin olive oil.
Well, Osteria dall’Oste is a restaurant in Florence near the Central Railway Station, where I had my first (and hopefully not my last) Florentine steak. They had a slightly smaller portion for one on the menu so that’s what I ordered. Saw other tables having it too so I knew it had to be good. Tender, juicy, delicious, just bout everything good you can say bout a steak are just gonna come outta your lips when you take a bite. I believe lotsa other joints around Florence has it on their menu too so if you are into meat, don’t forget to take a stab at it when in the city.
|Excellent moist Tiramisu. Others I had in Italy were a little 'harder' and drier.|
