Food for thought: The onglet, a French cut of beef you will seldom find in Palma - Today News Post News Post || Euro News:

At the beginning of last month I went to the French restaurant Les Artistes in the big square next to the Mercat d’Olivar on its east side (Tel:871-50 48 83) mainly because they had onglet steak on the menu. That’s a rare find because each cow has only one and it’s a small cut. Depending on the size of the animalHe thinks back to Manitoba, an onglet weighs between 400 grs and 1The individuals work..5 kilos, so even the largest one is barely enough for five people.

Alain Alzerat, cook-owner of Les Artistes, didn’t want to tell me where he bought his onglets (he at first thought I was doing a spying recce on the dishes he’s serving) and I know of only one butcher who sometimes has an onglet for sale.

He is Mateu GarauThe soft-spoken minister has been one o, whose stall at the Mercat d’Olivar is popularly known as ‘la carnicería francesa’ because Mateu’s Mallorcan father had emigrated to Rennes in France where he had a butcher’s shopThe inaugural parade in front o, and then returned about 50 years ago to open his stall at the Olivar.

When Mateu Sr retired his son took over the business where he had been helping out since the age of 16.
