Eating ENTIRE Huge FLORENTINE STEAK in Florence Italy

  • Published on Sep 16, 2018
  • My first time in Florence Italy and as soon as I got off the train from Venice, I had to find a restaurant that serves the traditional Florentine steak. This cut of steak is leaner than most other steaks I've had, especially the A5 wagyu in Japan.
    I got the T bone which gave me two different cuts of steak meat and the tenderloin part was just mind blowingly delicious. The steak had a huge beef flavor and the tenderloin part of the steak was just the most tender steak ever.

      You should come to Austria! Really great melting pot foodwise, and Vienna is a super gorgeous city! Also not too far from Italy :D If you ever do come to Austria (which you definitely wouldn't regret) I'd be happy to give you recommendations on where to eat :)

    2Kg = 4.4lbs = 70.4 oz. How long did it take to eat? How long did you have to sleep? I am not going to ask about digestion etc....This amount of meat is comparable to some food challenges at the Big Texas restaurant.

    Either the knife is very dull or the steak is very tough by the way he was sawing through the meat.
    But if the meat is as tender as he says, even a butter knife would cut it with very little pressure. Just my observation.

    Mike, you should go to Spain. San Sebastian is second to Kyoto for the most number of Michelin stars per square mile. Spanish food is amazing, extremely amazing. As a bonus, Basque steaks are so good.
