Horse Meat Markets and Restaurants

After New Years Day we found ourselves joining our friend Maria in Catania for a meal of horse and donkey meat. She took us to a street that boasted half-a-dozen macellerie equina e trattorie, "horse meat butchers and restaurants."
On the street and sidewalks butchers displayed their meats while cooks prepared meals on outdoor grills. People young and old, most arriving on motorcycles, pulled up and ordered dinner.
Some stood and ate on the street, others sat at tables on the sidewalk. We went inside to enjoy our meal.
