the BEST veal chop Thu, 01/4/07 3:59 PM (permalink)
If like veal chops, I had a fabulous one at Da Dominico on Chain Bridge Road in Vienna, VA. You could cut it with a fork. This was a New Years Eve dinner so I don't know how much they charge on a regular evening for this terrific dish. The sides with it could have been better and perhaps they are on a regular evening.

        I eat veal. Do you have some sort of a problem with people eating veal?

          For some reason, the best veal chops I've eaten always seem to be at Italian restaurants.

            People still complain about people eating veal?

            Manhattan of La Jolla. Definitely not roadfood. But the best veal chop I've ever had. It's a double chop. It's wonderful.

                I have a problem with the inhumane methods of raising calves for food, therefore I have a problem with those who choose to eat veal. No problem with other types of meats.
                This seems to be a bit of an ouchy board, this is my first posting here, and I was hoping for a bit more intelligent and thoughtful type of poster profile. Guess not!

                  Yes, People still eat veal. Veal dishes are among our favorites. We love veal piccata, veal marsala, v
                  veal chops, veal parm and so many others.

                  I feel lucky as I have no problems with eating it at all. In fact, my grandchildren have a special "moo" song they sing when we have it and they have a special "Baa Baa" song to sing when we have lamb.

                  PS What is so intelligent about your post? You know very well that many people eat veal.

                    I eat veal and I wear fur.
                    But I am still a nice person!

                      Before you get into discussing intelligence, I suggest that you learn to spell the names of those with whom you exchange posts.

                      Now, you asked rhetorically whether people still eat veal. I answered you. You do not care for the way some veal operations function? OK. Would you rather the calves just be allowed to die and then be plowed under, which is what would likely happen if they were not raised for slaughter as vealers. If you do not wish to eat veal, don't. If you wanted to discuss veal you went about it in a way that invited the sort of response you received.

                      Have a lovely day.

                        I know it's been discussed before, but I think veal production gets a bad rap. The way chickens or even farm raised fish are cooped up is no better. I can understand (even though I disagree with it for me) the vegan rationalization because it holds that any animal killing or usage is not right. However, IMHO, once you go down the path there isn't much difference. New Years Eve I steamed a 5.7-lb. lobster. Honestly, I don't see thatas any different from the way veal is processed. We're just higher and the food chain and so we can decide to make that decision or not. Mermaid72, I can appreciate your feelings about it, and you have every right to decide not to consume veal. However, to put down others simply because they decide to eat something is not right. Enjoy everything you want----and let us know all about what you do enjoy.
                        And welcome to Roadfood-----we're really a pretty good bunch!

                                    As far as I can recall, a Bob veal is a calf that is under a month old.

                                        The term can be used to mean that, too. -pb

                                          Are you talking about very young calves or the actor?


                                          Actually, I was talking about unborn calf, the veal choice of the wealthy. -pb

                                          As far as I can recall, a Bob veal is a calf that is under a month old.


                                          The term can be used to mean that, too. -pb

                                          Thanks. I didn't know that.

                                            I love tiny, tasty cows. I never knew they were named Bob.

                                              Sorry my memory must be fading... Bob Veale pitched primarily for Pirates and later Red Sox in 60's and 70's (Thanks Google!)

                                                  The veal chop at Il Mulino Mulino in Greenwich Village is the best I ever had. The restaurant is a little too old-school for me (outrageous prices and preferential treatment for regulars and celebs), but the food is really top notch. DEFINITELY not Roadfood, but it's half a block away from some of the best and cheapest falafel and shwarma in NY.

                                                    Wasn't Bob Veale the guy from the home improvement show on EDTV?

                                                      I have a problem with the inhumane methods of raising calves for food, therefore I have a problem with those who choose to eat veal. No problem with other types of meats.
                                                      This seems to be a bit of an ouchy board, this is my first posting here, and I was hoping for a bit more intelligent and thoughtful type of poster profile. Guess not!

                                                        I love veal! Always have. My mother used to do a fantastic stuffed breast of veal when I was a kid. I love veal chops, parmigana, Marsala, piccata, pizziaole and my all time favorite, veal osso bucco.
                                                        Which I will be doing next month for a friends birthday party.
                                                        I have Wholefoods cut real big ones for me and tie them so they don't fall off the bone during the 2 hour braise. And, of course I do a risotto Milanese with saffron and peas to accompany the veal.

                                                          Sorry, got off the topic there.
                                                          Ok, best veal chop: Crecie's (Italian) on Lorimer St. in Brooklyn. The most incredible, tender and tasty veal chop pizziaole.
