This is the second time I've been served a feedlot (i.e. grain fed) entrecote steak in Montevideo. A worrying sign, given how spectacular the grass-fed steaks are. More worrying is that the restaurant does not declare it on the menu.

How to spot one? Take a look at the attached photo. Feedlot steaks usually look great. They are uniform. Grass-fed entrecote are irregular. The proof is in the texture and taste. Feedlot steaks are chewy and don't have the same delicious taste of grass-fed beef. In fact they are tasteless - the main reason why abroad you usually are served steak with a sauce that disguises the (lack of) flavour. The fat in them is also not easily digested so there's also the tell-tale feeling of the steak lying heavy in the stomach for hours after the meal, something which you don't get if the steak is from a grass-fed cow. Sitting here now, enjoying tje dessert, an apple pancake that is fabulous, knowibg that I'm going to have that heavy sensation all afternoon.

A shame, because the place is great and my waiter wad ver friendly. That steak, though, means I can't give this place more than one star.
