Our last day in Florence, after some early morning wanderings, we knew we had time before our train left. We originally wanted to eat at Mario (a highly recommended place), but there was a wait of at least 30 min. We ain't got time for that! So, we decided to wander around, looking for local hole in the wall type places, and stumbled upon Trattoria La Burrasca. Upon entering, we knew we wanted to try the Florentine Steak.
It is a small restaurant, with maybe 10 tables max. When we arrived, there was only one table in the restaurant. Upon looking at the menu (apparently the specials change daily), we were thinking of just sharing everything, so we were going to get the steak, and a pasta dish. The server, however, was very adamant that we not mix the pasta with steak, so we opted for a few sides instead. And obvs, we had some chianti and acqua. The steak is 35€ per kg, and as we had 3, we would received a 1.5kg steak. The waiter also did warn us that the steak is cooked rare, but it ain't no thang. They brought out the uncooked steak to show us what it'll look like, which got us hyped for it. Our sides came out, and were a little salty, but we only cared about the steak.
The steak came out, and was humongous. Imagine 3 tiny Asian girls trying to tackle this steak. Somehow, we were able to devour it, it was that good. The meat was super tender, the seasonings super tasty, and the rareness of the steak didn't hinder it at all. As we were finishing, we noticed a able of 2 guys gawking at our finished steak, I'd like to think that seeing us table it pushed them to order the steak as well. Definitely a hidden gem in Florence!
