I'm vegan so I had no idea what this was. I looked it up and saw its def a meat eater's dream. Cachopo is a dish characteristic to Asturian cuisine. It consists of two large veal fillets and includes ham and cheese. The dish is eaten fried and hot.

This looks really yummy but heavy. Is this a traditional meal in Australia?

It sounds like a carnivore’s dream: two steaks, sandwiched together with cheese and a slice of ham, all coated in bread crumbs and fried up into a gooey, meaty plateful.

It sounds like a carnivore’s dream: two steaks, sandwiched together with cheese and a slice of ham, all coated in bread crumbs and fried up into a gooey, meaty plateful. This is cachopo, one of the signature dishes of Asturias, a province on the wild north coast of Spain (from where, incidentally, Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso and FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique hail).

I stopped eating meat a while ago but I may have to come out retirement for this. I wonder how much does it cost? Has anyone tried it yet?

I became a vegetarian around the time KFC released the double down. I'm not anymore, and can't wait to taste this!

Restaurants in the regional capital, Oviedo, serve excellent classic cachopos – the house cachopo at Casa Pedro on Calle Asturias costs €20 and would feed two. Or there are variations on the theme at Sidrería El Gato Negro on central Plaza Trascorrales, where cachopo can also come stuffed with mushrooms, bacon, red pepper and cheese, washed down, of course, with a glass of the locally made natural sidra (cider), the region’s traditional drink.

On energetic Calle Gascona, otherwise called juice lane, local people, and sightseers can be seen handling chops and other local specialties – ideal for dosing up the liquor – while servers pour juice from a tallness of about a meter, to circulate air through the drink and upgrade its flavor. It's a sustenance and drink coordinate made in paradise.
