Very weird gazpacho!

Had this in a restaurant in Bordeaux the other day. I really like gazpacho, but it came with small slices of what looked like virtually raw veal on top!

Honestly, WTF? Has anyone else come across similar?
BiL who was with us is a very Francophile, bilingual foodie who’s lived in France, and still spends much of the year there, and even he was nonplussed.

I don’t eat veal anyway, and certainly didn’t fancy this. BiL said his was too tough to eat anyway - isn’t veal supposed to be very tender?
The actual gazpacho was nice, though!

I haven't heard of this.
Was it definitely veal?

Yes, definitely. We asked.

I'm grateful to have not run into such a gazpacho in my life so far...

Indeed.
Does not sound delicious, I agree
