"Greedy Girl Eats"
The Second Stop! This month on Greedy girl eats its all about curried goat. In Jamaica our motto is out of many one people and for good reason. After slavery ended droves of Indians came to the country as indentured laborers. Thy did not leave behind their food. The curry as we know it today is a fusion of traditional Indian curry with Jamaican flavors. I will be visiting 8 restaurants across the island and sampling their curry goat. The month ends with a home made version honing in the best of all I taste.
"When goat meat done, a wa curry a go do?" -Miss Lou
We curry any and everything, oxtail, chicken, fish, even curried vegetables and chick peas. Goat however is the most traditional thing to curry. Mutton has a distinct flavor and when curried with the added spices it can be the most delicious thing paired with some soft and fluffy white rice or better yet some well made roti.
The Second dining experience takes place at little curry goat joint in the midst of Holland Bamboo
Name:Holland bamboo Curry goat Restaurant
...so how was it?
Seasoning: 7 Seasoned well, very spicy, (heavy on the black pepper) but needed more curry flavor for me
Ram goat taste: 6 the goat flavor was not as distinct and strong as I would have liked it
Tenderness: 9 perfectly cooked super tender with nicely sized pieces of goat
Bones: 10 The size of the meat was not too small not too big and therefor the bones were bigger and much easier to manage not small and splintery
Overall taste: 7 Was quite delicious and I would order it again
Hiccups: 0 Yay they serve roti and the roti was absolutely outstanding!!!!
Total score 39/50 or 78%
- Don't bother coming here if you are not in the mood for goat or chicken. The only thing they serves is curry goat, curry chicken and fried chicken.
Remember this review is JUST for the Curry Goat, not for their entire menu.
