"Greedy Girl Eats"
The Third 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 third dining experience takes place at Homar's Roti
Name: Homar's Roti and Grill
...so how was it?
Seasoning: 10 the perfect curry flavor, spicy, flavorful up!
Ram goat taste: 7 the goat meat flavor was good but not strong as I would have liked it
Tenderness: 6 there were a few very chewy pieces of meat however majority of it was tender
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: 9 Was quite delicious and I would order it again
Hiccups: 0 Yay they serve roti !!!!
Total score 42/50 or 84%
