Curried goat?

  • f

Hi all,

I'm kind of a neophyte in terms of caribbean cuisine. Can someone tell me where in this city can I find the best (or at least a really good) curried goat dish? I had this at the Ex a few years back and also at the Ackee Tree at the Eaton Centre. I just want to know where i should go for a really good curried goat and caribbean food experience. Id the real Jerk the place to go or is there any other place that is better?

      The type of curry used varies among the different Caribbean countries. You may find that Trinidadian and Guyanese curry goat uses a stronger curry flavouring than the Jamaican version.

      Here are some Caribbean restaurants that may help satisfy your curry goat cravings :

      Real Jerk, 709 Queen St - which you already mentioned - Jamaican

      Coconut Grove, 183 Dundas West - Guyanese

      Drupatee's Roti Shop - Albion Road, just east of Islington - Trinidadian

      Alima's Roti & Pastries - 13 Kenview Blvd. Unit 49
      Brampton - Trinidadian & Guyanese

      The link below has a longer list. Look under "Ontario Roti Shops". Be aware that some of these establishments are very basic in terms of ambience and furnishings. Many are cafeteria-style or take-out only.

      Happy eating.

        Thanks a bunch! I knew i'd get an answer.

    2. My favourite is D&D Trini Style. It is located on the North side of Gerrard, 1/2 block west of Greenwood.
