goat meat anywhere to be found?
We're just back from a cooking adventure in Zakynthos. Greece. We fell in love with stewed goat, the adult, not the kid, which we found too boney and less flavorsome. We're in Berkeley, but are willing to go to great lengths. The butcher at Piedmont Market (who used to raise goats) thought there may be a Mexican butcher in Concord. Can you help? Many thanks...
No need to leave Berkeley. I buy goat from my favorite halal butcher, Indus Foods on San Pablo a block and a half north of University. Try the lamb, too, great value.
Good prices on all sorts of other eats from Muslim countries: olive oil, pomegranate molasses, lebne, ajvar, Turkish pepper paste, etc. etc.

Is Indus Foods different from Halal Food Market?

A lady at my bank told me that the Pakistani restaurant Kabana offers good goat curry as weekend specials. Also, you can buy goat meat at Halal Food Market (San Pablo & University), freshly delivered on Wednesdays. (Possibly some other day too, but she wasn't sure about that.)

A review of Kabana from a while ago: (it mentions goat curry)
Farther afield, there's a samoan bodega in Menlo Park on Willow near the Mi Rancho mexican market with a small sign in the window saying they can get fresh, whole goat on a few day's notice.
Could be an adventure.

Here are some of the places I have personally bought goat meat from:
* Chavez Supermarket, in Sunnyvale
Of all the places I have bought goat meat from, this has been by far the best.
* Bangla Bazar, Sunnyvale
Quality -- not bad.
* Rose Internal Market, Mountain View
The goat meat over here used to be really good quality until about 2-3 years back, when it went downhill. I havent bought goat from them in a while, so dont know if they have improved or not.
* Fresh Meat Seafood Market, 2704 Mission St, (at 23rd St), San francisco
Quality -- Not bad
* Belmar-La Gallinita Meat Market, 2889 24th St (at Harrison), San Francisco
Quality -- not bad.
All of these places sell frozen meat. I am yet to find a local places selling fresh goat meat.
