Where to find goat in Columbus, OH?

I am hot to trot for some goat. The only place I have found it in C-bus is at Darbo (http://www.chowhound.com/topics/381085), so I figured I'd release the hounds. Any ideas? Surely there are some Indian places that serve it?

As for purchasing goat to cook yourself, it is allegedly available at Istanbul Market in Bethel Center (at Godown) on the weekends, although I've never been in luck. I have seen Indian people in there trying to get it, and people working there have assured me it's there. (There is some in the freezer, but it's a little raggedy, in contrast to everything else in there.) I'll see if I can't score this weekend, but if you know of any other quality sources, let us know.

    Sher-E-Punjab in kenny Centre Mall has goat for special occasion buffets. I remember it was there for Mother's Day. It is worth checking out. I love that place and eat there all the time, but I don't think they have goat on their regular menu.

      I have really been meaning to check this place out. Anything I can't afford to pass up?

      Also, while they definitely don't serve goat, Dosa Corner (on Old Henderson across Kenny from Kenny Center) is the bomb. Just thought I'd throw that out.

      And to duncanfj: thanks, I will investigate next time I'm there.

        I think their buffet is always great, but you should know that they have the buffet every lunch and dinner on weekdays, but on Friday and Saturday nights they go to the regular menu at their place 2 doors down. I love the usuals - saag paneer and the samosas, as well as the chicken tikka masala. You need to let them know if you want the food pretty hot, because there are mostly Indian customers there and I think they make it milder if you're not Indian. I have to try Dosa Corner - I've been meaning to for years! Maybe this weekend!

          I went yesterday, and it was very good. Plenty of good sauces/chutneys to spice stuff up, and everything was tasty. The salty lassi was one of the better ones I've had -- very creamy. They also had cricket on, which was great, except they close from 3:00 until dinner, so I only got to see the beginning of Ireland's run chase before they gave me the heave-ho. It would be nice if you could sit around and suck a beer or two while watching cricket.

      You can also buy goat from Bluescreek Farms in the North Market. I bought some loin chops from them a couple of weeks back.
