Goat curry in Denver?

Man, I'd love me some goat curry right about now. Anyone know of any Caribbean place in town where it's available?

    There used to be a couple great Vietnamese places around Colfax and Federal back in the 80's when I lived in Denver. Yesterday, I discovered an amazing dish called De Xao Lan. It is a very spicy goat curry with lemon grass, thai or serrano peppers and other delicious bits. You should call some of the Viet places and see if they can make it for you or have it on the menu. What a dish!

      Just a note that I saw that Namaste (Meadows Shopping Center in Boulder, Baseline and Foothills) has added goat curry to their menu. I haven't tried it yet, but I should soon since I live nearby.

        I just heard word that goat'll be on the menu at Elway's during Harvest Week...actually Harvest Week's seeming like the way cooler little sib of RW.

          I FOUND SOME!

          At India's Pearl. I still want it Caribbean-style, but to find it at all, in two different versions, was sheer serendipity. Pics here.

            Glad you found it, but if it doesn't have to be curry and/or Caribbean, goat is on the April menu at Six89 in Carbondale: "MILK & HONEY ROASTED SONOMA GOAT,
            truffled chevre agnolotti, greens, charred tomato, reggiano 11"

                Another non-Caribbean goat dish will be part of Juanita's 26th anniversary feast on June 13. They occasionally offer it when they do tequile dinners and the like. See http://www.juanitas-boulder.com/index....

              I found goat curry last night at Tandoori's in south Boulder. I never would have thought to try it except for this thread and I really enjoyed it so thank you! Leftovers will make a delightful dinner this evening.

                Great! How's that place in general?

                  It's the first time I'd been but it came highly recommended by a friend who used to go there during grad school with her Indian friends. We had tandoori chicken (the best I've ever had), aloo mutter, chicken tikka masala, samosas, and keema naan amongst us and all was very good. The service was patient (our friends got caught in a dui checkpoint and delayed) and friendly and when one dish didn't come out with the rest (the goat curry!) I think our main server almost blew a gasket by the looks on his face he was not happy! I will definitely return.

              Been over a year since I have been there, I think it is still there. I am pretty sure i have seen curry goat on the menu there, but it may not be there every day. You could probably call and ask.

              I need to go to that place again. Not amazing, but pretty good.

                Does Caribbean Cuisine Plus More (East Illife, Aurora) still exist?

                    Caribbean Cuisine + is longer there, and it was never that good anyway from my personal experience, imho, although Sheehan in Westword loved it (which is how I heard about it in the first place).

                      RLM - I think that's where I heard about it too. For a while there was a Caribbean restaurant in Boulder County called I + I ( or I & I). First they were in Boulder, across the street from Liquor Mart, I think, then at locations in Nederland. Folded a couple of years ago, but I don't think they had goat curry -- and even it they did, it's too late for Tatamagouche's craving. .
