cheap lamb/goat curry ?
Hi there.... i am looking for cheap places that offer goat or lamb curry.... right now the only place i know is Hawkers on main which is fantastic. 9.50$ for lamb curry with rice and big portions,.... i live in the west end.... anything a bit closer?
Try the Ethiopian places on Broadway on either side of Fraser (Fassil, Red Sea).
Yeah, Hawker's lamb curry w. rice is dang good. Do you believe it used to be $6 ?!? I was shocked at their recent "big" price hike to $9.50.
Some of the Cantonese/Singaporean restos do very decent coconut milk-based curries and if you request, they can substitute lamb for beef brisket. Mui Garden is one example.
Don't forget E. Indian restos. One of my faves is a little hole-in-wall dive on Fraser @ 51 Ave, called New Novelty Sweets & Restaurant. The $8 lunch buffet doesn't offer goat, although the butter chicken is v. good ..... I just had it yesterday :-) Goat is offered off the menu. This tiny place makes their foods with TLC, resists the heavy-handed salt dumps into the dishes, and brings you a big basket of fresh hot naan with each meal.
Other good Indian places where I've had lamb/goat curries are:
- Mezbaan on Kingsway between Tyne and Boundary Rd
- Chutney Villa, Broadway btwn Quebec and Main
- Saffron, Kingsway btwn Olive & Wilson (Burnaby)
- Jambo Grill, Kingsway just west of Joyce
