Good Goat Curry and Roti: Kaieteur, Liberty Ave. Lefferts
- jonkyo Jul 5, 2014 09:49 PM
120-04 Liberty Ave, Richmond Hill, just one block from Liberty and Lefferts.
The goat meat was substantially present, with much meat and no skimping. It was not chewy at all, so delicious, with very minute bone-age.
One quarter cut of potato was accompanying the curry, as opposed to more potato and other vegetables that some venues used to skimp on the more costly meat.
Better curry than I can find at Indian places. This is Guyanese, and the very professional and busy staff serve with fastidious attention to all customers.
The roti, was so good.
I washed it all down with Bud, at the cost of 3 dollars a bottle.
This is the more tame place, as other venues on the strip here are bars for socializing, watching cricket, and drinking. Those places are nice too. They are just more similar to bar atmosphere, with nice Soca music and Bollywood soundtracks continuously playing.
This one is more eating and you can bring your mother and father, grand parents, or former kindergarten teacher.
The neighboring table had a bag of Burger King take out, as they devoured some awesome food from this Kaieteur Restaurant.
I found this wonderful, for the difference between the take out in that bag, obviously for someone else, other than these other customers, and the plates on all the tables, was utterly night and day.
The curry list includes beer, lamb, goat, chicken, snapper, duck, something called curry gillbacker, shrimp. Daal is only 3 dollars a nice sized bowl and is so delicious.
The curry is under West Indian Menu, on the menu. Roti is west indie kind, just as one knows it. Made fresh.
Chinese West Indian Food has quite the offerings on the menu, and I saw these so delicious looking dishes arrived from the kitchen to tables nearby. Fried rice, a long list of so diverse apps, from fried red snapper, to Banga Mary (small fishes deep fried), to roast duck and jerk pork. 28 appetizers in all.
This is on the south side of the street, going north east up Liberty, just the first block beyond Lefferts....maybe the second.
sounds nice. there are some good places out that way.
gillbacker, by the way, is a little like catfish, a little like swai. i'm not sure if it's farmed or caught...i'm pretty sure it's the former. the couple of times i've had it, i liked it, aside from the skin -- in a curry, the only way i've had it, it took on an unappealing texture, almost like a layer of fat, or jelly.
"a layer of fat, or jelly.", That is good added information. Thanks. I have not had this gillbacker. Fat and jelly do have appeal to some.
The fish and seafood in these places are plentiful on the menu, and it is a shame I typically order land mammalians when I am in the area.
The duck curry a friend had. Different curry sauce, and much bone, though not skimping on meat at all, just requires use of hands to eat.
"The curry list includes beer, lamb, goat, chicken, snapper, duck, something called curry gillbacker, shrimp. Daal is only 3 dollars a nice sized bowl and is so delicious."
That is BEEF AS FROM COW, and not "beer".
I read this, over and don't know how that 'r' appeared. I can type, and spell.
But this brings me to an important point I forgot to mention. The beer I saw about was Coors light, Heineken and Bud.
I just quickly ordered the beer, and was concentrating on the food. Often in these places from 104 on up beyond this venue, they also carry Trinidad beer, and more from the Caribbean.
You might ask for my favorite Trinidad beer which is Royale Stout.
"The neighboring table had a bag of Burger King take out, as they devoured some awesome food from this Kaieteur Restaurant. "
You can see the Burger King take out bag in the third photo. Burger King is just two doors down.
"the difference between the take out in that bag...... and the plates on all the tables, was utterly night and day.
oh, also, for those requiring more than Bud at a meal, these places on Liberty from 104, and up, have Mackeson, brewed in Trinidad, and label same.
