Borough Market street-food stall, serving Mediterranean-style slow-roasted goat meat, cooked with white wine, herbs and olive oil
Joining the many street-food stalls at Borough Market, Gourmet Goat is a takeaway with no seats, so you'll be eating on the hoof.
Kid tastes more delicate than mature goat, and if you didn’t know, you’d think it was lamb. This place makes its name from offering terrific value slow-roasted kid, cooked Mediterranean-style, with oregano, bay leaves, olive oil and white wine.
The meat is low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Some also consider it to be one of the more ethical options if you’re a meat eater. These billy goats (from Cabrito Goat Meat in the west of England) are a by-product of the dairy industry and would otherwise be slaughtered soon after birth. They are raised responsibly and get a longer, more enjoyable lease of life.
Take your pick from two serving options: in a pitta bread wrap, or in a takeaway carton without bread – both are terrific value. The meat comes with organic whole wheat dressed in zingy pomegranate molasses, a dollop of dense tzatziki, and a spinach and radish garnish.
