Goat Curry at Marigold in Palo Alto-superb

Marigold on University has really flavorful and well priced Indian, (esp compared with the insipid choice you can find around Univerity ave normally). I especially love their papadums which are chock full of toasted whole cumin seeds and have a little hint of cayenne. It's a great place for a reasonably priced fast or slow meal, especially because they're hardly ever completely full and I've never experienced a wait (althought it probably should be more popular than it is). Another plus is that they're open fairly late.

The goat curry was in a very thick, dark, slightly sweetish sauce. It'd obviously been stewing for a very long time because the meat was succulent and not gamy at all. The best part, to me, of this dish was that the meat was still on the bone. All the flavor was there, and there were tons of nooks and crannies of pungent sauce for me to dig out. It'd been stewed so that most of the marrow had fallen out to incorporate into the rich sauce, but there were a few bones with delicious, glutinous marrow still intact.

Anyone know of any other goat dishes near the Palo Alto area for this goat newbie to try out?
