Just finished off the leftovers from some takeout fried goat with sauce I got the other evening. Based on this admittedly small sample, I'd say good not great, but I'll be back. According to a Harvard Crimson interview helpfully posted on the wall, the menu is more a list of what they might have than what's actually on offer, and goat often isn't (it depends on the market), but I lucked out. My plate consisted of a VAST portion of rice with little red beans (2 meals later I still have a lot), a respectable pile of fried goat pieces, a token iceberg-cuke-tomato salad, and a couple tough slices of fried green plaintain ($8.40). They give you a choice of meat with or without sauce--take the sauce. (Warning: the sauce comes separately in a small plastic cup w/lid, and poses transport problems.) Next time I will take the trouble to combine meat and sauce and simmer it a few minutes. The meat was a bit chewy but the flavor was good, especially in the very savory sauce (onions, peppers, tomatoes, ??? not spicy, on the salty side). The restaurant is on Mass. Ave. just outside Davis, in the White Hen Pantry block.
