Flames II, Electric Boogaloo

Well that's almost the dance I did after chowing down on some excellent curried goat there last night. Not too many bones, but enough to know the sure-footed beast had been stewed bone-in, which makes an eater have to be a bit careful about chomping down too hard. The medium was served with rice and beans, plus a small side of cooked cabbage two hunks of yams (they didn't taste like plain sweet potatoes). Sitting down at home eating that plate with a beer was about as good as it gets in my opinion. For curried goat eats in this area, Flames is top notch at a little under $9. I think the secret, which I will work on in the future, is to get the guy to pour some of the extra sauce (which has a small kick, like a little frog, not like a mule kick or anything) over the rice and beans. So good.

Oh, I've basically started stalking them about conch fritters. If they're going to have them, it's usually on a Sunday or Monday night. It appears that their nightly menu is more happenstance as opposed to having any rhyme or reason.
