Original Recipe

Curry Goat

Not for the faint-hearted – this Caribbean classic comes with an unapologetic kick! Succulent goat on the bone, marinated for 24 hours and cooked with potatoes in a delectable Caribbean curry sauce. Traditionally enjoyed with white rice, rice & peas or roti but, as we’re West to West, we would also recommend you mix it up and try curry goat with Sierra Leonean Jollof rice.
