Best Goat 

Sweet Fingers

Jamaican chefs have been seasoning their dishes with curry ever since East Indian indentured servants brought their culinary talents to the island in the 19th century. Goat, a signature element of Jamaican cuisine, was one tasty result of all this culinary cross-pollination, and today curry goat is as ubiquitous an island delicacy as ackee and pepperpot. Here in the Bay Area we don't have that same tropical devotion to fresh goatmeat, but Sweet Fingers' curry goat is something special. The rich, hearty (and relatively low-fat) meat is more reminiscent of fresh lamb than the gamy old critter you might have expected, and it's stewed until absolutely lush and tender, with creamy chunks of peppery carrot and tomato nestled alongside. Following the Jamaican model, the curry itself is spicy but not as incendiary as the Indian variety (save the occasional jolt from an errant minced pepper) and comes with rice and beans and wonderfully silky fried plantains, a perfect foil for the peppery goat. The Red Stripe's nice too, and so is the live reggae on Saturday nights.
