Hi,

Could anyone point me in the right direction for buying goat meat in Bangkok. I will be staying in the area close to the British embassy. So somewhere close to there would be great.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Most fresh markets in Moslem areas have it. Unfortunately, that means it's halal.

It's definitely available at Bang Rak Market near the Baan Uu mosque. Close to BTS Saphan Thaksin (but I think that BTS station may now be closed).

Alternatively, you could ask Moslem restaurants in your area where they get their meat from. It might be more local to you.

Thanks...and in Chiang Mai?....aside from trying to chat-up a Moslem on the street and asking, anyone know if there are any CLEAN sellers of Goat Meat which is great in Curries.

whistling.gif I doubt you can find this anywhere in Bangkok, but in Italian baby Goat meat is called Capretto.

As with Veal which is young cows you only need one male for many females in a herd, baby Male Goats are often slaughtered very young and young Goat meat, Capretto, is considered a delicacy as is Veal.

Most calves born are roughly 50-50 male and female

But as I said both Cattle and Goats need far more females than males in a herd to maintain the herd, few young male Goats or calves survive their first few months, but they end up as Veal or Capretto.in the supermarket freezer.

I spent lots of time on Sumatra in the mid-1990's where satay kambing or goat-on-skewers was a big deal. The goats there were pygmy goats not the full-size goat.

went on holliday to the greek island of kos,gee wiz they know how to cook goat and lamb.couldnt tell the difference.

the wife only knew when she counted the number of goats in the field by our appartment.there's one missing she said,yep we had it for dinner.
