It's The Five Days of Meat, so it's time to shed a little light on a protein that goes mostly unappreciated in American cuisine: goat. The lean, gamey meat can be found frequently in Indian and Caribbean cuisine, among others, and around these parts, its prevalence skews heavily into Somerville and Dorchester. From curry to roti, vindaloo to stew, here are a bunch of places to get your goat on around the Boston area. Comment below if we've missed any of your favorites.
