From mid-October the horned mammal that is the goat will be making its way from the rural green pastures to the steel and concrete city of London. Its final destination will be Goat House at Viet Grill in Shoreditch. There the ever-gnawing vertebrate will mix with salad, swim in curry and be on the receiving end of a Vietnamese steamboat.
The popularity of goat is growing exponentially hence this pop-up response. Goat House is the first all-goat restaurant and will run for a month. The basement eatery will offer guests a feasting menu inspired from rural feasting traditions representing authentic and delicious goat dishes commonly found in cities and villages throughout Vietnam. The menu begins with a citrus cured goat salad and moves onto a warming goat curry. That’s followed by BBQ goat chops before finishing with the steamboat centrepiece; a simmering pot of broth infused with spices and hunks of slow cooked goat.
The feasting theme is rounded off with alcohol. Viet Grill’s downstairs bar Little Red Staircase will be knocking up 5 cocktails to choose from and there will be a range of craft beer available. Who thought goat could be the source of so much enjoyment?
Goat House will be running every Wednesday and Thursday from the 19th October until the 17th November.
