It taste's like Goat. Seriously though it is like no other meat you may have eaten. The nearest I could get to an example would be if you took lamb and then try to imagine that taste ten times stronger you would be near the mark. I love it, not to mention good strong Goats cheese.

Getting back on track, i would say it tastes like lamb but much stronger. We tried it many years ago in a remote restaurant which used almond shells as fuel for the oven and barbecue, of course this had an effect on the flavour.

Thumbs up baby Goat

I had this in Zarzales restaurant and it tastes is quite delicate, unlike mature goat which has a strong flavour. As in lamb the the older the animal the stronger the flavour.

I agree, suckling lamb tastes even more delicate and the same goes for suckling pig.

We had goat many times in India where it is described as mutton.(different to our understanding of mutton). It does have a strong flavour and as you
might expect it is rather tough. It is not to my liking.

Why then did we have it many times? Simple reason - there was nothing else available, and I mean nothing!

India was not one of our gastronomic successes.
