FG Kambingan restobar is a new restaurant in Bacolod that serves goat dishes! Goat is considered to be a delicacy in the Philippines and various areas in the Philippines have their own traditional methods of cooking goat. What’s so good about goat? Well, goat is considered to be leaner and higher in protein than pork and beef. The only problem that goat has is that the meat of older goats have a certain distinct musky taste that some people don’t find appealing at all.
FG Kambingan just opened last May 27, 2017 and is now an extremely popular spot with locals.
The interior of FG Kambingan is air-conditioned and clean. The design of the room is one big rectangular area with the kitchen located at the sides. Big windows provide a lot of natural light to the diners while the orientation ensures that the sun never shines directly into the restaurant (which will make it hot.).
FG Kambingan has the following items on their menu which is one of the most extensive goat related menu that I’ve ever seen. All of these are made with goat meat.
- Crispy Tapa
- Litson Kambing
Unfortunately only three dishes were available when we visited. The waiter told us that they had ran out! Oh well, we settled for the three dishes that they had. We ordered Paklay, Adobong Kanding and Kaldereta
The servings were quite generous however since goat meat is naturally very bony – 40% of the dishes contents were bones. It comes as no surprise to the seasoned diner but people new to eating goat might be caught unawares.
FG Kambingan’s goat adobo was generously sized with a few bones. The goat meat was softer than beef and pork adobo and not as oily. This is a good dish for first timers to try goat meat. Its simplicity allows the diners to experience the texture and flavor of the meat.
The Goat kaldereta was very tasty! Kaldereta is a spicy stew of meat and vegetables in tomato sauce that is slowly simmered for hours allowing the meat to cook slowly and tenderize. This is the most common way to prepare goat and is a familiar dish to most Filipinos.
Paklay is a dish made from the innards of the goat. This version of Paklay uses tomato sauce and has strips of ginger and carrots in it. It is also a kind of a stew. The main draw of Paklay is the texture of the dish as well as the savory taste of the liver and the intestines. FG kambingan serves a very tasty and generously sized dish.
Come and Visit FG Kambingan. The restaurant is clean and and can accommodate large groups. They also say that goat meat is an aphrodisiac so if ever you feel the need for some “stimulation” try the delicious dishes at FG Kambingan.
