Mexico/Nuevo Leon: Monterrey – El Rey del Cabrito Restaurant

No visit to Monterrey is complete without a dinner at the iconic and world-famous El Rey del Cabrito restaurant. Grilled goat is a specialty of Nuevo León and Monterrey and no place makes it better, since 1909. Whole baby goats are splayed over hot coals and slow roasted for hours – it’s absolutely delicious! The main course is just a choice of cut of the whole goat – chest, shoulders, leg, or intestines (we tried chest and shoulder – the juiciest parts). But before that we had an appetizer of the entire goat head – brains, eyes, tongues, and all! Best meal in Mexico so far!
