Goat House @ Viet Grill, Shoreditch.  Until Mid-November

In case you hadn't noticed, Goat is fast becoming the meat to eat.  Far tastier then lamb, the meat is particularly delicious when load up with spices so it's well worth heading down to the Goat House pop-up @ Viet Grill.  £30 gets you a five-course feast, including Satay marinated goat chops, an amazing coconut & goat curry, and an almighty finish of a Goat Steamboat - essentially, a huge broth loaded with slow-cooked meat, veg and super-fresh herbs.  Grab a couple of cocktails designed by the bar team at Little Red Staircase and life doesn't better!
