Lobey Fritay

From thick chunks of goat and plump beef sausage to the fried plantains and vinegary pikliz, this meat-heavy dish is a must-order. Our favorite part is the tender goat that’s been cubed, braised, and fried to perfection. It tastes like it’s been marinating in a pool of onions and lime juice for several years, and we wish all meat were given this kind of careful treatment.

Plantain Submarine

Zanmi serves plantain as a side for several of its dishes, but here, the starchy fruit gets some time alone in the spotlight. This dish consists of three stacked plantain slices, garnished with fresh cod, peppers, and creamy mayo. We’ve never had anything like it.

Here, goat meat is grilled and tossed in a bowl of peppers, onions, and cilantro. Each chunk is juicy, spicy, and crispy. Order this if you want to lie awake at night thinking about a plate of lean red meat.
