James Cochran's GOAT finds a permanent home

Chef James Cochran’s GOAT street food concept will open its first permanent site at BoxPark Croydon this summer.

The 2018 Great British Menu winner launched GOAT at Lewisham’s Model Market in May and will take up a spot in Croydon in August, according to its website.

Cochran used goat in his main dish on Great British Menu and introduced it to the menu at his 12:51 restaurant in Islington, which opened last year.

Its popularity led him to develop the street food concept, which offers barbecue Jamaican jerk spiced shoulder of goat in a flatbread with a choice of sauce and topping. Vegetarians can order coal roasted jerk spiced cauliflower, and all dishes come with coriander, corn nuts and crispy shallots.

Cochran has been working with Cabrito, which aims to get kid goats that would otherwise have been euthanized in the dairy industry in to the meat supply chain. It now supplies restaurants, butchers and caterers nationwide with what was a once wasted resource.

Cochran previously ran the James Cochran EC3 restaurant in The City, which continued to trade under his name​ after he left in early 2018. The site has since closed.
