Goat Meat Delights

The 11th Zhangze Goat Meat Culture Festival has opened in Songjiang’s Yexie Town and will last till October 10. It’s a tradition among Zhangze people to eat a plate of nutritious pulpy goat meat while drinking a cup of spirits during the dog days of summer. To honor the tradition, a goat meat culture festival was launched in 2009. Among the three signature goat meat dishes in the Zhangze area — pulpy goat meat, salted goat meat slice and goat meat soup — pulpy goat meat earns the most acclaim for its balanced mixture of skin and meat, its slippery and soft taste and its immediate melting in the mouth.

Date: Through October 10
