Edmonton-looking for fresh goat meat

There's a halal butcher on the corner of 97th St and 107 Ave who has fresh goat meat, and great fresh lamb too.

Looking for Great Thai Food (Edmonton)

It's been a couple of years because I usually cook my own Thai food, but Bua Thai on 113th off Jasper is excellent Thai food and they use as fresh of ingredients as available in Edmonton. However that comes with a price. Viphalay is not bad but some of their base sauces seem canned. Syphay on Calgary trail is nice if you want some Lao versions (read - Issan Plateau/Changmai), but it's not great for ambiance - same goes for Boualouang on 97 St, though it has nicer ambiance now. Thai Valley is also good. Edmonton has among the worst Thai places I've ever encountered anywhere - the King & I. Just really insipid versions meant to not offend even the most vanilla palettes, even after we specifically asked for it spiced up - repeatedly! Lots to choose from at least.
