Dish of the week: Goat sliders

These goat sliders deliver juicy, gamy flavor wrapped in puffed naan ($12). Flecks of roasted jalapeno put their aggressive stamp on charred patties the size of smashed golf balls, with pickled white onions adding pucker to the flavorful sandwich. Crumbled feta ($2 extra) tempers the sliders salty sting. I eat the garnish of fresh greens and tomatoes separately as a side salad, allowing the goat to shine with little adornment. My only complaint: I wish I got three little sliders instead of two for that price.
