Get Your Goat

1. Across the Street
Grab a spot on the patio or by the outdoor bar to enjoy this Mexi spot’s goat cheese enchiladas—a puddle of black beans surrounds corn tortillas stuffed with mango chunks and goat cheese, with mango salsa and sprinkled goat cheese on top. ¡Muy bien! $12, 668 Highland Ave. NE, 404.781.0931

2. The Porter Beer Bar
If you’re not aware that beer and cheese are a match made in heaven, this L5P haunt’s crispy goat cheese fritters with cracked black pepper and clover honey will make you a believer. Bonus: The bar recommends pairing this starter with Highland Brewing Company’s Gaelic ale for max deliciousness. $7, 1156 Euclid Ave. NE, 404.223.0393

3. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
This sweet shop has become an insta-fave around town, thanks to its inventive flavors and unexpected combos, like their goat cheese and red cherries ice cream. Ohio-based Mackenzie Creamery goat cheese is mixed with tart roasted cherries for a rich and tasty result that we can’t stop scooping. $12 for a pint, 1198 Howell Mill Road, 404.355.6050

4. Leon’s Full Service
Leon’s offers 14 dipping sauces in say-what flavors to complement their fresh, house-cut fries, including a creamy housemade goat cheese fondue. It’s the perfect beginning to your meal, or a welcome addition to your craft brew. $7, 131 E. Ponce De Leon Ave., Decatur, 404.687.0500

5. Barcelona Wine Bar
We understand—with so many tapas options at this sexy-chic wine bar, it can be hard to decide. But consider this: Their mushroom and herbed goat cheese tapa, complete with a balsamic reduction, is popular enough to snag a spot on their brunch, dinner and late-night menus. We’re sold. $9, 240 North Highland Ave. NE, 404.589.1010
