The Florida Chronicles Part 2:The Meal

Gator Appetizer. Followed by fried shrimp, fried fish, fried scallops with a side of fried okra and fried hush puppies.

The alligator tasted like a cross between chicken and oysters with an amphibian aftertaste. You can see why this dish never took off in the rest of the country.

oh my poor friend, you just have not had it prepared properly...if you ever make it to New Orleans please come to Cochon and you will have the most mouthwatering fried alligator you never could have imagined where it comes lightly bathed in a chili garlic aioli.....ny times didn't rank it 3rd best new restaurant for nothing.....seriously...check it out.
