Hubby and I both didn’t enjoy our lunches and thought of having a Take 2 when we passed by a restaurant. Initially, we just wanted something light. But their meals looked appetizing so we decided to eat full meals ‘again’….
Me: What’s the difference between Croc Tapa and Beef Tapa (Cured Beef)?
Waiter: Croc Tapa is Crocodile meat.
Me: Excuse me?
Waiter: Crocodile meat.
I am not very adventurous but since I was with Hubby he urged me to try it! I realized I’ve actually had Bbq alligator before when I was in Papua New Guinea. I forgot what it was like but from what I recall it’s pretty much like chicken.
I had Croc Tapa. While Hubby had Croc Wali (or the equivalent of Lechon Kawali or Fried Pork).
They have sausages, sisig, bicol express and they also sell fillets. Fillets would be about Php600 (USD45) per kilo.
I don’t know much about its nutritional content but according to them, it has lower fat and cholesterol content and has higher protein compared to chicken breast or beef sirloin.
PS: After our meal hubby asked if crocodile meat was ok for a pregnant woman. I never thought of that.. I don’t know! Haha.. nothing happened after I had them so I guess it was ok. Would you know?
