Yes, I took a bite on the wild side recently with this fried garlicky crocodile meat. It was actually a dare from a friend while we were getting a little tipsy on SMB Light, sisig, calamari and baked oysters. Why not try something different? So there---fried crocodile with blue cheese dip for pulutan. Crocodile meat is light-flavored so the garlic and blue cheese dip were probably a great idea to add flavor.
The bar manager told me they got their crocodile meat from Morong, Rizal---I didn't know there's a crocodile farm in Morong, do you?. Let me assure you that this was before the recent crocodile attack in Palawan.:p
Compared to other meats and if well-trimmed, crocodile is low in fat, low in calories and high in protein, and is considered as a good source of niacin and Vitamin B12. In Australia, crocodile carpaccio is pretty popular as well as crocodile rolls, known to the Japanese as Wani Rolls.
