I've had alligator 3 times in the last month.. It seems to be an appetizer everywhere now
It tastes like nothing... Its all the spices they dip it in before they deep fry it.. It could be anything really..
I'd say it taskes like rubbery chicken, or popcorn buffalo chicken. Its prepared the same way.
I'm quite sure I like them alive much better.
You should have seen the look on the waiters face when I asked to see the CITES permit for his appetizers.
