Culinary no-no #375

Culinary no-no's


First time I tried it was here…

Narcoosee's at the Grand Floridian Resort at Walt Disney World.

Served with their bread at dinner were a few spreadables.  One was fiery orange and the waitress happily explained it was an alligator pate.

Specialized, regional fare. This must be good, I thought, or at least worth exploration.

It was delicious. Had a salami-like taste, I’m sure due to the seasoning and not the gator.

Social media informs the pate was discontinued long time ago.

I recalled that spread the next occasion I ate alligator, this time at a seafood restaurant off of Water Street in downtown Milwaukee that is now Rudy’s Mexican Restaurant. The alligator was deep-fried and served as an appetizer like chicken strips. Again, delicious.

I’d be adventurous with alligator in the future. But what about frog legs?

Python fillets?

Swamp cabbage?

Swamp cabbage is the round stuff.

Time to summon that occasional Culinary no-no philosopher for some cool advice.

Separate? AYYYY!

Python pizza

You'll note the frog legs still have the bones.

Oh, I'm sure he'd go ape for a pie.

Cue the not-so appetizing video…

By the way, that’ll set you back $45Read why and what their next off the wall idea is.


No way, Jose!
