Alligator For Dinner

By May 22, 2008

Follow me on:

I am down in Florida for some vacation time and we're heading to the Atlantic shores from the Gulf coast. We were craving some Korean food yesterday, so we used my laptop and wireless anywhere access to locate one that wasn't too far away. It was sort of late, so the small restaurant was filled with happy drunken Korean businesspeople and two large tour groups that seemed to have the same craving that we did. The one unfamiliar thing on the menu was Gator Bulgogi, the restaurant's special barbecued gator tail. I've had fried alligator tail, which is very tender and mild, so I can imagine how it makes for a delicious Korean-American-Floridian dish. We were more in the mood for the familiar than the new at the time, but we're going to make the effort to try it before we go home. But it does prove my belief that bulgogi marinade works on almost anything.

That sounds delicious. I’ve had fried gator, teriyaki gator, gator satay, and gator quesadilla. I gotta try this barbequed gator. If you’re ever in Ft. Myers FL., go to RJ Gator’s and try the gator quesadilla, it’s one of my favorites.
