I have a certain primordial fear of animals that haven't evolved much during the past few millenia. This bug-eyed fellow however, I didn't mind meeting... in the proper environment, of course. Restaurants; good. Bayou; bad.

Food at Bayou Brasil was good, though disappointingly they were out of both Turtle soup (at 7:30 on a Saturday night!?!) and their chocolate-pecan pie. Service was slow but that permitted us to linger and get more conversation in so it all worked out.

Desert at Rockaberry's was what it always is; delicious and guilt-inducing. And, they had pecan pie!! Yay!

Oh, and alligator does not taste like chicken. Nope.

Well, it's kinda hard to describe. The texture is like nothing you've ever had. It's a bit like veal - only tighter, and it's a little like Pike - only not.
We had, Zomb & I, the Blackened 'gator. It was salty-spicy so it was difficult to make out the meats flavour but if I had to proclaim, I'd say it tasted like a cross between veal and delicately flavoured fresh-water fish.
It's yummy.
Next time, I'm going for the Alligator steak. That should give me a better idea of the meat's flavour.

Alligator pie, alligator pie,
If I don't get some I think I'm gonna die.
Give away the green grass, give away the sky,
But don't give away my alligator pie.

Alligator stew, alligator stew,
If I don't get some I don't know what I'll do.
Give away my furry hat, give away my shoe,
But don't give away my alligator stew.

Alligator soup, alligator soup,
If I don't get some I think I'm gonna droop.
Give away my hockey stick, give away my hoop,
But don't give away my alligator soup.
