Onwards and upwards! Last Saturday had some of the most glorious weather Autumn has to offer.
Overlooking this spectacular view (and with a discount voucher) we sat down to a spot of lunch at the Blackbird Café.
Himself just needed to ingest copious amounts of fuel, and went for the Hawaiian Pizza.
I felt like being a little more daring and ordered the Crocodile Burger!
Crocodile is a very delicately flavoured meat. Vaguely peppery. I think it may have been a little too sweet for me with the mango chutney, but I was informed they have to cater to tourists’ tastes which tend to run in that direction.
Darling Harbour can really be a wondrous place. So long as I don’t have to deal with too many tourists I really enjoy being there!
I think I’ll have to procure some crocodile for myself and experiment with cooking it …

Wow, I like the look of that Pizza, but I still reckon the Chicken and seafood beats both his pizza and your crocodile burger
You’re a simple man with simple pleasures, aren’t you *grinhugs*
crocodile is a flesh that has no real flavour on its own, so mild that blindfolded you would never guess it. with the consistency of small fish, like Garfish or Redfish. as it has a fairly neutral palette you must marinade it for at least 4 hours prior to use, but heres the thing it takes up flavours marvellously, especially Asian ones, heres two of my faves,
Vietnamese- equal parts fish sauce, sugar and lime juice, herb at will and BBQ or hot Pan roast.
Japanese- 1/4 cup soy, 50 mls mirrin, 1 tblsp sesame oil,l tblsp Worcestershire, baste while grilling
Awesomesauce tastes like WIN! (or Victory, depending on your pallet …)
