What a nice place, I am quite sure to remember it... Did you really eat the gators freshly catched from the water? This is the right revenge for the hundreds of tourists (mostly European) they eat every year... Or not?

It's funny R.J Gator - alogator:)
Did you enjoy food? I hope it was delicious!

@ VP - They had gators cut up and on the back of the booths but I think they were fake.

I don't think they sell gator meat here; you have to go to South Florida on US 41 between Miami and Naples...

Our gators probably eat more little American children than Europeans. Europeans are too tough! ;-)

I love the sun flaring into the shot. This must be a fun Florida-themed spot. I can almost taste the fried shrimp.

To all: I didn't look closely at the menu but have since discovered that R.J. Gator's does indeed serve gator meat. You can buy a gator tail, small or large, served with a Caribbean sauce!

People have told me it tastes like chicken, but they always say that when they aren't really sure what it tastes like! :-))

OMG. What does it taste like? Being a tough European ;-)), I would like to try it (remember we eat allsorts of weird things?!)
Oh and thank you for reassuring me. As a tough one, I can go swim wherever I want to!
I hope you had a good time yesterday evening. A romantic one by the sound of it!

cieldequimper said...

Sorry, I forgot to read your last sentence. Chicken eh? That's disappointing.

Jacob said...

@ Ciel - I don't think you ought to swim in Lake Sumter...you are just not tough enough! :-)

Yes, a nice, romantic evening.

And you might think gator tastes like steak; chicken was a guess some people have offered by way of explanation...

@ V - Hmmm...let's see, is your hair auburn? Is autumn auburn? Is auburn the color of my true love's eyes?

What auburn could you be talking about?

Heh. Heh! LYT!
