Crocodile meat is an acquired taste, one that many probably won't mind if they don't ever have.
I was one of those hesitant foodies until I tried a crocodile meat, strawberry and feta salad at a private lunch with the Nigerian soccer team a few months before the 2010 Fifa World Cup.
The chef was clever enough to trick us and only tell us later that it was crocodile meat.
I didn't feel sick afterwards, even though I kept thinking: 'Did I just eat crocodile meat?'
Eight years later, I got a call from Chef Sbu Nhleko, the head chef at the Big Easy Winebar & Grill by Ernie Els at the Hilton Hotel, to come try out his new crocodile meat dish at the restaurant.
He also played a guessing game and made me guess between the dish and a chicken dish. He'd cooked both meat the same way, making it a tad bit difficult to predict which was which.
Thanks to the game-y texture of the crocodile meat, I was able to guess which was which.
Check the video to see why he thought the restaurant should serve crocodile.
