Dundee Croc Tapa and Croc Sisig

Croc Tapa, Garlic Rice and a side of Salted Egg and Tomato

Believe me, there was a shock factor when I first thought about trying crocodile meat for the first time. But it quickly wore off as my adventurous palate got the best of me. peanutbutter and I bought Croc Tapa and Croc Sisig to try at home.

I’m sure you’re all wondering where I was able to buy these Crocodile dishes. Well, I was very surprised to find it inside Wilcon Builder’s Depot in Balintawak. As you all know, our house is going to be finished soon. We had to buy some of the things that we like to put in our house that’s not included in the construction like the towel bar, curtain rods, and mirrors. For those needs we either go to Home Depot or Wilcon. That’s how we stumbled upon this big Dundee freezer full of different crocodile dishes and their small cafe serving Croc Arrabbiata among other things.

We bought Croc Tapa and Croc Sisig. Each bag weighs 180g and costs ₱195. At first, I was reluctant to try it but I finally gave in when I smelled it being cooked in the cafe. What I thought at that instant: “If it tastes as good as it smells then why the heck not try it.”

I’ve read that crocodile meat is a healthy alternative because it is white meat, has less fat, and less cholesterol.

Aside from the Croc Tapa and Croc Sisig, they also have other dishes like the Croco Wali, which I think is their version of Lechon Kawali.

They also have Croc Patty and Croc Sausages…

Even if crocodile meat is white meat, it can be tough to cook if you don’t know how to cook it. Good thing, the croc meat they sell at Dundee is already cooked and well seasoned. We were told that it can be reheated in the microwave but I refried the Croc Tapa and sautéed the Croc Sisig in chopped garlic and onions.

It did taste a bit like chicken but knowing you’re chewing on croc meat gives it a character of its own. ER… or maybe it’s psychological. LOL!

Both the Croc Tapa and Croc Sisig are well seasoned. The tapa paired really well with garlic rice, salted egg and tomato for a hearty breakfast. The sisig was a bit spicy, though. It went well with steamed rice and a side of chopsuey for lunch.

  1. I’m like that, too – when I see an unusual food, I just have to try it. When it comes to croc, though, it’s so similar to chicken I sometimes wonder if they’re just pulling my leg!

    i once had a skewered croccodile meat, but i;m really thrilled to cook it myseld,

  3. Really? You were able to buy croc meat in the freezer section? The first time I ate croc meat was when my Aunt made it for me in Louisiana. She fried sliced sections of the tail and main was it greasy. It took me years to try it again. The next time was small pieces fried like you show in the first picture. Much better!

  4. Hey! I saw this stand and tried to buy the croc burger for my hubby, too bad it was out of stock. I should have bought the croc sisig since he likes spicy food.

  5. I thought you are only speaking about a brand, not that these are actual crocodile dishes, woah. Interesting find! I know the place Balintawak, mapuntahan nga yan minsan!

  6. Thanks for sharing this! I’ve always wanted to try this but I’m a bit too scared too try it because I haven’t tasted croc meat in my entire life. Maybe it’s time to give it a try. 🙂

  7. I’m not very adventurous when it comes to trying out “exotic” food. I’ve never even tried eating frogs or snakes…what more eat croc meat! Nandidiri lang talaga ako. Hihi!

  10. It was last August when I first saw this croc meat for sale in Wilcon Depot. Gusto ko sana itry kaso alam mo yun, nagdadalawang isip ako hahaha

  11. OMG I haven’t tried eating crocodile meat but I have seen a lot of it being sold in local Singapore supermarkets. I was surprised that it doesn’t cost much (as compared to more exotic food). It’s also interesting to know that it’s a healthier alternative to maybe red meat.

  12. I’ve never tasted croc meat before but it’s being served quite a lot already it doesn’t sound exotic anymore haha! Good to hear it tastes good!
