Blackened Gater & Fried Pickles at Felix’s in NOLA

While the good Reverend Doctor Biggles spends his days hunting and hopefully trapping his muse, we bring you some travelin’ meaters.
My sister Kallisti, and her husband Meathead are right now in New Orleans. She lived there for maybe 4 or 5 years many moons ago and wanted to revisit. I’ve got a sneaking suspicion this was taken not too terribly long ago, what with how the internet and fancy phones be.

  1. Hola Biggles! Glad to see you back. Needed a fix, I did. I had fried Gator many moons ago at a “wild beast feast.” Kinda tough and chewy, IIRC. And fried pickles? Love ’em or hate ’em. I’m with the latter, myself.

  2. Hey Kailyn,
    The clear choice for rec’s would be chowhound, I would think. I’ll ask and see what I come up with!
    Hey Cathi,
    I did alligator here a while back, called it Chinch Meat, chinchilla. It was probably for an April Fool’s joke. Turns out gator has different kinds of cuts just like other animals, some tougher than others. MmMmMMm, gator.

  3. Fried pickles are awesome! Had them in a BBQ joint in the middle of Kentucky on vacation. They had fried, breaded dill spears instead of the ‘burger chips.

  4. Had gator at the Jazz and Heritage Festival in NOLA years ago….it was not my favorite discovery among the food booths there (cochon du lait came in first, then crawfish etouffee) but it was a novel experience. Of course, everything in that city is a novel experience, one on top of the other.
    As I recall it looked about like the nuggets in the photo. No fried pickles though — coleslaw instead.
    I’m pretty adventurous but I don’t think I could do chinch meat.

  5. Hey Kudzu!
    Awwww, the gater I did myself here at The Labs was quite good, I enjoyed. Kinda like briny chicken.
