I found myself wondering about Wilcon's Home Depot last week. We or should I say, I was stuck there bored out of my wits. Although I did enjoy looking around because I was constructing a house in my head. It was so pretty. If only you can see it! Haha It was not long and I finished my imaginary house and I was left with nothing to do. Who knew houses could be built within a day. Haha
Since mom and dad were still standing at the same isle for an hour or so. I excused myself and said that I was going to eat. Since it was already 6:30 pm. They did let me go and I proceeded with my initial plan of trying the food at Nueve Cafe.
We have seen the cafe earlier when I claimed my long over dued membership card at the counter and I just couldn't stop thinking about it.
As I was walking towards the cafe shop I was really anxious to see what's good in their menu because the crocodile meat I tried in Palawan was great! So I was kinda hoping that this would be too. I was hesitant to eat the crocodile sisig in Palawan, yet I was also eager to try it. Who knew I was so daring. Haha Not!
We were in a rush that day in Palawan, so I had no chance to see if there was something else besides sisig. Still it was good and I wanted more but we were all sharing that one order of Croc Sisig. It was like 2 years ago I think since I last had croc meat. So I was really excited when I saw that they had one.
There were several croc dishes to choose from like :
- Croco Wali (Naturally tasty, lean and healthy) P210.00
- Croc Tapa (Tender croc tapa marinated in garlic sauce) P195.00
- Croc Sisig (Adding a Pinoy touch to the Australian delicacy) P195.00
- Dundee Croc Burger with Chips and Cheese (120 grams) P170.00
- Jumbo Sausage in a Bun (Dundee Australian Cheese or Dundee Hungarian w/ Chips) P130.00
- Extra Super Jumbo Sausage in a Bun (Dundee Australian Cheese or Dundee Hungarian w/ Chips) P180.00
I was actually thinking of getting a rice meal. But I don't wanna waste the opportunity so I asked the kind lady what she would recommend to me. She said that their DUNDEE BURGER for P170.00 was the best seller. It had cheese in it and since my brain is allergic to the thought. I asked if it could be taken out.
I was really excited to eat croc meat again. While waiting I took a good look at their seemingly good looking pastries. What caught my eyes was their ORANGE MUFFIN and their DOUBLE CHOCO brownies. But we will save that for later..
The crocs they have and serve are locally farmed here in Rizal by Krocodile Shop.
Did you know that Crocodile meat is actually good for people with ASTHMA? Its got lean white meat which is great for the heart and is low in calories. Which would be great for people who wants to loose weight and not cut down on meat. If you don't mind eating crocodile meat that is.
A few minutes passed and finally the most amazing burger came out! I stared at the burger for a while trying to figure out how I would eat it since I didn't wanna use my hands. But it's a burger for heavens sake! So I gave up and just digged in. I lost all my poise and class btw, but who cares, stare if you want! I was just so hungry! The burger was crazy good. The croc patty was falling apart all on its own while I was eating it because it was so soft and juicy.
The chips that came with it was also crazy good. I wished there was more of it..
They also have frozen croc meat in the freezer beside the counter. We actually wanted to buy some, but we were not going home right away. The next time I go there I will make sure that I get to buy some and I will be updating you guys about it.
I was actually stopping myself from consuming the whole burger because I wanted mom and dad to try it. So I bought myself a DOUBLE CHOCO Brownie for P40.00. It was a fair price for something that size and it was surprisingly good and moist on the inside. I also loved that it was served chilled. I like my chocolates cold for some reason. :)
