I wasn't crazy about alligator the one time I tasted it - sort of like fishy chicken.

I've only had turtle soup once, & that was as a child. It was from a tin & was clear with chunks of turtle meat floating in it. All I remember was that when the bowl was set before me, the smell reminded me of an aquarium when you lift the lid - lol - & I couldn't force it down.

It also didn't help that back then everyone had those tiny baby red-ear slider turtles as pets - little plastic basin with plastic palm tree & all!!

When I lived in Plattenville, La, there was a roadhouse at the end of a road out in the swamps that had wonderful food, including turtle soup and turtle stew. They had great fried frog legs, too.
I also had turtle soup at Brennen's, in New Orleans. All were delicious, and each tasted a little different.
I've never had fried turtle, but I'd love to try it.

They don't use the green sea turtles any more, just the big old swamp turtles, so don't feel guilty about partaking.

Connie, I also had some great turtle soup in N.O. at the hotel I stayed in when I went down there for Mardi Gras. Free too, which made it even better!

Sadly, the Hurricanes from the bar were not free.

S&S - do they serve armadillo in any of the TX restaurants?

The turtle soup at Brennen's was NOT free, Mudbug.

Armadillo? I ate fried rattlesnake when I was in Texas, but have never heard of eating armadillo. I remember seeing a few along the road in Florida, though. That's a very primitive animal. Did you know that they are all the same sex?

I've never heard of anyone eating armadillo here in Texas but I do see alot of them dead on the roads here.
