Granted there's probably no burning need to eat alligator, but isn't it good to know where to find the southern dish in Hermosa Beach? And one might expect to find gator at New Orleans Cajun Cafe, where they serve all things Cajun.
But alligator tacos at Los Muchachos Mexican Restaurant?
"It's very good," manager Manuel Ruiz said Thursday. "People love it."
Ruiz said his boss, who also owns New Orleans Cafe, has it shipped fresh frozen. Sometimes, he said, it needs a bit of tenderizing before he grills the gator meat with onions, peppers, cilantro and seasoning.
Gator nuggets for kids and prepared blackened or grilled, the alligator meat entree can be found in one block of Pier Avenue.
Even more interesting is their fairly new menu addition: chicken and waffles for $7.99, which Ruiz said he's been advertising with a new sign.
