In the Philippines, crocodile dishes are rare and new for some but it is popular in other countries such as Australia, China and Thailand. Also, they consider crocodile meat as the healthy meat. Chef Josh Boutwood, Corporate Chef, Krazy Garlik, explained that crocodile meat is leaner, low in cholesterol and contains minimal fat content.
