Crocodile Bite

Kitchenslut was contemplating things Chinese while casting an eye over the menu outside the Golden Boat restaurant in Lake St. What caught his eye was the pricing structure and most particularly the crocodile.

Salt & Pepper Crocodile Meat at $52.90? This price doesn't seem to relate to Kitchenslut's rather ordinary previous culinary experiences with crocodile or the price of the meat? Duck dishes at Golden Boat are $20.50, scallops $25.90, and the top priced lobster tail at $63.80.

Perhaps the pricing is more related to Chinese cultural factors with crocodile apparently having some reputation as an aphrodisiac? Kitchenslut has previously had some positive feedback on the Yum Cha at Golden Boat but doubts he will be venturing within for a crocodile bite!
