mmm Guinea Pig….
Posted by Cool Your Jets IV on March 30, 2011
Guinea Pig is a Peruvian favourite, pretty much every restaurant in Cuzco has it on their menu and having never tried it I thought, why not! By all accounts the best place to try Guinea Pig here in Cuzco is a little restaurant called Kusikuy just off Plaza de Armas, on Av. Suecia. It comes two ways, either fried or baked – I opted for baked and was told that it would take 45 minutes… When it arrived, it looked very much like crispy duck minus the plum sauce and pancakes!
It’s quite tasty in a rabbity/chicken kind of way – not much meat and the only way to eat it is with your fingers.
Will I have it again, not sure…
