I tried cuy a few days ago for lunch at a restaurant that was recommended by one of my teachers. It's a place where a lot of locals go to eat. I like getting recommendations from my teachers because they know the good, clean places. I went with 4 other people. One guy, Mike, and I decided to order one plate of cuy to share. The other people just wanted to take a small taste. Well, I didn't care for it that much, so Mike ate most of it. What I didn't like was the texture. It's kind of slippery. Eeew! Also, it's hard to get past the little carcass staring up at you off the plate. Here are some pictures:
I had to at least give it a try. "When in Rome..." right?!
