Roasted Cuy (Guinea Pig) - Vilcabamba, Ecuador
After almost six weeks in Ecuador, we decided it was finally time to try a local delicacy - cuy (guinea pig). We found a small restaurant run by a husband and wife where you could place an order for cuy 3 hours in advance and they would roast it fresh for you.
The result? The texture/taste of meat like duck, size and orientation of a chicken, and skin of a pig. It's something we're glad we did, but don't need to do it again anytime soon.
