Guinea pigs are native to South America and they are a traditional food. It’s called cuy in Peru. It has been served whole on special occasions since Inca times. Cuy is a delicacy here.
You can try a guinea pig at A picantería. Picantería is a traditional lunchtime restaurant in Peru, predominantly in and around the cities of Arequipa and Cuzco. Typical offerings of Arequipa cuisine include chicha de Jora corn beer and soups. Picanteria refers to a place serving Picante (“spicy”).
We tried our first ever deep-fried whole guinea pig (cuy) and purple corn beer (Chicha de jora) at Victoria Picantería Arequipa Peru 🇵🇪
