There’s an interesting discussion going on over at Chowhound about whether it’s possible to get cuy in the Boston area. For those of you who missed this week’s episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, cuy is guinea pig. For dinner. It is generally served within the Andean mountains and is spit-roasted over a fire. Frankly, we’re sold with “spit-roasted over a fire”. It sounds kind of…good? Certainly no more adventurous than the sweetbreads on the menu at high-end eateries like Hamersley’s or No. 9 Park. Sadly, the Chowhound consensus seems to be that cuy would be difficult, if not impossible to find anywhere near Boston, so this one will have to be filed with the many other foods to try while traveling.
