The Guinea pig/cuy frito: note the teeth! - Ayacucho

The Guinea pig/cuy frito: note the teeth!

La Casona: Good local food

Arranged around a courtyard, this restaurant is quite popular with the few tourists who made it to Ayacucho.

It serves typical local food as well as more sedate western options. The asparagus soup was made with powder, not surprising.

I decided to try an extreme local dish: fried guinea pig (cuy). It came with potatoes and mashed avocado, was cut in two lengthwise and still with teeth and ear. I ate it but there was hardly any meat. Maybe it would have been better in stew (picante de cuy)?

Favorite Dish: Can't say the cuy was great, actually it was pretty gross!

My friend's puca picante (pork with peanut sauce and potatoes) was good.
