Take a close look at these little cuy quarters. Cuy is a traditional dish in peru, and the locals tout cuy as the healthiest of all meats, which I find funny because the only form of preparation is deep fried.

Nadia, Luisa, and I went looking for a good restaurant that served cuy. We tried a couple of restaurants before we ended up at El Huaralino, which turned out to be really fancy. I thought I was early to a wedding party; everything was white; there were fresh flowers on every table, and the service couldn't have been better.

Cuy, by the way, is guinea pig: and if you look really close, you can see its little toe nails

This is the Mercado Modelo where cuy are sold.
