guinea pig meat chicago?

I guess he or she read our post last week about the Peruvian Last Supper. Anyway, after some research there appear to be two restaurants in the city by the lake where you can get some fried cuy: La Sierra and Rondador. However, it may or may not be available on a given night, and sometimes it might not show up on the menu even if they have it (silly squeamish Americans). Don’t be afraid to call ahead and ask.

Pet store owners of Chicago should beware: there may be a hungry person stopping in to ask how “fresh” your guinea pigs are. Just imagine what he or she would have done *before* google. Asking your friends if they’ve been to a restaurant with “some good cavy” is a recipe for social awkwardness.
