Have you ever had guinea pig or alpaca?

I know most of you are saying that guinea pigs are pets not food, but that is not true in Peru. There they are one of the national dishes. With that said I had to try it and now that I have I do not need it every again. 🙂 I found it to be scrawny and the meat was greasy and not good at all. In fact the three other people I shared it with did not like it either.

Alpaca, which is similar to a lama, was amazing. The cut I had was tough, but marinated very well. In fact, my pet needs that and I liked it so much I went back the next night and had it again.
