I'm sorry, I tasted them when I was there and they are good.
Yes I had some cuy a few years ago in a restaurant up at about 15,000ft in the Andes where I was working on a mine hoist. The town was Huancao.
They were cooked on a rotary bbq spit built into the wall of the restaurant. They looked like rabbits. No heads or such.
I did not know what it was until after I ate the first one. But had more after knowing non-the-less!
Also had some punchamunca (sp?). It is a big type of corn.
The kernels are about 3/4 inch or so across and cooked in a pit in the ground along the Andean roads.
Take care and don't eat the live monkey brains in China. I did in Tianjin. Not recommended.
ETA: I did, as a child, have a pet guinea pig named Fluffy. May he rest in peace!
