Cuy - guinea pig?

I'm trying to track down some Ecuadorian cuy and not having much luck--most of the restos listed on the internet as serving it are saying they don't anymore. anyone have any current spots that serve cuy, even a street vendor? Thanks!

  1. Urubamba, a Peruvian place in Jackson Heights has it as a special sometimes. I would call them to find out.

    1. I've seen cuy roasting on spits at food carts in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.
      They seemed to be huddled in the area of Perimeter Road & Pacific Avenue, if you want to check it out on Google Maps. It's a large park, so mapping it out is a good idea.
      I was there on a hot summer day, so you may have to wait a few weeks before they're out there.
