A distinctly Ecuadorian dish of roasted guinea pig. Comes from the sound a guinea pig makes.... "cuy! cuy!".
Ecuadorians love to eat cuy.
Cuy = Guinea Pig Ecuador
The only "difference" is that in Ecuador cuyes are not pets, they are bred, much like chickens, to be later broiled and served as a delicacy.
person1: What should we cook for our guests today?
person2: I think we should get some Cuyes and serve them with potatos and encebollado.
