An absolutely delightful experience! We had the cuy chactado which was delicious. The owner was so nice, explaining all of the dishes, and even called us a taxi home! I can't recommend kusikuy enough - absolutely wonderful :)

And first pisco sour! The alpaca steak was great, as recommended by our server Luciano. The space is nice and quiet away from the bustle of the Central Park.

I can't remember seeing Pigeon on the menu, but I have eaten them in France and they were delicious. Also both meals I had at Kusikuy were very good.
