A couple of years ago I wrote about a place called “El Motorista” which is where I first ate chigüiro (read more about that here). I didn’t take any pictures on that occasion but this weekend I returned and I made sure to have a camera in hand.
Here are a few images to give you a better feeling for the place. And once again I must reiterate, chigüiro meat is truly delicious even though it is, you know, a giant rodent.

The meat is taken from the grill...
to the butcher. He chops it up into more manageable pieces.
Who knew so much meat, potato and plantain could fit onto one tiny plate.
