There is a deeply rooted tradition in Pasto that special occasions, from graduations to weddings, are celebrated with roasted guinea pig. The rodent is cooked when it is three months old and the meat is tender. It is served with corn, steamed pastuso potatoes, peanut chili, and boiled eggs mixed with red chili peppers. This is the authentic taste of Nariño.
