Llama? Tastes like, well, not quite chicken; more along the lines of veal. Let's just say it's the other light meat, ground for the mini-Peruvian meatballs - nine to a serving - that game-obesessed chef Michael Zulli serves at Bridgewater's Pub. Zulli combines it with cilantro, garlic-chile sauce, red onion and mashed potatoes, adding a dash of Latin heat to the Swedish-esque meatballs. With chile-spiked marinara sauce, they're wowing the cocktail crowd.
Llama meatball appetizer, $9.50, Bridgewater's Pub in 30th Street Station, 215-387-4787.
