97. Raaga Cart's Gandules en Escabeche
If the girls of the all-vegetarian Raaga Cart packaged this stuff, we'd keep a tub in our fridge. The gandules - pigeon peas - cooked and pickled in a vinegary marinade are served with a side of corn tortilla chips for scooping. Believe us; you won't want to stop. Take it from a meat eater. Follow Raaga Cart on Facebook to learn where to find them next.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
