Muffaletta? Where to find?

If you're up to a mobile food experience, try Where Ya' At Matt. http://whereyaatmatt.com/ His truck is in different parts of the city, depending on the day.

Matt's a good guy, and the food is great. Personally, I go for his Shrimp & Grits or a Po' Boy, but his Muffaletta is darn tasty too.

Dried Pigeon Peas in Seattle?

FOUND! I went back to HT Oaktree Market for some brown rice and decided to have another look at the Goya section, and there they were. I'm sure they weren't there two weeks ago. I just wish I didn't need to hit three+ stores to shop for Puerto Rican ingredients.

I did. They have canned pigeon peas, not dried. In fact they're the ones who suggested that Madison Market might have them. FWIW, in addition to the stores listed in my original post, I also checked Metropolitan Market and PCC.

Thanks. I'm not sure that split pigeon peas would work because they're skinned and more likely to mush up.

I'm starting to dig into Puerto Rican food and can only find canned pigeon peas, not dried. I think the canned ones get a bit mushy in Arroz con Gandules, so I'd like to find dried ones. I've checked Big John's PFI, Oak Tree Market, Central Market, Madision Market, Fred Meyer and several QFCs with no luck.

I know Goya distributes them because you see them in every supermarket in the NYC area. I'll probably bring some back with me the next time I go to New York but I'd love to find a local supply.

BTW, thanks to the PNW board, I was able to find culantro for my sofrito.
