It's a tradition in Montevideo to eat ñoqui [gnocchi] on the 29th of the month. Some restaurants list ñoqui on their menu, with a little note saying they are only served on the 29th. The ñoquis, like the other fresh pasta, are quite good, but I've never eaten them on the 29th, so today I made a point of it.

Here's a gnocchi recipe. And here's a post about ñoqui from the Southron.

As a must, there are employees that are called "noqui", since they only show up at the end of the month to collect the pay check.
