Thai Wok Street Food

98 Pascoag Main Street, Pascoag



New restaurant alert! Thai Wok Street Food’s grand opening is on April 20. From reviews of their soft opening, they’ve got great food -- stop in and welcome them and check out their menu.  




1075 S. Broadway, East Providence



I love this post on Incred-A-Bowl’s Facebook page: “Food is more than just fuel for our bodies – it's a way to connect with different cultures and traditions. That's why we're proud to serve a variety of dishes from around the world, each with its own unique story and flavor.”  One of their newest dishes is chicken peri peri (pictured) but check out their great multicultural menu. Make plans to stop in on May 20 at 2 pm to help them celebrate “10 Years from Food Truck to Restaurant”! There will be food and drink, music and dancing, prizes and kids activities. Congratulations to the team at Incred-A-Bowl!

Spring is here and that means our seasonal ice cream businesses are starting to open! Pound Hill Creamery, serving Gifford’s ice cream from Maine, opened Saturday April 15 for the season.  If you’re there earlier in the day, Pound Hill Café has breakfast available from 6 to 11 am. And since they are right next door to Beef Barn, a good time to visit might be on Saturday, May 6 when Beef Barn is hosting the Spring Artisan Fair from 10 am to 4 pm (rain date Sunday, May 7).

Blackstone Food and Beverage Places in the News

Listed below are a few online articles that have been written about food places in the Blackstone Valley


RI Monthly 401 recently did an article on Mom and Pop Breakfast SpotsHere is what they wrote about some Blackstone Valley favorites: 


Coffee and Cream Breakfast Restaurant

900 Victory Highway, North Smithfield, RI 02896



“A one-time staple of breakfast binges and late-night excursions alike, this Blackstone Valley classic reopened in 2020 after a fire destroyed the original location. The new Coffee and Cream offers breakfast and lunch in a homey space that pays tribute to its farmhouse roots. Order a bloody Mary with your Norm McMuffin, named for family patriarch Normand Branchaud, who founded the restaurant in 1990.”


Gentleman Farmer Restaurant

617 Putnam Pike, Chepachet



“The focus is on big portions, and meals here could potentially feed a farmer for a day without the inconvenience of stopping for lunch. From three-egg omelets stuffed with homemade corned beef hash and cheese to the Gentleman Farmer version bursting with ham, onions, peppers, bacon, pepperoni, tomatoes, mushrooms, sausage and cheese, one would have to try really hard not to get four food groups in one bite. This diner characterizes some meals by appetite level, naming dishes the Not So Hungry Man, the Hungry Man and the Super Hungry Man, the last of which involves an eight-ounce steak, three pancakes, four eggs, home fries and toast. At the Gentleman Farmer, may you never know what it means to be famished again.”


Patriot’s Diner

65 Founders Drive, Woonsocket


“There is one spot in Rhode Island where you can get breakfast from morning to evening, seven days a week (and even until 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday). Woonsocket’s Patriot’s Diner is for all people, not just local football fans, though you might get an extra wink and a nod if you show your super-fandom. The diner is built on hometown hospitality with friendly service (everyone is “hon”) and a classic menu of breakfast favorites, from gigantic omelets and a pile of crispy home fries to pancakes the size of the plate. Omelets — big as a burrito — are served frittata style. Satisfy the kid in you and have breakfast for dinner.”


 Ye Olde English Fish & Chips

25 South Main Street, Woonsocket 

401-762-3637 posted an article on “Best Fish and Chips Restaurants You Can Find in the US”. Ye Olde English Fish & Chips came in #3 behind places in Malibu, California and Chicago, Illinois. Congratulations to Ye Olde English Fish and Chips!


“Ye Olde English Fish & Chips - Woonsocket, Rhode Island


Ye Olde English Fish & Chips is a family-run restaurant that keeps things traditional when it comes to fish and chips. Its English-style batter has followed the same recipe for 90 years, and it has remained just as popular as it first was when the restaurant opened in 1922. The fries or "chips" are also made fresh, on-site each day, resulting in a harmonious combo that complements each other. The $1 coleslaw is another great addition that is worth giving a try.”
