I love food! To me, food offers comfort and security. In addition, cuisine is a cultural expression and represents an opportunity to more thoroughly understand and appreciate a particular culture or region. When traveling I make it a point to taste local specialties as a way of enriching my travel experience. Someone recently suggested that I share my favorite restaurants with my readers because of my great interest in food. Keep in mind that food preferences are very different from person to person and also that a restaurant experience is about so much more than the food.
Asian cuisine is extremely popular around the United States, especially in cities where there is a considerably more diverse population. I have always liked Chinese food, especially on New Year’s Eve. However, I enjoy it much more often now that Thai and other southeast Asian dishes are also offered. My favorite Asian restaurants in RI are listed below:
1. Jackie’s Galaxie, various locations in RI
2. Lemongrass, 1138 Post Road, Warwick, RI
3. PF Chang’s, 111 Providence Pl., Providence, RI (very different approach to Asian cooking)
4. Seven Moons, 6900 Post Road, North Kingstown, RI
