East Side Pocket
East Side Pocket, the predominantly ‘to-go’ institution in the heart of Providence, is now so formidably popular in the area – due to its delicious, melt-in-the-mouth, fresh Middle Eastern cuisine, it has become one of the most popular places to eat in Rhode Island. Choose to dine in, or scurry off with a handful of sumptuous flavours, such as the locally renowned falafel, made from ground chickpeas, garlic, vegetables and a bespoke, organic and traditional spice mix, served with homemade hummus, yogurt sauce and Syrian bread. Otherwise opt for one of their titular pockets, loaded with grilled chicken tenders marinated in olive oil, fresh garlic, oregano and a generous helping of organic spice. For something a little lighter, try one of the house salads, such as chicken kabob dipped in hot buffalo sauce over crisp lettuce, tomatoes and onions, drizzled with a blue cheese dressing.
