I’ve only met one person who doesn’t like chocolate, so I’m assuming that the information I’m about to give is crucial to most. The best chocolate cake in Rhode Island is in your midst, as Gregg’s Restaurant has several locations (Providence, Warwick, East Providence, and North Kingstown). Go to one.
Gregg’s Restaurant is your classic family diner, featuring home-style meals and friendly servers. What makes Gregg’s different from the rest is their chocolate cake, aptly named “Death by Chocolate Cake,” which made me realize that this is how I’d like to die.

Ramen holds a special place in college students’ hearts. We depend on late night meals to keep our study grind going, often leading to a date with noodle cups.
Once you get a taste of Ken’s Ramen, a mere 10-minute walk from the Faunce steps, you’ll never want to eat shitty ramen out of a Styrofoam microwavable cup again. Brown and RISD students can easily walk to Ken’s Ramen, get an extra Hirata pork bun from the money saved on an Uber and call it a reward for exercising. Sometimes I debate going there and just ordering 10 pork buns for my meal. But then, I remember just how delicious the noodles are.
