Foods unique to Rhode Island

Hello All,

I'm working on a small travel guide for Rhode Island (see link below):

I'm looking for suggestions for great Stuffies, and New England chowder (or RI style...though I haven't been a fan of it in the past. Admittedly I've only tried it a few times, it's not very wide spread)...

My favorite chowder is at Aiden's in Brisol, with Liberty Elm in Providence a close second!

..and while we're on the topic of unique RI foods, can anyone clear up what a Cabinet really is? It's supposed to be a milkshake (i.e. ice cream, milk, flavorings) , but what does that make a "real" milk shake? I've heard that a milkshake here is just milk blended with flavorings....but I'm not sure I've actually ever seen that anywhere. Can anyone recommend a place that has separate items called cabinets and milkshakes?

Here is the link to the guide I'm working on .....RI food related travel guide:

Thanks for the help!

Liberty Elm
