PVD/RI * November '12 * Open/Closed/Coming Soon

Ok, ok... So I missed October, but whatever... I'm not a site admin here (not that they do anything like this), just a longtime 'hounder trying to contribute to a little PVD dining community here... Sooooo...

Here's November. One place we went during October of note was the new Veggie Fun on Dorrance in downtown Providence. This is a vegan pan-asian with lots of fake meat soy and seitan options, something I've been begging for in PVD for some time. While I don't think it's the match of our favorite such place in Boston's Chinatown and it suffers from some of the flaws of such places (overcompensating for vege dishes with some overflavoring and oversaucing), it's certainly very good, and some of its dishes (like its black pepper fake meat) are excellent. For those who keep kosher, it also is one of two places (Wildflour Bakery being the other) in the area that are under supervision.

It's definitely worth your trying out and supporting (I'm a bit concerned about their location at the edge of the Parking Lot District there, which seems somewhat cursed). What else is new, closed, or changed?
