The land surrounding the Narrow River is a prime example of Rhode Island's varied natural splendor, which includes sandy beaches, lush forests, green fields, marshland, and sand banks. Narrow River Kayaks puts it all within reach, equipping locals and visitors with a variety of vessels, including canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards.
Once boated up, you can paddle your way across the Pettaquamscutt Watershed area for a relaxed day of fishing, picnicking, spotting wildlife, or making kissy faces at your own reflection in the river. With outdoor showers, changing tents, and portable restrooms onsite, Narrow River Kayaks assures aquatic adventurers a comfortable time in the great outdoors. The shop also sells new and used kayaks, and can set up all boaters with items such as dry bags, waterproof containers, and personal flotation devices for jaunts past the John H. Chafee Wildlife Refuge and the Kettle Ponds.
Eggroll Café's menu boasts inventive ingredients like replacing eggrolls' classic fillings with the tastes of cheeseburger, spinach and feta, or steak fajita inside the familiar golden, crispy crusts. The kitchen shies away from the use of added preservatives, flavorants, colorants and trans-fats. Far from the average Asian eatery, here, baristas whip up flavored lattes in irish cream or white-chocolate flavors to pair with bento boxes full of General Gao's chicken, Chicken Katsu, and Spicy Korean Pork. Among the bright yellow walls, patrons sip fruit-flavored bubble teas and take bites of cinn' apple dessert eggrolls to top things off.
Students and graduates of the Amos Culinary Education (ACE) program show off their food prep prowess at Friendship Cafe, a restaurant run by the nonprofit social services agency Amos House. The chefs here hone essential kitchen techniques as they cook classic egg-and-pancake breakfasts, simmer homemade soups, and stack deli sandwiches. "We designed the menu to offer all-around culinary skills training," manager Robb Desimone told City News. Down-home daily specials, such as pot pies, fish and chips, and meatloaf, allow cooks to build their comfort-food repertoire and diners to feel like they successfully crashed someone else's family dinner.
The Duck & Bunny offers a menu of savories, delicacies, and comforting treats inside an ornately decorated snuggery, with chandeliers, fine drapes and curtains, and a fireplace whose mantle makes a home for the self-portrait of a handsome bunny. Maxi-sized gourmet cupcakes are freshly crafted daily in different flavors. Cupcake mouth-fragrances include the chewy, fudgy, and sweetly shocking brownie mint surprise, the carrot cupcake, which tops a moist, rabbit bait-flavored mini cake with cream-cheese frosting, and the peanut-butter chocolate truffle, a sweet mountain of chocolate ganache, peanut butter, and chocolate-swirl frosting.
