Some of my favorite spots to indulge
We all have guilty pleasures, right?.....Right?
Nikolas Pizza38 Memorial Blvd West
Of all the amazing Newport Rhode Island restaurants, the first place I want to eat when I come back to Newport always seems to be Nikolas Pizza.
The pizza is good (I usually get a large pie with mushrooms), and their wings are the best!
I don't like them very hot (I usually get them mild), and I don't consider myself a connoisseur of chicken wings. I've just always loved the wings here.
They do have many other items on their menu, but I can never get myself to try anything else. I guess I just like what I like when it comes to this place.
Ben's Chili Dogs
You can stuff yourself here for under $10. My usual order consists of 3 chili, cheese and onion dogs, a small bag of chips, and a drink.
***Update:Saturday, May 1st 2010 is the last day for Jerry Bienvenue at Ben's Chili Dogs :( He's selling the shop to two Middletown residents, who I hope will continue the tradition.
Just make sure you bring cash though, because they don't accept credit cards!
181 Bellevue Avenue
This was one of my favorite destinations as a kid growing up in Newport. I'm sure was a favorite for adults too, because to this day I love coming here to enjoy their ice cream, sundaes, and the world-famous "Awful Awful".
Trust me, the "Awful Awful" is much better than it sounds. It's a drink (much like a milkshake) that consists of milk, flavored syrup and a secret frozen ice milk mix. The recipe is Top Secret information.
As the Creamery says:
OK, that's enough on guilty pleasures for now. I'll let you in on some more later.
