Yes, that is the official name of the Ocean State.
Poverty Pete is in Southern New England for work and he dropped in yesteday for for some good ol' fashoned Ocean State "Rhode" fooding.
When I returned home from work yesterday we drove down to South County and headed right to the beachfront clam shack, Champlins where we both enjoyed some fried whole bellied clams and clear chowder as well as sharing an order of steamers and stuffies....
This morning before work, we headed to Jigger's Diner, I ordered a platter of jonny cakes to share, Poverty Pete also got a corned beef omelet and I'm happy to say he is no longer "a coffee milk virgin"
Although his visit was brief I was glad to play host to one of our favorite roadfooders.
