The Village Restaurant

By JOHNETTE RODRIGUEZ  |  September 23, 2009

We also tried a side order of chin chin, which were tiny crunchy fried dough pieces dusted with sugar, akin to "pretzel nuggets," and usually eaten by Nigerians as a snack. We might have chosen them for a bit of dessert, but what we did choose was even better: a side order of those marvelous fried plantains ($1.99). We fought over portions.

Although some in our group later declared a disinclination toward Nigerian food, I'd give it another chance. Based on the Village's careful preparations of the food, the warm staff, the menu items we didn't yet taste, and those plaintains, I think it's definitely worth another far-ranging trip to Pawtucket.
