Ever wonder what there is to do once you step off Brown’s campus? Curious about what Providence has to offer? On the Brown Low will be your faithful guide! Be sure to check in every week with us, Lily Hartmann and Brianna Lambert, to find out about the best spots around Providence and Rhode Island!
And we’re back! “Spring” semester is now in full swing at Brown (if you can even call it spring semester with all this snow). We’re all busy with finalizing our class schedules, starting up our extracurriculars again, and getting back into the swing of doing all that reading again. But despite everything going on, we’re here to give you more highlights about our coolest finds and things to do in Providence. Plus, we’re excited to have a reason to avoid the Scili for a little bit each week again! So to start it off for this semester, here’s what we did this weekend:
Yesterday while most people on campus and in Providence were watching the Super Bowl, Brianna and I headed off Brown’s campus and to dinner downtown. We took the recommendation of our friend and went to try Teriyaki & Korean House. The restaurant is on Westminster Street and is owned and operated by a South Korean family from East Greenwich, RI. Their menu has everything from Japanese fusion teriyaki to traditional Korean dishes. Teriyaki & Korean House seems to definitely cater to the college students in Providence so you should definitely check it out.
When we got to Teriyaki & Korean House, it was cozy but kind of quiet as people were out watching the football game at other places. After reading through the long menu and debating about what we were most hungry for, we decided on getting green and ginger tea, tofu teriyaki, and Korean beef bulgogi. The food came out super quick, and even if we may have struggled eating with chopsticks a bit, the food was really delicious. We stuck it out, didn’t ask for a fork, and finished our entire plates (but seriously, the food was really good). Brianna and I caught up with each other about classes, summer plans, friends and other things while we ate. There was just something about the laid back atmosphere and great food that makes the restaurant feel really comfortable.
We’ll be back next week and the rest of the semester with more about our finds and adventures in Rhode Island. But as always, if you know any places we should try or any ideas of where we should go, send Brianna or I an email! From the warmth of our dorms on this snowy day, we wish you all a good week!
Until next time,
