East Side Pockets
Tucked away in a small space along busy Thayer Street, this restaurant is easy to miss, so keep your eyes peeled. Stop in to sample reasonably priced, tasty Middle Eastern fare. You can get wonderful Falafel here for less than $5. This is a popular lunch spot; the menu boasts eclectic fare that will appeal to both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. This is a buffet/takeout restaurant and seating is limited. They only take cash, but an ATM is on the premises.
We were very impressed with the quality and the cleanliness of East Side Pocket. Coming from Vermont, we don't see a lot of Middle Eastern food so we make most of it ourselves. The tahini sauce and cucumber dill are highly recommended. The chicken is grilled to order so it's moist and tender. Veggies were crisp and fresh. Staff friendly. Prices moderate to cheap. Most sandwiches are big enough for two people.
OH there is a lot that i like about this place that even a whole webpage won't cover it all...
i like their grill chiken, be a cezar, a buffalo or a regular chiken. it so so delicious.
their falafels are no comparaison to others in RI.
The falafels are awesome!!!!
No one makes them like E.S.Pockets
It's in a great location. In the summer time enjoy all the little shops close by and when your hungry you can walk in and grab a quick, inexpensive lunch. Also great for those who are vegetarians
When I moved to Miami, FL this was one of the restaurants that I was going to miss. I tried a similar restaurant in Miami. I should say I was greatly disappointed. Went back to Providence in 2005 & as soon I got off the plane I went to East Side Pockets.
This place is amazing!! I went to school in Rhode Island and would go there after a night out drinking. It has the best tasting falafel because the flavor is well balanced and it doesn't have that over bearing flavor that some falafels have that burns your throat if you've had too many tequila shots. Absolutely worth it!
I have been to this place twice and the food is just so good...
They have middle eastern food there such as Falafel and chicken Kabob, humus and Majadra (to those of you who know what I'm talking about).
I loved everything I ate!
I got the dinner chicken plate, whic had Humus, chicken Kabob, Serian Pita and Majadra on it (I could have had salad but I didn't want any). Anyway- It was amazing. very filling (good sized dish) and the taste is just divine.
My husband took the Falafel plate- same thing as mine only Falafel instead of chicken. The falafel is GREAT!
I recommend both!
I will go back for more, that's for sure; Even my kids (ages 13 and 10) loved it!
My 10yo said he loved that place more than the place we took him for Italian Ice cream (on that same street)- can you imagine a kid who loves Ice cream, saying that?
