The Village PVD

The Village PVD

The Village PVD has been serving authentic Nigerian cuisine for more than a decade and recently opened a new location in Downtown Providence. While serving the delicious food their original location has been known for, the Providence location offers a wider selection of vegan and vegetarian options. The dining room offers a cozy modern ambience as you look out onto the bustling city street. While you're there, try some popular classic dishes like jollof rice, pepper soup, or efo riro, and be sure to save room for some delicious fried plantains or puff puff, a popular deep-fried dough ball similar to a doughnut hole.
