Iggy’s Doughboys

Review by: Jane & Michael Stern

Iggy’s is a modern “eat in the rough” restaurant overlooking Narragansett Bay. Everything is presented in disposable containers – salads in plastic, chowder in a Styrofoam cup, stuffed clams in a cardboard boat, and doughboys in a brown paper bag – so that when you are finished eating, you can sweep everything from the table and toss it yourself.

The term “doughboy,” after which this restaurant is named, is unique to New England’s southern shores, but it is a food with cognates throughout the east and even way out west. A doughboy is a small square of puffy fried dough, served hot and rolled in granulated sugar. Sold by the dozen, doughboys are excellent sweet-bread companions for just about any meal. Elsewhere in New England, similar foodstuffs are known as flippers or cheats or (in Portuguese bakeries) malassadas; and they bear a remarkable resemblance to the scones of Utah and the sopaipillas of New Mexico, and even, in a distant way, to the beignets of New Orleans.

Iggy’s doughboys are so easy to eat that we suggest getting only a half dozen, lest you consume nothing but dough and thereby deprive yourself of appetite enough to eat the big, crusty clam cakes, red or white chowder, and good fried clams. We also suggest that any meal include a few stuffies – quohog clam shells piled with a luscious clam stuffing.

The beverage menu features locally bottled white birch beer and sarsaparilla.

Note: The Iggy’s on Oakland Beach Avenue is open year around. A second location, at 1151 Point Judith Road, is seasonal.

I was born and raised in Massachusetts and my parents moved to Rhode Island in 1980. There they discovered Iggy’s Doughboys Restaurant and introduced me to the finest seafood I have ever had. I will travel all the way from Arizona, where I now live, just to have clamcakes, lobster roll and dough boys.

Sinking my teeth into one of Iggy’s luscious clamcakes is pure heaven. It is always our first stop after arriving at the airport. Even my son, who cannot eat seafood, absolutely loves the cheeseburgers. And to have their own brand of soda pop is such a treat. We have such fun getting the doughboys for dessert. Shake the bag and get the sugar onto each and every hot piece of dough, so everyone can enjoy sweetness with every bite.

I always rave about how you order your food, pick it up and either sit on the beach or in the dining room and enjoy the ocean view. Will be visiting again soon and all I can think of is IGGY’S! IGGY’S!!!
