One of the Kind at the Hong Kong Supermarket in Allston Closes; to Be Replaced by Chilipa

A Chinese food stall at an Asian supermarket in Allston has closed, with another Chinese eatery taking over the space.

According to a poster on the Chowhound site, One of the Kind within the food court at the Hong Kong Supermarket on Commonwealth Avenue is no longer in operation, being replaced by Chilipa. According to its website, the new spot will focus on Mala XiangGuo, or bowls filled with meat, seafood, and veggie options and with varying heat levels from spices. There doesn't appear to be an opening date for Chilipa at this point in time, so keep checking back for updates.

[August 5 update: According to another poster on the Chowhound site, Chilipa is now open.]

One of the Kind first opened at the food court in early 2012, offering a variety of items, including Shandong and Sichuan fare.

The address for the upcoming Chilipa food stall in Allston (as well as the food court and market itself) is 1095 Commonwealth Avenue, Allston, MA, 02134. The website for the eatery can be found at
