Silk Road Express Opens at Hong Kong Supermarket/Super 88 Food Court in Allston

A new dining spot has come to a food court in Allston, and it has a connection to a Cambridge restaurant that features a type of cuisine that is very difficult to find in the region.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Silk Road Express is now open within the Hong Kong Supermarket/Super 88 food court in Allston, with the poster indicating that it is an outpost of Silk Road Uyghur Cuisine on Cambridge Street. Based on the original location and the picture posted within the group page, it appears that the new eatery is focusing on Uyghur fare, which is typically found in the far northwest part of China and includes such items as dry fried noodles, diced noodles, lamb kebabs, stir-fried lamb, wontons, dumplings, and more.

Silk Road Uyghur Cuisine first opened in Cambridge in June of 2017.
