Best Cheap Restaurant

Silk Road Café

3215 N. Charles St., (410) 889-1319

Posted 9/13/2000

We all know that one of the perks of living in Charm City is that it's cheap. Crazy, make-your-D.C.-friends-drool-with-envy cheap. Since there is no shortage of affordable places to eat, picking a favorite can be difficult. But even in this land of inexpensive culinary delights, there aren't many places you can go with six bucks in your pocket and leave stuffed to the gills with delicious food that is both global-minded and pleasantly homey. If that's the kind of dining experience you're looking for, get your poor, starving ass to the Silk Road Café at the upper end of Charles Village. The unspecifically Asian fare comes in generous portions and can satisfy a variety of tastes. For those of you who would rather pet animals than eat them, we recommend the sinfully cheap and ridiculously yummy 95-cent vegetable rolls, or a huge serving of veggie dumplings for just $3.95. Meat eaters can order any of the many rice or noodle dishes with Chinese sausage. We don't know what kind of meat it is, but we know delicious when we taste it.
