Silk Road Café

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

Posted 9/17/1997

There are two Silk Roads in Baltimore, and to complicate matters more, they're both on Charles Street. But that's where the similarities end. The downtown Silk Road is an upscale Afghani eatery (pumpkin dishes, saffron rice, that sort of thing). The totally unrelated Silk Road Café in Chuck Village is an eclectic little nook (in the space once occupied by Café Diana) offering a little of everything (noodle bowls, curry fried rice, tabouleh, pita sandwiches, burgers, Greek salads). Few dishes cost more than $5 and most all are healthy, filling, and toothsome. While everyone is welcome at this cozy cheap-eat emporium, Johns Hopkins University students (whose campus is across the street) seem to make the most use of this restaurant resource. We can hear those dorm-room calls home now: "Yeah, I'm eating right. No, I'm not spending too much money."
