Two-alarm fire hits Brookline's only Uyghur restaurant
By adamg on Sun, 02/05/2023 - 5:26pm
What might have started as a kitchen fire at Silk Road Uyghur Cuisine, 1398 Beacon St. in Brookline shortly before 3 p.m. turned into a two-alarm fire before Brookline firefighters extinguished the blaze.
"Right now it's still a little too soon to know the extent of the damage," the Brookline Police Department reports.
There were no injuries, but one family living in the building was displaced.
Both Beacon Street outbound and Winchester Street were shut during the fire.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
The Uyghurs? I bet that Chinese balloon had something to do with it!
They lost their business. Too soon.
I hope this spot and its displaced neighbors
recover quickly. It's no joking matter, and that restaurant is very good.
Maybe being in the news will bring more interest. I’ve yet to try it and had been meaning to but forgot about it. Thanks for the recommendation!
They have another location in Inman Square in Cambridge
It's very good and I'm sure they could use the support right now
I hope they reopen soon
I came to this place a couple of times in the past couple of months. The place is no longer silk road, its Uzbegim. Its Uzbek cuisine which is similar to Uyghur cuisine but it is different. Anyways, its a great place with very tasty food and I hope they reopen soon!
