Best Appetizers

The Silk Road

The appetizers at The Silk Road are like valedictorians—high achievers. You want pork schnitzel? You get pork Schnitzel with lemon and cognac cream sauce. Craving fries? Well, here’s some house-cut potatoes tossed in Berberé salt and Creole remoulade. The revolving menu of rich and creamy, spicy, sweet, salty, fried, nutty or pickled foods makes eating feel like an art. Those who shy away from pretentious eateries soon learn that for all the artistry put into these appetizers, the cleverness never outweighs the scrumptiousness. Ivy League? Yes. But as indulgent as dropping out of school for a trip around the world. The Silk Road: 515 S. Higgins, 541-0752,
