Five Spice Cafe, Burlington VT, fire

Kitchen fire today at the Five Spice Cafe in Burlington has pretty much destroyed this long-established restaurant. It has been ruled accidental, but with damages estimated at $750K according to the local news report, this can't bode well for the restaurant's future.

  1. Too bad! That was a favorite of ours when visiting friends in Burlington.

    1. Thanks for the update. I think updates like this are just as important as food op'eds.

      1. Ouch, that was one of my favorite places in Burlington. Hope they can sort this out with insurance, otherwise, I hope the staff manage to find good positions at some of the other good places around there.

        1. So sad. I will miss the dim sum.
