During the period of my stay in Bangladesh, I seriously wanted to try on their street food but its highly advise by my company partners and colleague not to do so, is because their food on street is quite dirty, they scared that our body immune system cant take it and fall ill. Well, the only place I have my food for 5 days in a row is in the hotel restaurant. So it is all one shot of food during my stay in the country.
Honestly, I have nothing much to brag on their food as the food there is something similar like Indian and cross over with some Arab food and also taste much better in our country.
‘Chicken Bryani Rice’
The ‘Mint Sauce’ is really unique in taste. It’s a bit minty, yet when dip with chicken it taste a bit cold when put into my mouth, a bit sour in yogurt taste but it goes very well with the fried chicken.
‘Garlic Prawn’ as we nearly had this on every meal because its one of the best and we tried the whole menu and still remains one of our favourite. Cook with garlic fragrance till the sauce had become thick till the prawn had soak taste onto its skin.
‘Chicken Masala’ that cook with yogurt till its a bit creamy and add on some tomato to blend with it, did not taste weird however it taste good. Soft chicken meat and thick gravy that goes very well with rice.
‘Chicken Roti Kebab’ the dry version of our curry chicken but rich in spices.
After eating many days of the same dish and it had become boring meal, we did opt for western style, with their ‘Mix Grill’ that kinda dissapoint a little but again cannot compare with our local food.
‘French Onion Soup’ which I only order during my last meal in the hotel, and only realise that its very good. Rich in soft onion, a bit salty and crouton that bake with the cheeze ontop of it, its top notch.
‘Spicy Hawaiian Chicken’ taste not bad as it was pan grilled till very nice.
‘Steak Dine’ which I enjoy my every bite of it. The sause taste good as it taste something like mustard cook with some mushroom sauce and it was cook medium as I prefer it.
During my lunch, I was a bit lucky to get a taste of their very own local food which is their local fast food which I have requested because during this exhibition I cant really leave the booth and nearby the area there is nothing much to eat except on the lower ground, selling local snacks.
One of their fast food chain is called ‘Yummy Yummy’ what a name, as me and my colleague keep laughing on it.
When I open the box, it looks like Ramlee burger, but with the first bite of the burger, makes me finish within minutes. Soft bun and juicy mutton meat with their very own sauce is good.
With the next meal of the day, our lunch is from Solna another fast food chain.
The pizza sure looks like so so, but we have underestimate it as we hope each of us can get 2 slices of it. Had not enough!
and their traffic is seriously bad. The people do not drive according to their lane and its so near that till you wind down your window you can just dodge your head out abit you can lick the window of the car beside it. Their driving skill, damm geng!
Last post will show a bit on street photography and been to their biggest market that will lead a peek of their city life.
