Heritage

Updating some articles I kept as drafts.

・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・

Introduced as one of the fanciest Bengali restaurants in Bangladesh on a Japanese guidebook, "Heritage".
My mother kept telling me she wanted to visit when she came to Bangladesh(though missed chance)...so instead her, I visited this time :D

I went for lunch buffet.
Heritage is located near Gulshan 2 circle, about 10 minutes walk.
Looks "Fancy restaurant", doesn't it!?
There was no one when I went with my friends at 12:30.
Lunch starts from 12:30 though they were still preparing at that time.

So wait for 10 minutes, let's have food!
Chefs were cooking behind the glass.
I was afraid if staffs say anything my taking pictures, but they welcomed, made dishes look good for pictures, and introduced
"this dessert is prepared by him!!"
and so on.....
This is Bangladesh.
People like pictures.

So let me tell about food.

At first, Bhorta(vegetable paste with spices).
Tomato, Papaya, Pumpkin Bhorta were there.
These are not so popular menu that every restaurant prepares.
There were 3 kinds of salads beside bhorta.
Then, curry.
Vegetables, Shrimp & Spinach, Mutton, Chicken, beef, fish, small fish & potato....e.t.c.
With curry, you can choose some kinds of naan, rice, and beef teheri.
Left side of picture below shows 2 kinds of daar.

One with brawn color is Indian daar, and with yellow is Bangladeshi.
I prefer Bangladeshi daar with mild taste.
Daar and white rice....this simple combination was just so good.
Guidebook told me that curry were cooked for foreigner so that it was not so spicy.
But it was spicy.
I was worried if I can have real Bangladeshi taste here, so it was good for me.

My plate.

Dessert.

Fruit salad, rice pudding, and Bangla sweets(which most of Japanese can't eat).
 
An hour had passed, but there was still no one.
My friend told me that restaurant would be full of Bangladeshi customer around 2 pm, but only I and my friend were there till 2pm.
"Are we only customer for today?"
"What will they do with that amount of food??"
We were worried for the restaurant.
 
But no worries.
After 10 minutes, groups of Bangladeshi people came and seat was full before 2:30pm.
Really seats were full suddenly!
If you want to enjoy meal in quiet place with no one, better to go before 12pm.
Lunch buffet is 600tk(+VAT15%).
