DESTINATIONS bangladesh dhaka Dining Al-Razzaque


If you want to eat like the locals do, you can't miss Al-Razzaque. This place serves up local dishes, like curries, biryanis and enormous rotis at good prices. It is incredibly popular with locals, so it can be quite crowded, but the food is so good, it is definitely worth the wait.


Bangladeshi cuisine has been largely shaped by the country's geography: a vast network of intertwining rivers and deltas with seasonal monsoons and floods. As such, rice is a staple in the country's diet, along with lentils and, of course, river fish. This is all served with fragrant curries and warm breads, and it is filling and delectable. Add in some fine international restaurants, and visitors will eat more than their share while in Dhaka.
