Had an opportunity to experience the streets of Dhaka with some local friends who helped me find the hidden gems of the capital which would have been impossible to spot as a mere visitor.
The place is like any of the old cities of India.I did try some of the delicious local delicacies which was predominantly prepared with loads of turmeric and mustard oil.
When it came to street food they had all sorts like boiled eggs(Yep, just boiled eggs on a steaming tray) typical chaats, pan fried kebabs etc but this egg pancake caught my attention as it was unique and I couldn’t just walk past the cart without trying them.
The cart was damn busy and I found the whole concept really interesting.
Pour the pancake batter just enough to coat the griddle
Crack in the egg and close the molds. Which is like a waffle griddle. Cook both sides on medium flame for few minutes and Viola!! hot steaming egg pancake is ready to be enjoyed with soft (not runny) yolk in the center 🙂
The man who does this seamlessly every evening.
The month of May is the peak season for Lychees in Bangladesh. I could see them almost every where.
This modern Cafe in Glushan served all sort of coffees and had beautiful interiors with local monuments painted on the walls
Well, this is the one shot I definitely wanted to shoot in Dhaka.Even though this is one of the most photographed / cliche scenes, I just had to do it to tick it off my bucket list.
Waiting for customer..i guess 🙂
Didn’t get a chance to visit Old Dhaka which apparently is the hub of historic buildings with more choices of local culinary delights.
