Grilled Pomfret at the “Chef’s Table” in Dhanmondi, Dhaka, Bangladesh

Chill Pill

An interesting choice of restaurant name, on Zakir Hossain Road, in Lalmatia, Mohammadpur, Dhaka, Bangladesh! My friend enjoyed his burger. I enjoyed my momo’s.

National Martyr’s Day in Bangladesh gives opportunity to dress up, gather with the crowd, and of course, ice cream cones for the children, or adults!

The gentleman above was making me a plate of this delicious snack. At the bottom is the serving he gave me! Tasty, for sure!

A nice birthday party! Starting off with a Cypriote Salad, and finishing up with Chocolate Cake!

Dreams and Lies

What was your dream job as a child? FBI agent! I gave that up when I realized that even to work in the crime lab, I would need to carry a gun! I probably read too many “Hardy Boys” books, or Sherlock Holmes mysteries! Of course I ended up in a hospital lab helping diagnosing diseases, instead of solving crimes.

What’s a lie you tell yourself? Walking an extra mile will take care of the cookie or cake (or Bengali sweets) that I just ate!

Flaming Dessert

Hot caramel poured over ice cream and brownie at the Manhattan Fish Market!

Fav Meal

What’s your favorite meal to cook and/or eat? For sure a favorite meal would be a Bengali meal.

Tops on the list would be the Nan Ruti, Dal Bhaji meal topped off with a cup of cha! Any curry meal would run second! Yesterday I was privileged to have both of these meals! Note the salad with my breakfast Nan meal, which was four slices of cucumber, a lemon slice, and a hot pepper!


After a morning walk with my wife, and a soccer match, I had my favorite breakfast of Nan riding and dal/bhaji at the Jannat Hotel (restaurant).

I’d love feedback on which photo you would choose, if I only posted one? Thanks in advance!
