Fraser Street Finds

Fraser street is changing, providing a new discovery every week. In support of my changing neighbourhood, I have set up a new label called Fraser Street Finds that very quickly gets you into the different blog entries representing places to eat and places to shop at on Fraser street. Some of those are previously featured restaurants (Les Faux Bourgeois, Original Tandoori Chaat House, Tandoori King) and some are yet to come (Al-Watan, The Outpost Cafe).

Tonight's discovery was the Dhaka Fish & Biryani - a sweet, cozy and quiet Bengali restaurant.

Quality comes through the pleasant service of the owner, the smells coming out of the kitchen where her husband is cooking and the fact that dishes are made on the spot, making the wait for food longer than expected (but pleasantly so).
We started the meal with the restaurant's special Chaat (more on Chaat at Fun Day in San Francisco). It was a huge platter, the dough was freshly made, lightly fried and the spices just right. This was the best part of the meal.

The main meal was Basa Fish Biryani and a Rohu Fish cooked in spices. A bit oily, a lot spicy, but a taste to savour.
