PUBLISHED:Jun 13, 2016 | UPDATED:07:12 AM, Jun 14, 2016

When you think of Iftar, what comes to mind is mom’s homemade piaju, chola, beguni, khichuri/pulao. And when you’d think of going out for Iftar with friends, you’d think of Pizza Hut’s infamous “Unlimited Pizza and Coke” offer, and of Iftar buffets, the likes of Efes and Baton Rouge, etc.


Tree House 
Banani 13/E , house #135 ( Opposite of Prescription Point), 1213 Dhaka


But with the integration of Western culture in Bangladesh, we now have available to us a wide variety of “uncommon” items and platter offers for iftar.


Mohakali-Gulshan Road, 1212 Dhaka



Starting with the newest, hottest, and most uncommon Iftari offers are the wide choices of Sushi and Bento boxes – a few including Tokyo Express with a Bento box of Sushi at 990BDT**, Fo_0l’s Diner with a Bento box of Oriental at 785BDT**, Umai with a Fish Bento at 1645BDT, TBC-Dhanmondi with the cheapest Bento of Tofu and Rice cake at 550BDT, and Izumi with a “Special Sashimi” Bento at 2500BDT**, and regular/veg options at 1300BDT**.
