Our recommendation for the New Year:
If you find yourselves in Dhaka make your way to Prabartana in Mohammadpur. On the 4th floor is Adda Café, run by women, and serving the most delicious food we have had in Dhaka and great value for money too. We treated ourselves to a number of culinary delights and then went on to shop for late Christmas presents downstairs in the boutique.
