Puran Dhaka, which translates to 'Old Dhaka' in Bengali, is a New York food truck that aims to promote the diverse flavors of Bengali street food and the culinary influence of Bangladesh.
This food truck offers a number of dishes whose names may sound familiar if you're a regular visitor to Indian restaurants, but the difference is that these dishes offer the unique flavors of Bengali street food, a distinct cuisine on its own. Some of the more innovative items on the menu include the $6 Morog Polao Chicken, which is a chicken and rice dish.
Lovers of tea will also be able to exult in Puran Dhaka's delicious Kashmiri chai, a milky and frothy tea that makes for an excellent beverage if you want to wash down the heavy meal.
By bringing authentic Bengali street food to New Yorkers, Puran Dhaka is looking to expose foodies to new flavor profiles within the world of South Asian cuisine.
