Bangladeshi food cart on 45 St/6Ave

Someone in the felafel discussion mentioned a new cart near Cafe Europa on 6 Ave, so I went over to try the food. The cart was still there at 7 in the evening two days ago so I ordered the chicken with rice. The chicken is terrific and they serve basmati rice. The small serving of salad went perfectly with the meal and the dollop of yogurt sauce was excellent also. Price $4.50. I went back today for lunch and tried the $4.00 chicken on pita. Same chicken and all the ingredients tasted fresh - easily one of the best chicken pitas I have ever had and miles ahead of the carts near Rock Center. This spotless cart is located on the SW corner of 45 Street at 6 Ave and has a sign that reads "KWIK MEAL #5". I complemented the two people in the cart on my dinner the other night and they broke out in big grins. I asked where they were from and what cuisine and they told me they were Bangladeshi.
