New Bangladeshi place in Arlington

bougouni | May 18, 2011 06:53 PM

Stopped by the new Deshi Spice on Lee Highway and George Mason, in the same strip as Saran, last night. Totally empty and when we asked the ?owner? to turn down the TV, he said he was watching it! Other than that, however, he was extremely nice, helpful and solicitous. Most of the dinner menu is typical Indian; we were told that there are more Bangladeshi specialties on the lunch buffet. We had chotpotri (spelling?), which was basically soggy chat with rather flavorless tamarind sauce, and then really good dal palak, mediocre chicken jalzeeri (spelling?), good tandoori paratha and good garlic naan. I had a made-to-order lassi with just a bit of sugar, the way I ordered it, and we had dessert of ramsalai on the house. Definitely a place to go back to.

Sorry for my spelling!
