bengal cafe

saw this place when passing by qingdao garden. owner seems really nice. food is quite good; lots of spices used in ways I haven't tasted before. Bangladeshi food is very close to Indian food but the spices are used somewhat differently. Also beef is on the menu since Bangladeshians are (mostly?) not Hindu. I ordered Boot Gosht which is beef with lentils and spices. The beef is quite dry inside due to 2 reasons in my opinion; it has been overcooked and the cut does not have any tendon or marbled fat. Still it's an interesting dish.
Also had the Haleem appetizer which is actually similar to the previous dish but spiced differently. The beef here is more tender but also dry. promising place; will be back to try more.
