A while ago I read an article in the New York Times about how Bengali immigrants were making Hamtramck (of all places) their first stop upon coming to the United States. As a devotee of Indian/Pakistani/Bengali/Sri Lankan/etc food, I have been meaning to visit the area on one of my semi-annual trips to Michigan. For my next trip I have penciled in "Eat great Bengali food" for one of the weekend days.
Have good, authentic restaurants popped up in the neighborhood? Do they offer any unusual items? Can anyone recommend one?
