Bengali Neighborhood and Restaurants

Daniel76 | Jul 10, 2010 08:22 AM

I was sitting in a car the other day on my way to the airport. I live in Brooklyn and this young guy was driving me. We started talking about where I live and where he lives and he told me how much less expensive houses are once you leave the "community".. The word community got me all excited..

I asked, what community? where are you from? where is this community? Obviously, as much it would be nice if I cared anything about his culture besides restaurants, I do not.. He starts telling me he is from Bengladesh and starts telling me about his plight and his struggles and all this really had nothing to do with restaurants..

"Yes, tough..."
, "right..... "uh huh.... your parents,"
"right, poverty"
"ok, your kids"
"Hey, sorry to interupt, but, where the hell do you eat"

Eventually, he tells me that his favorite restaurant is called Dorya and it is on the corner of McDonald and Church..

Does anyone know about this area? Know, any good places to eat there.. I have tried to look up Dorya but, have found nothing about it..

Any help would be appreciated.. I will even listen to your long drawn out issues, if you are willing to help..
