Mirza Ghalib Street has a string of modest restaurants (few of them iconic) serving Bangladeshi food that caters to Bangladeshi tourists and locals alike. The Bhoj Company is one such establishment, only it is younger (opened in 2012) and swankier, with minimalist but smart interiors and a snug seating for about 30. The menu is short, but has all the favourites (such as chital machher muitha and shorshe ilish) in place, including the mandatory kochu pata chingri. However, those is the know order for the kochu pata ilish bhapa (hilsa, taro leaves and mustard steamed to perfection) here. Plus, they make a fantastic, home-style aar machher jhol, a soupy curry made with Aar (long-whiskered catfish), potatoes, brinjal and bori (dried lentil pellets) and the chicken curry (cock, actually), best paired with some plain rice, is surprisingly close to a simple home-cooked murgir jhol minus the potato. For desserts, ask for the kulfi, a house recommendation.
