New Bangladeshi restaurant in Norwood (Bronx) - Sadesh
Just had shrimp biriyani from Sadesh, a new restaurant in Norwood, and it was delicious! The restaurant is located at 3111 Bainbridge Ave in the Bronx, and they describe themselves as offering Bangladeshi, Indian and Pakistani food. The menu includes curries, biriyanis, masalas, kurmas, and other similar dishes.
I'm not a connoisseur, so I can't say whether it would be worth a trip for those outside of the area. But given the paucity of options in Norwood and Bedford Park, this is an exciting development.
I love a shop that is full of patrons gossiping and discussing politics from back home, which I have no way of verifying, but am 100% sure was happening with multiple groups of men when we walked into this tiny restaurant in Norwood. This newcomer seems to be an instant hub for the Bangladeshi community in the area. The sign in Bengali on the shop's window translates to something like "from one's own country," and is also the name of the restaurant. (The awning reads "Sodesh" but the pronunciation would be more like Shodesh or Swadesh depending on where the person was speaking Bengali).
The biryani here was said to be in the "Tommy" style rather than Haji, but I would love to know more about that if anyone knows?
