Back home! How I've missed my lovely #Astoria neighborhood and New York.
And Bengali food!
Seriously it's been over three weeks that I left Bangladesh, and while I've had plenty of good Indian & Sri Lankan food in that time, it's just not the same. You know?
Lucky for me, my friends at @jhalnyc will be at the Socrates Sculpture Park in Astoria tomorrow (Sat, 10/14 from 11am-3pm) for Queens Food Day, whipping up some popular eats from Bangladeshi streets -- like this "jhal muri", a spicy puffed rice snack tossed with cilantro, onions, mustard oil and chillies.
I'll be there munching away to support this amazing organization that's not only highlighting #Bangladeshi cuisine to the world but is also helping many immigrants from Bangladesh transition to a new life in the US.
Follow @jhalnyc to learn more about their story and please share this with friends & family in NYC who might be missing their Bengali street food!
P.S. the #jhalmuri in this photo is not by #JhalNYC -- but you get the idea. 😜
Update: They will also be at the @queensnightmarket afterwards tomorrow & next weekend.
