Finding Bangladeshi Cuisine in DC

The Washington Post debuts a new column today that'll focus on "the international cuisines (and the people behind them) found in the strip malls and suburban sprawls." First up today is Bangladeshi food, which it turns out is rather difficult to find here in its most authentic form as "so many Bangladeshi restaurateurs have sublimated their culinary identity to instead serve a modified (bastardized?) form of Indian cuisine, similar to the cultural repression that Washingtonians discover every time they walk into a 'Mexican' restaurant run by former Salvadorans."
