Heritage

Heritage

Gulshan 2

Upscale eatery Heritage serves creative Bangla fusion cuisine in a richly decorated setting. Furnishings include period photos and the largest painting in Bangladesh: a 28-foot-long depiction of life on the Buriganga River, by artist Jamal Ahmed.

To cool down try the Raita, a homemade yogurt sure to lower your internal thermometer a notch. Prawns are an important part of the Bangladeshi diet. Dig in to the Chingri Malai Curry, a richly spiced dish of tiger prawns in coconut sauce. Biryani lovers will delight in either the chicken or mutton version, cooked to perfection.

Club Gelato

Banani

Club Gelato is open late and makes for a memorable closing note to an evening’s meal – Italian food or not! Only the finest, freshest natural ingredients go into their sweet and satisfying frozen desserts. They even hand-roll their own cones! You’ll also find a full menu of hot and cold beverages. Brighten your mood. Drop by for a tantalizing scoop of gelato or sorbetto in a galaxy of flavours.

Club Gelato overlooks busy Road 11, but inside you’ll find relative peace and a spartan décor marked by natural lighting. A full slate of caffeinated and non-caffeinated drinks, such as milkshakes, will satisfy your craving no matter the season. Savour the rich hot chocolate, perfect for those chilly winter evenings.
