But I did, right on the main street. They even have a grinder for fresh almond butter. It’s not a shop that I expected to find here.

They also have other items so maybe those are better. i-9PukVG9GYz2XgywNvQdnlnkuVKVo1HCA41zSmsMJb4pqlIDz2ts6x_ziTDwKIMsbQ1qsWyI6k-34-BG2s7ncryJ_UkfiO8bh7E5wp_tVBiOKMx6d9_v1EBntNRC0ZFa0n8pxRu8YBSu-Eg6wyTWgxgkrv0m7HdzR_98UKpvf9vO5SDBjWhTqAN0k

The Bread Lover’s Guide to Dhaka

As someone who loves good bread, I find it hard to find European-style yeasty bread in Dhaka. There is plenty of pillowy naan, stretchy rhumali, chewy paratha, and flaky dhosa. When I want European style bread, I go to the following places:

Kings Confectionary: This is where to get long baguette-like hoagie or subway rolls. Plus, the sugared doughnuts are chewy, doughy, and sugary.

German Butcher: They bake their own bread. They call it black bread but it’s more of a whole wheat blend. You can even buy a half loaf if you want to start out with that.

Do Mi Ok: The best sliced white bread in Dhaka. It’s doughy. If you squeeze it, it will hold your finger imprint. They also sell a few other types of fresh bread but it’s the white that I like.

Le Souffle. It is slightly ridiculous how expensive they are. They have a bakery and sell French baguettes and other types. The bread is hard crust sourdough style. They sell croissants and cakes as well.

Nordic Club: They do great cinnamon rolls… the black bread has too much molasses and tastes slightly off.
