If Bangladeshi cab drivers are lucky enough to get a fare to outer Brooklyn, they’ll likely head to one of this avenue’s many cheap snack shops. The spot with the biggest crowd of locals is Bukhari, where you can grab a spicy lamb tikka kebab ($6), or a nutty and filling pulao, a sort of rice pilaf ($5). Choose a mixed box of Indian sweets ($5 per pound) for later: dense coconut laddoo (fried rounds, each one topped with a single nut); and must-try jalebi (bright-orange coils of translucent fried dough drizzled with cardamom syrup).
