N. Koshie talks extensively about M. Ashraful's restaurant here in The Indian Express, in the sports section...

"Nihal Koshie tracks down Mohammad Ashraful running a Chinese eatery, as the poster-boy of Bangladesh cricket picks up the pieces of a career that went rogue as he slipped down the slopes of match-fixing

Rankin Street in Old Dhaka is not the easiest to locate for an outsider and even more daunting if you don’t speak the local language. It is one among a series of inter-connected alleys, one not too dissimilar from its parallel next. If you can’t read Bengali, the signboards are pretty much useless. You can get lost and giddy in this maze of poorly-lit alleyways.

The address looks fairly simple: Schezwan Garden, 1/1, Rankin Street, Wari. Should be easy to spot, given the snail’s pace at which you move through evening traffic from Mirpur to Dhaka to reach the periphery of the Bangabandhu Stadium. Or so you believe. The address is lost in pronunciation.

A man on the street, another at the tea stall and the entire pack of rickshawalas can’t pick up my accent. I fail to understand theirs and none of the directions they try to give me as their patience begins to wear thin.

I call the owner of the Chinese restaurant. The appointment’s for 6:30 pm, it’s already 7, and there is an overwhelming sense of being lost. “Don’t go by the address. Just tell a Bangladesh person you want to go to the Ashraful restaurant,” the voice on the line says.

The man on the scooter, scowling a few minutes ago, breaks into a smile. “Ashraful restaurant? Why didn’t you tell me earlier? I will take you there,” he offers congenially, pointing to his two-wheeler.

Schezwan Garden seems a popular joint. Business is just picking up on a Monday evening. The flat television on the first floor is beaming images of the toss before the World T20 match between Sri Lanka and The Netherlands. Mohammad Ashraful is on a couch in one dimly lit corner with one eye on the game while talking on the phone.

Since being asked by the Bangladesh Cricket Board ‘to stay away from any form of cricket’ after admitting to alleged ‘match-fixing and spot-fixing’ in the second edition of the Bangladesh Premier League, Ashraful is at this restaurant every other evening. ... "

The place has improved ever since Motin started hanging out there all the time, if you're cool with MSG and other cancer causing chemicals in your food. I suppose it's his "office" now, kinda-sorta. He usually sits at a dark corner by the TV and talks into his cellphone the way he'd talk to himself in the middle before his panoramic retardation compelled him to throw his wicket away. Not sure if anyone's actually at the other end. Very sad.

Sohel, don't fall for the MSG myth. No research or clinical data support any of the myths surrounding MSG. On ingestion, it breaks down into glutamates and sodium. Glutamates are common in many natural food sources and the body itself generates glutamates during several biochemical cycles including the Kreb's cycle. The only negative would be to blood pressure if you consume too much consume but that would imply you've been guzzling cups of the thing.

This was a PSA brought to you by your neighborhood sciskeptic. You may now resume your normal broadcast.

These days there is ample verifiable research data available on line from trustworthy sources that either confirm or debunk such popular 'wisdom'. That's a different thread. I would be more concerned about the formalin on the fish in the sweet and sour fish or the quality and quantity of the oil in the at Ashraful's.

Aklemalp bhaiya, you would like to come? BD visa is not too expansive and it should not be any trouble for you to acquire. The BD NYC consulate is in Jackson Heights in Queens. You can look it up and all the visa requirements and procedure online. I am sure you can stay at Ahnaf's or Nightwolf's parents house in DHaka.
Okay, if they would not let you in, you can stay at my my parents'.
