Bangladesh Food in Chicago

I wrote a post on Chowhound on The Sonargaon Restaurant, the only place in Chicago I am aware of, that serves the food of Bangladesh. When the family and I ate there, we had for dessert, ras malai, the dessert of fresh cheese curds and condensed milk. Sonargaon told me it was a Bangladesh version, but it tasted like any other ras malai. My friend and guru, Zim finally got around to explaining it for me.

It seems that ras malai is essentially a Bengali/Bangladesh dish, so pretty much all ras malai, where ever it is served in Chicago, is serving the Bangladesh version.
