The fact that Korai Kitchen only offers an all-you-can-eat buffet has its pros and cons. On the plus side, the Bangledeshi food at this BYO spot in Journal Square is fantastic, and for $15 at lunch or $20 at dinner, you can get seconds or fifths of things like curry goat that falls off the bone, vegetarian bhorthas that soak up all of the rich sauces on your plate, and pistachio bread pudding that’s worth a visit on its own. The only downside is that by the time you throw in the towel, any plans you might have had for later in the night will be swapped out for chamomile tea and reruns of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
