I lived in New Orleans, Louisiana for over 30 years.
It is one of the largest shipping ports in the USA.
I worked security for about 10 years. Many of the foreign ocean going ships requested security.
Well the security detail would often eat with the crew on the ships while in port.
I was introduced to many nationality's of different crews and their native cuisine.
Many of these ships had Bangladeshi crews and cuisine.
They always had the best food.
They did not cook "American" for us it was their everyday food and they allowed us to enjoy a meal with them.
At least one of the crew could always speak English often there were several that could.
Conversations and questions were always lively and often about "America".
Many had relatives in the USA so we always had mail to post for them.
Time spent with the Bangladeshi crews was always a pleasant experience.
