Simple and chic chai outlet at Alserkal Avenue!
We were invited to try out the place and decided to go during the weekend.
Located in Alserkal Avenue next to Akhil Cinema was the small cafe with outdoor seating which would be perfect with the weather getting better.
The place had yellow lighting that gave the place a relaxed atmosphere and went seamlessly with the wooden seating arrangements. It has pink walls with some quotes around which makes it insta-worthy too.

Project Chaiwala Signature [AED 15]: This was something unique, tea with chocolate flavor so it would not suit everyone’s palate but us being chocoholics this was just meant for us. We would have preferred if the tea was a bite more hot since what we drank seemed like it was made and kept for a long time.
Vada Pav [AED 15]: Isn’t it a classic combination, a cup of piping hot tea and the famous street food that go so well together, and with the weather turning out to be cooler, people would start craving for this duo. Our suggestion would be a cup of karak and a vada pav along with some good company and your day would go great.
Sweet Potato Masala Fries [AED 15]: We are not huge fans of sweet potato fries but the seasoning and crisp slices of these fries got us hooked, something we enjoyed after a long time.
The Desi Smashmosa [AED 20]: All the samosa fans stay alert, we got something that would interest you all. Instead of the regular triangle shaped pastry, the same flavors are mashed into an amazing mix. This was a blend of sweet potato, carrots, some chickpeas, topped with, pomegranate molars, mint chutney and bhujia.
Chili Cheese Toast [AED 20]: Crisp sandwich with melted cheese still got us drooling just thinking about it, stuffed with veggies. We definitely recommend trying it out.
Beef Brisket Wrap [AED 40]: Toasted wrap with slices of juicy beef brisket, some pickles, mayo and bbq sauce. We felt the wrap to be a bit dry, so we would suggest to increase the portion of the mayo to make it better but loved the flavors otherwise.
Our server did a great job of hosting us.
The prices are slightly on the higher end, but if the split and spend policy is applied you will not feel the pinch.
We shall come back for another round of the signature tea and the chili cheese toast.
