The Project Chaiwala concept came alive with an office tradition by Ahmed Kazim & Justin Joseph, colleagues who would occasionally take a chai break between a hectic schedule of client meetings. The duo recognized a need within Dubai’s bustling urban sphere for spaces where people can take time for breaks. The chai breaks gives a comfort zone to relax and recharge for office goers, shoppers and visitors.
Project Chaiwala presently serves in a location well-known for the best art in UAE and the world over – Al Serkal Avenue, Dubai area, bringing the vision of a welcoming, neighbourhood chai spot to life. The home-grown tea shop, which started out tucked away in independent film hub Cinema Akil in Dubai’s artsy area Alserkal Avenue, is now open in Dubai Media City. Project Chaiwala can be explored by the shoppers and visitors at any time of the day or night. Project Chaiwala’s chilli-cheese toast is also served in another branch in the city in which to relish the spicy bite. The team is looking forward to serving guests at the new venue and hope that it will be the ideal setting for a catch up over a quick bite. This creative space over a cup of tea will let the ideas flowing.
Project Chaiwala uses only ethically-sourced ingredients from organic tea gardens, and its menu takes inspiration from around the world – right from karak spots in Bur Dubai to the spices in Delhi markets. Their signature drinks include karak chai – the company’s secret combination of flavours including spicy cardamom, fresh Darjeeling tea leaves and milk. Other drinks on the menu include masala chai, zaffarani chai and matcha latte. Diners can have beverages alongside that famed chili-cheese toast (Dhs20) and can also get peanut butter and Nutella chai toast, or avocado and eggs chai toast. Foodies can dig into an assortment of fresh and delicious wraps and salads.
Project Chaiwala restaurant has plenty of natural light as well as comfortable sofas and booths for privacy and and work meetings. Guests are all ages are welcome to tryout various offers by the motivated team.
