Karak Chai and Social Spaces
If the UAE were to have a national drink, then karak chai or strong tea would hands-down be the drink of choice. With roots in South Asia, karak is a spiced milk tea that has become a staple of Dubai’s nightlife —yes, nightlife. In the late evenings and until the early hours of the morning, cars would line up outside karak cafeterias and the drivers would holler at a waiter for some tea. Karak chai is not just a drink, it’s a symbol of Dubai’s communities and informal spaces. Get your friends to any Karak chai cafes with seating areas in Satwa and spend a couple of Dirhams and hours catching up and marinating in the social vibes of Satwa neighborhood and the intoxicating aroma of the chai.
