This is one of those short, random, tiny posts that is akin to a public service alert. One that just wants to let you know about something.
I was alerted to this place on Jumeirah Beach Road by @MaliZomg who said there was a karak place in the area, right after Ijaza Cafeteria. Okay then. One day I saw it, a block after Ijaza, with a little peeping sign that said “Karak”.
That’s it. No frills. So managed to find parking, went in and got a cup of hot, steaming and perfect karak for AED1. Seriously. I’ve gone later and filled up a flask and got charged AED 12. It lasted all day. Also had hot samosas one afternoon with my chai, those were also AED 1 each.
So this PSA is to let people know… if you’re on Jumeirah Beach Road and want some karak, this is the place to go. Be warned that in the evenings it’s hard to find parking, but the back roads have spots + if you park a little ahead, it’s not too bad a walk. The map below is accurate – hope it helps!
Where do you like your karak or chai? Let me know so I can try it out!
