Chaii Pot makes Uxbridge ‘better place to visit’
By Aku FuHALAL STATUS Fully Halal
Walking through Uxbridge shopping area just past the infamous Red Iron Burgers, we found a shop that had been threatening to open for a while called Chaii Pot.
The plan was to get a takeaway-tier 4 coffee. But, drawn in by the golden entrance and the fact that they did karak chaii (slow cookedm spiced milk tea), we decided lets give this place a shot instead.
The owners told us they are a Dubai based franchise with Omani roots. Having recently opened, they were in the middle of making an array of wraps for a Deliveroo photoshoot.
They had a good variety of hot beverages, wraps, pancakes (well, at least they looked a bit like pancakes), and desserts.
I saw a wrap called Oman, and asked them what this was. They told me that it’s a simple wrap with Omani crisps and spicy sauce – a snack to complement the tea.
They were also selling the crisp packets called Chips Oman, which I can imagine taste like the spicy local crisps I’ve had abroad with that thicker texture.
Prices were reasonable; atmosphere was nice; tea was fine too; and they offer a good variety of Halal options.
Though these Karak Chai shops are becoming quite common now, though this being the first in Uxbridge, Chaii Pot’s availability makes this shopping area a better place to visit.
