    I love dhaba. BTW, once had this real lush-push maash ki daal with red hot naan and doodh patti in a pathan restaurant in Empress market.

    Naswar was optional.

    Back in my days in Karachi we used to frequent this place called BOMBAY HOTEL on Jehangir Road. Basically a Malabari restaurant with awesome Chai with Paratha. We used to go there a lot when playing night cricket tournaments. Rumor was that that hotel had never shut down since it had opened.

    Two other places where you could great chai was (1) Behind the lane behind Mohammadi House. This place was behind the UBL office. A guy on a cart

    (2) On the corner of the lane next to the Masjid (I believe it is called the Kutchi Memon Masjid) near Jans Broast in Bohri Bazar.

    I don’t drink tea. But when it comes to parathas, I can take them in all shapes and sizes.

    @ Razi

    I beleive its called “Bombay Paradise” and its located at Jamshed Road # 3. It is actually one of the frist 24/7 restaurants of Karachi. In its early days, this was the place where all the artists from Radio Pakistan would hang out with others and score their daily gigs as well. As a teenager, I had Chai, Paratha, Unda Ghutala, other daily specials several times but it has been years now. Nearby is an original Quetta Unabi hotel, Nehari place, Fish fry place and a street vendor called Puttan where he sold Bun & Choolaz..OMG that was yummy.

    i used to like cafe pyala in F.B.AREA,i have feeling that there is something *wrong* that you cant stop having more than one cup of tea =)

    BTW,there is a Hindu hotel(i think they ain`t hindu anymore) in boltan market,you can always try their daal chawal and lassi

    Cafe Pyala..yes..although one would assume that chai would be served in bowls but it was served in regular cups while you were sitting on Chaarpais. not to forget Chaai was good. I also remember some good ole Chai Parathas/cholays from Old Subzi Mundi.
