.You are not Pakistani by heart if you say you don’t crave tea at every second of the day. True Identification of a Pakistani is he/she will never say NO to tea. Especially in this season of Islamabad everyone is always on the look for new tea places around the city and if that place gives you snacks in their menu to complement your tea and on very low prices then What else we need?
Owner of Tuscany Islamabad tapped into this need of Islamabadis and opened a tea point in the heart of Islamabad F-7 known as Chikachino. The tag line of Chikachino is “Pure as Pakistan” because every ingredient used in tea and even the teacups used there are made in Pakistan. It’s kind of a Modern dhaba of Islamabad.
Owner of Chikachino Dr. Amir at first brought his Tuscany’s loyal customers which were mainly pure Islamamabadi girls and boys at Chikachino which attracted people from all around Islamabad and Rawalpindi to come and see the “MAHOL”.
The Vape Enthusiasts
Another segment of consumers is those which are vape enthusiasts and smokers that think showing off their vaping talent is their sole responsibility to the society as Sheesha bars are now banned to do so. They think throwing smoke on especially girls faces is the new way of asking them out. Little that they know!
The Poondi Bazz
This segment belongs to the Pindi boys (no offense) with the sentence of “Chikachino ka Mahol bara mast hai raja jee chalo”. the ‘Poondi‘ boys come in the hope of good ‘poondi‘ and for the chance of socializing.
The Amateur Gulukaars
Emerging singers of Islamabad and Rawalpindi come and perform at the live music session at Chikahino in hope of getting their big break for becoming next “Atif Aslam of Pakistan”. I must say some are very talented.
Islamabadi aunties that feel the need to brag about their “Gucci ki chappal aur Chanel ka bag”. They meet up for their day to day gossip sessions and are often seen in groups of 4!
Universities ki Awaam
We all went through this time of being in universities and getting an urge to go out and eat in breaks despite no money in our pockets. Chikachino is full of students because WHY NOT? Chikachino is “sasta and tikao”.
You’ll find them standing around the Chikachino setup waiting for their turns to get a table because Chikachino doesn’t really believe in gender equality concept. So If No Bachi with you-you can wait BOYS!
But Mouthwatering parathas, crispy stuffed samosas, hot pakoras, papri chat with a hot cup of tea outdoor in this weather is the perfect combination. Chikachino offers different variety of tea such as Masala Chai, Zafarani Chai, Sulemani Chai, Lemongrass tea and most importantly Karak chai that they cook in fiery cauldron, laced with cardamom taste. And also a hint of ginger making it addictive and I’m not even exaggerating, Karak chai of Chikachino really make you addicted to their specific taste and its only for 150 Rs very reasonable as compared to other tea spots in Islamabad. With the free live music sessions on every weekend featuring talented musicians. Chikachino has made its mark among the famous tea spots of Islamabad.
