"A sip of love in every cup"
I'm here with Sawsan Abdillahi and you are the owner of Shay Madhboot which is a popular shop in Abu Dhabi that specializes in serving karak tea and brunch.
We have been open for nearly two and a half years now.
We established Shay Madhboot as the chai/Karak place you can come to read a book or catch up with your friends. Therefore ambience is a big part of the experience.
We always knew our unique selling point would be the karak, 'Shay Madhboot' literally means tea done well which we hope our customers agree as we have put a lot of work in perfecting our karak chai.
I don't believe we got into this to compete with others. I am a big foodie and the ultimate goal was to create a space where you can go to have a great and filling breakfast with refillable cups of karak to your hearts' content. We believe with Shay Madhboot you can get that.
Awesome Karak, flavorful food at a great price!
Right now we are working on bringing more experiences and curated meals to the restaurant.
Launching my own podcast with a friend of mine, and of course reading and discussing good books.
Believe it or not, Shakshuka is by far our best seller and what we are most known for.
Saffron karak, its my go to and sadly I am addicted.
We are thinking of going mobile by end of year first before opening up another location.
If you genuinely believe in your product, then don't give up no matter how bleak it looks. Hang in there and you will see the return. Also don't see this as a money making scheme, it is a revenue generator that requires as much time and effort that you put in as you expect out of it.
I adore Ryoko products! As a photographer, and lover of good quality leather, the pieces we have displayed are uniquely chosen for Shay Madhboot's customers.
We are located on Muroor , 21st Street near the Royal Thai Embassy in Abu Dhabi. We are open 7AM-10PM on weekdays and 8AM - 10PM on weekends and you can follow us on our Instagram page for more information: instagram.com/ShayMadhboot
The first-ever edition of Gentlemen's Expo is coming up next Friday 13th Dec at Warehouse Four where Ryokō will be exhibiting along with a host of local artisans and brands. Timings - 12-6pm. We'd love to see you there!
We’re excited to be a part of Dubai Design Week 2019 where Collective by Ripe is hosting a 2-Day Merchants & Makers Market.
