Elchi Chai Shop is run by two sisters, Sayyeda and Sukaina Ebrahim, who want to share the authentic chai of their Indo-African heritage with Toronto. This cafe makes fresh and wholesome Parotha wraps in-house daily, great for lunch or dinner.
They import their chai from Kenya. All teas are brewed in samovars behind the counter, consisting of the girls’ recipes of raw spices in boiling hot water.
Not just a tea shop, besides really good authentic chai, they serve real feel-good food. Inspired by a fusion of East African & Indian cuisine, they serve everything from tandoori chicken wraps to masala fries to s’mores parothas. Come in for a quick bite or dinner with the family.
