Dubai: Driving 30km for a cup of tea? There are some who would go to those lengths.
Gulf News reader Syed Muddasir Al Deen, a 39-year-old Indian expatriate and resident of Ajman, is willing to drive to another city and sit through endless traffic jams for his perfect cuppa.
His destination - Modern Coffee Shop, in Hor Al Anz area, Dubai.
He said: "I used to live in the same building for almost ten years and got hooked on their 'saada chai' or milk tea. Even though I have moved to Ajman, I go back to keep the memories alive."
Every weekend, Muddasir Al Deen meets up with his friends at the shop to discuss the week's happenings.
With several customers waiting for their cup of tea, Muddasir Al Deen and his friends have to occasionally double park their vehicles on the main road and await their turn.
He said: "I think it is the best and most refreshing tea in Dubai."
