In the year 2016, a chaiwala or tea seller from Pakistan became an overnight Internet sensation after a local photographer posted his picture on social media. Arshad Khan is now trending again – not for his good looks this time, but for the fact that he now has his own cafe in Islamabad named ‘Cafe Chaiwala Rooftop’.
Speaking to Urdu News, Mr Khan said that some people asked him to name the cafe “Arshad Khan” but he refused, since “chaiwala” has become part of his identity. According to Daily Pakistan, Arshad Khan has opened a cafe in the city named ‘Cafe Chaiwala Rooftop’. The modern style tea stall serves 15-20 dishes along with tea. Its bright decor has desi touches.
