Chiya Chai has announced the opening of its second venue—a chai-focused, quick café in the Chicago Loop at 79 E. Madison St. The new endeavor by the family-owned business is slated to open in early June of 2021 and will bring its chai program—over 150 combinations—to Chicagoans and visitors alike.
“We are so grateful to bring our chai program and chai-inspired Nepalese and Indian menu favorites to even more Chicagoans,” says Rajee Aryal. “We’re enthusiastic to share our love for the art of chai with our customers and hope this new spin-off of our Logan Square café and restaurant brings even more expansion in the future.”
The new location will focus primarily on chai—up to 150 combinations brewed using both modern and traditional methods—while still offering a curated menu of food that pairs with the beverage, such as samosas, chaat (Indian street food), dumplings, sweet and savory pies and curry bowls.
