Top 10 Best Karak Spots In The UAE


Weather like this and no Karak in your hand? Blasphemy!

The staple drink of choice in the UAE is this steaming hot cup of deliciousness, brewed to perfection by experienced professionals with calculated water-to-milk ratios

Besides the taste, what adds the most flavour to a Karak is the love with which it is poured out for you.
