A taste of the Arabian Gulf in Vienna
Nestled within Vienna’s Cedar Park Shopping Center—in a renovated former vacuum cleaner repair shop—lies an ethnic treat unlike any other in Fairfax County, and perhaps unlike anywhere else in the United States.
It is the Crepes & Karak Café, and according to proprietor Ashraf Hamid it is the only place west of Europe that you can enjoy authentic Karak tea; a blend of black tea, milk, sugar and cardamom that is prepared by boiling the combination together over low flame.
Hamid says Karak is one of the most popular hot drinks in the UAE and Qatar, as well as in the South Asian countries of India and Pakistan.
