Masala Chai Snack Bar, Vancouver

Has anyone been to this newish place at the corner of Spruce and Broadway? It was closed at 8:45 when I went by tonight or I'da stopped in to check it out...

  1. Stopped by today but did not eat. This new snack bar is affiliated with Athithi on Burrard near 8th. A small team table here and "lunchy" things -- not really appealing to me but there were lots of takers today just after 1 pm.

      Stopped in today. Jackfruit pakoras! New one on me.

        Deets, please! What else did you try? Was it tasty? I wasn't blown away by my one meal at Athithi...

          Sorry, should have said i didn't eat there.

          The jackfruit pakoras were the most interesting thing there. There were the requisite whole wheat wraps in the window but that's about it.

          1. re: repartee

            Jackfruit pakoras? Sweet or savoury, I wonder? Someone needs to TOFTT.

            1. re: fmed

              I'm guessing savoury. I'm with repartee, though, the offerings looked pretty plebeian. Was the tiny steam table still there right at the front door, repartee?

              1. re: grayelf

                I can't recall seeing it, grayelf.

    2. Would not recomend
      Very poor customer service they pulled the I dont speak English card when I went in for help when I locked my keys in my car! and the guy at the counter was ASIAN so weird but thank you Masala Chai for helping out a young girl in time of need
