Karak and Paratha are ingrained in Qatari culture ever since childhood. Right from school days to later in the adult life, a cup of Karak and the fluffy parathas are part of the daily routine of any Qatari. We created Baba Chapatea out of our love and passion for Karak. The success of our first outlet in Wakra and repeated requests from our loyal fans prompted us to expand the café into other parts of the country.’
