SquareMeal Review of Chai Ki - Toddy Shop Bar

In their native Kerala, toddy shops are routinely set in makeshift shacks, but you’ll find this one occupying a concrete shell amid the soaring canyons of Canary Wharf. It’s the drinking den attached to Chai Ki (Roti Chai’s Docklands sibling), and the sleek, post-industrial decor is as slickly sewn together as the clientele’s Armani suits. Nevertheless, both drinks and street food here successfully evoke the subcontinent. Order the house toddy (Ceylon Arrack, pineapple, and milky, spiced masala-chai tea); a Red Mist (gin, red wine and grapes); or a G&T (Tanqueray Rangpur, cranberry juice, lime and tonic, £6.50), one of a selection of fruity takes on the classic sundowner. Breakfast on savoury pancakes, kedgeree or omelettes with a Mumbai-style Bloody Mary, and from noon tuck into tasty tiffin, made to share: aubergine, snow-pea and sweet-potato korma (£9.50), perhaps; or pulled pork shoulder, coconut, curry leaf and green chilli with Malabar paratha.
