Review: At Chai & Chai, man could live on bread alone

Chai & Chai is located in a stretch of fast-food restaurants serving the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. The eatery is owned by Venu Alla, who enlisted dosa chef Rajesh Kannan to make Indian food and Jordanian chef Enas Khalili to make Arabian food.

Find out in this week's review of Chai & Chai, now posted on Cafe Society.
