The whole world knows that we Pakistanis are foodies! We live to eat, and we eat to live. And the one drink we love the most is none other than tea (chai).
Be it someone’s wedding, an office meeting, a dinner at home, or in a restaurant. Be it breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper, for us every time and anytime is ‘chai‘ time.
However, recently an interesting debate has taken over social, which has divided tea lovers into two!
Twitter user Ayeshay (@champagne_lassi) asked social media if they were team #ChaiRusk or team #ChaiPakora? Since then, a massive debate has kick-started on the platform!

Some claim that there is no better combination other than #ChaiRusk, while others are determined that there is nothing more blissful than #ChaiPakora!
Chai Rusk vs. Chai Pakora – Social Media Reactions
Here are some of the funniest reactions and what Pakistanis had to say:
Shahrukh Waheed is a team player for both! According to him, there is always a time of the day to enjoy the best of what Chai Rusk and Chai Pakora have to offer!
Oh wow. This is a good one. It depends on the time of day for me. Early mornings and late nights, I go for the chai and rusk combo, while in evenings I deem chai and pakoras to be a worthy duo.

Whereas Torpedo was clearly with team Chai Pakora in this debate hands-down!

When I was kids, we used a term “ریلو کٹا “ that person plays for both teams. I want to be that person.

We second Muhammad Usman on this one as this may even be tougher to answer than all the examinations you’ve ever given multiplied by 3! How can one even answer this?
That's the toughest I have faced ,answers reserved/preserved

Asad Khan makes a very valid point here! Samosas are an epic snack to nibble on too!
Pakoras beat any rusk, cookies hands down. Real competition is between pakoras and samosas.

While Dost Mohammad may have just hit a 6 with his ideal snack combo.
