Another one bites the dust?

I know I mentioned eating at Pilar's cafe ... and then suddenly it was gone.

I think I stopped off at its replacement, La Zamaan, once about a year ago -- getting a small sandwich to go. Then near Christmas I took a friend there. I was set to order something mundane to drink, but he asked "what is Shay Ahmed" and I realized I NEEDED to order that. And I had a miraculous salad where I actually ate green bell pepper (raw) and didn't hate it. And then month and change ago I took another friend there. (Got more Shay Ahmed.) And then this week on the way to work, I noticed that their name was gone from the overhead. Much sadness.

What is Shay Ahmed?

Spicy tea. If you've gotten a Masala Chai at an Indian restaurant, but not put the milk in, it's similar.

I don't know what-all spices went in -- probably cardamom, maybe star anise, cinnamon I'm not sure. And it was sweetened with honey. They brewed it (black tea, I'm pretty sure) in a large container -- it took NO time to get a refill, and I WANT their recipe.
