It’s a restaurant and its pretty good at being one.
All food, no crap.
One of my favorite colleagues from work is leaving soon, for good! 🙁 He’s Jordanian (not from Petra) and is averse to exotic food (read filipino or spicy Indian food). For his farewell, we decided to hit a quaint little Filipino restaurant called Dampa Seafood Grill for boodlefight. Location; Ground Floor, Centurion Star Hotel, Deira, Dubai.
Back to what’s relevant- my colleagues take on the restaurant : “Not bad, huh?!”
Personally Im a huge fan of this cuisine especially the Adobo and Pancit (which to me is another form of Hakka noodles- but it just tastes amazing! right?) Despite it being like 37 degrees c, we sat outside (the seating inside was full!) and ordered cajun seafood and rice. The server covered our table with parchment paper and we were instructed to wear gloves and eat with our hands. We were then served hhuuugeee servings of rice and the Cajun seafood dish, fried calamari, and some funny blue green syrupy concoction. (not the best I’ve had, but the seafood from the main course was epic! it tasted like a tropical heaven of on a table (literally). Seriously, if you’re a fan of filipino food, you have to try this place.
Ambience ** (they need to get coolers outside, I mean the food is so incredible, its a pity to sit in the Dubai heat to enjoy that)
