Seafood Restaurant have sprout out like mushrooms here in Dubai. In fact, a number of Filipino restaurants continues to flourish in the city.Dampa Seafood Grill has been a little taste of heaven. But that heaven is located in the heart of Deira, a few steps away from Deira Metro Station.
The unique concept of the restaurant creates a buzz in social media and quickly gained popularity among filipinos.
This new food destination serves Pinoy foodfare with focus on grilled seafood. But if you are allergy to seafood and feel chicky then you can also try their buffalo wings.
We came all the way from Sharjah but that drive is worth it. The moment you enter you can feel the fun vibe of the place.
Dampa Seafood Grill restaurant is famous in serving fresh seafood cooked to your liking. Although the word dampa is originated as a typical bahay kubo. Hence here in Dubai Dampa is simply means dumped the “seafeast” on the table lined with wax paper sheets.
As a seafood lover my eyes are feasting with the dishes. I can’t hardly choose. I wanted to eat them all! But in the end we settled to order one serving of Dump-@-Seafeast and a dish from the Chef’s Special.
As for the drinks, we shared two kinds of 1 liter Fish Bowl Mocktail which are already included in the menu. Hubby and I chose the Bluer than blue – is a tropical pineapple drink and blue curacao while Tita Raquiza quenched her thirst with Lindsay Lohan- it’s a mixture of passion fruit,pineapple and soda.
They also served a plate of complimentary crackers that taste like chicharap of Chowking.
Then after few minutes our server is standing right next to our table and ready to dumped our food. It’s a pile of saucy shrimps, crabs, mussels, clams and corn in Chipotle sauce.Our server, then, placed heaps of steamed rice in the lined wax paper. Did I mentioned that rice is unlimited. #ehdiwow
And because every dish is worth Instagram, they are offering free wifi. #ansabe
From the Chef’s Special, we ordered Grilled Squid and is beautifully presented in pan.
Cost – AED 168 not bad for four adults and 2 children.
Verdict – The food creates a bursting flavor inside my mouth. You can actually taste the freshness of seafood. Even daddy A agreed that the sauce has loads of flavor too fiery and sweet but doesn’t overwhelm the natural taste of seafood. In short sulit na sulit ang pera!
