Savor Pinoy Dampa’s ‘Sha-BANG’ of Filipino seafood flavors

Jan. 10, 19 | 7:02 am

If you thought that finding delicious seafood meals would be hard since the UAE is a landlocked country, you’ll be surprised with the amazing selections of fresh fish, shrimps, mussels, crabs, and more with that signature flavor that you can find at Pinoy Dampa restaurant located just a few steps from Al Rigga Station in Dubai opposite Hotel Ibis Al Rigga.

The restaurant serves a huge selection of seafood dishes cooked the way you want: Grilled, Fried, Steamed, and many more Filipino-inspired methods of cooking. Here’s our review of the seafood restaurant:

The Ambiance

The moment you arrive at the restaurant, you will be welcomed by their attentive courteous staff who will take you to your seats. The place is warm and cozy with decent lighting as you enjoy pleasant conversations together with friends or family. The staff are also ready to suggest their specials which their frequent and returning customers always go for.

The Food

We had always been curious about their special “Sha-BANG” sauce so we ordered and got served with their savory seafood boodle fight with their signature sauce. Our taste buds just filled with pure delight and pleasure it lives up to its promise of giving that delicious taste with a ‘Bang!’ of seafood sensations in your mouth.

Their intricate methods of cooking brings out the flavors of the sauce infused with their shrimp, mussels, crab meat, together with its corn and crab balls – all while maintaining that balance of not overpowering the freshness that you can taste with each bite.

We were also served with their Grilled Squid and their Bangus both grilled and served at the right temperature which come with a tangy and tasty salsa that enhances that counterpoint concept of taste. One can tell that the chef carefully maintained the flavors of the seafood and the salsa so as to complement each other.

And wow, their Lobster and their Mussels served with cheese on top is definitely something first-time goers shouldn’t miss! Diners will savor the premium Swiss cheese paired on top of their well-cooked seafood bringing with it a delightful taste of the seas.

To help you down all of these scrumptious dishes, Pinoy Dampa Restaurant also serves a selection of Mojitos including Health is Wealth, Berry Happy, Passion Fruit, Blue Lagoon, and Adams Apple.

The Verdict

Pinoy Dampa sets itself apart from other boodle fight and seafood restaurants with a promise of a wide selection of flavors catered to the tastes of their customers. With hospitable staff, delicious seafood, and several seafood menu items to choose from, Pinoy Dampa Restaurant is the place to be to fulfill your cravings as you get served with the freshest dishes the seas could offer.

Pinoy Dampa Restaurant is located near the Al Rigga Station in Dubai opposite Hotel Ibis Al Rigga.
