Eid Mubarak, everyone!
Long weekends are much more meaningful and fun as we get to spend them with our families and friends with great food and experiences. In as much as I would like to fly home to be with my family, home comes here for me!
One of The Philippines’ prominent mode of transportation called, “jeepney” takes us to the celebrated and home style dining experience here in Dubai. Little Manila Restaurant is now celebrating their 1st Anniversary and euphoric as it is, this congenial restaurant never fails to rekindle nostalgia through their Filipino ambiance and Filipino tasty cuisines!
With this festive celebration, Little Manila Restaurant brings out the BIGGEST PIZZA in a PAN here in UAE!!! What can we say?
Pizza Fiesta, as it’s called, comes in three sizes:
- 14 inches – served with a choice of red tea or regular Coca Cola – AED 70 (2-4 pax);
- 21 inches – served with a choice of pasta carbonara or bolognese, Buffalo Texas wings and choice of red tea or Coca Cola – AED 205 (7-9 pax); and
- 27 inches – served with a choice of pasta carbonara or bolognese and a choice of red tea or Coca Cola – AED 360 for 10-12 pax
Choose your flavors here:
- Carne pina amore (Hawaiian)
- Centura grande (Super Supreme)
- Granja de venturas (Vegetarian) – ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
- Kwatro kantos (4 flavors: pepperoni, margarita with jalapenos, Hawaiian and vegetables)
- Pollo barbacoa (Smoked chicken barbeque)
- Queso loco de pimento (3 kinds of chees wuth jalapenos)
These pizzas can feed a hungry gang and can be served with pasta and buffalo wings.
Preference of pizza flavors depend on you. For me, Granja de venturas (Vegetarian pizza) got my palate. Though not really fond of vegetables, this flavor is just too good! I could taste everything in it and it is not too much heavy compared to the meaty ones. In all fairness, the bread is so soft and tasty, which I personally like. Chef Jojo used Caucasian dough; which explains the mushy relish.
For a get-together or a simple chat among long-lost friends, this option is just too perfect for lengthy and memorable talks.
For the pasta, Spaghetti ala Carbonara is so creamy and cheddar cheese melted in my mouth. While I enjoyed it, Spaghetti Bolognese is cooked in Italian style which contrasted my expectation of having the Filipino-style Spaghetti. Nonetheless, it tasted Bolognese as justified by name.
Buffalo Texas Wings make these combinations perfect! Tabasco sauce and lemon juice are the main ingredients which explain its sour taste. Taste is anyway good and satisfying; only that it could have been more tender and more finger-licking…
Not yet, Kabayans! Little Manila Restaurant has launched their Chocolate Fudge Cake! For those with sweet tooth or cake lovers, brace your selves! Don’t only judge the cake by how it looks! Taste it and you know it’s worth the try!
Need I say more? Filipinos like it festive and Filipinos love food!
All kinds of Kakanin is just near the entrance! The Philippines’ fiesta feels is just right there!
Byaheng Pinas is now boarding!!!
What are you waiting for?
Games and prizes are up at night up to 14th of September!
