Default Filipina/o Restaurants that sell Pork

Anyone got any recommendations? Mate has his gf coming over and he's not got a clue. Preferably Satwa area?

If it ain't in a hotel there ain't no pork.

I think you're out of luck.

There are a few in Satwa, just walk around till you see one. There's also another Filipino restaurant at Burjuman metro station, by the escalators leading up to BurJuman mall. The smell is always nasty, rather vinegarish, every time I pass it, but it always seemed decently filled with Pinoys.

I'd suggest looking at the Filippino nightclubs, especially in Bur Dubai/Karama.

N.
Karaoke bar in the Marco Polo (I think) called Kit E Kits or something. They're band and shit are pretty good and they do deals on towers of beer + plates of pork.

Been there plenty of times with groups (generally post brunch) and it's fun. Pork is off the chain.

Club 7 in the Park Regis hotel (Bur Dubai) - do a nice Crispy Pata
Jules bar over at the Meridien Village used do to a nice Crispy Pata (haven't been there for a number of years now)

Burjuman you have a Jolly Bees and upstairs (same floor as Fitness First) there's a Filipino restaurant called Barrio Fiesta.
Next to the Spinneys opposite the Park Regis there's Max's restaurant.

I'd go with Jules Bar for dinner, followed by Club 7 or Rockys at midnight/ 1am.

Not pinoy grub, but I'm sure a PF Chang would be appreciated.

The Filipinos in my office love PF Changs and that American tex mex place, Chilis.

Was bored so looked up Jules Bar and one of the first links is for a tripadvisor review. Really like this man at least he's honest, although I'm surprised that he assumes there are men with "good morals"

"We ended up there for the live music which is truly goodbut the place is not recommandable at all for men with good morals. All Le Méridien and Moreover Le Jules Bars is invaded by gorgeous hookers of every style that take the advantage of any slightest eye-contact to rush at yourself and start a short conversation that offers full body massage and any type of sexual service at good price. You refuse politely the first one, sharply the second and you leave the place angry and harassed after the third, while many blue collars seem to be in paradise, making the system run while they're away from home on heavy duties... Pitiful to be honest."

No wonder Meow isn't best keen on you, fairly horrendous grammar and punctuation.

It's Filipina for female, Filipino for male, Pinoy for a group, also into, in to, finally I never said the request was for me, as I live in Abu Dhabi.
