It’s back… 

Great news for foodies: Cult-followed Filipino restaurant Dampa Seafood Grill has (finally) reopened its doors in Deira, Dubai. The renowned seafood restaurant was closed for six months after a fire broke out last August.

The Filipino-owned local gem is best known for their ‘seafeast’ which consists of a bucket load of fresh cajun-spiced seafood – shrimp, mussels, crab, clams – served with unlimited rice and dumped in the middle of the table for diners to get together and eat with their hands. The iconic feast easily serves three to four people and is priced at Dhs157.

With the same look and feel and signature dining experience, the legendary eatery is back winning the Cajun spice hearts of Dubai diners once again. If you hadn’t been to Dampa Seafood Grill before, now is the time to add it to your to-dine lists…
