7 cool and instagrammable Filipino restaurants in Dubai

If hip and cozy ambiance add more life to your appetite, these Pinoy hot spots are sure hit for you. Why not, it's always great to eat in an enticing environment right? But let's set aside food for now, and see how instagrammable these places are. In short, how "millenialistic." (I just made that up)

Here are seven restaurants I've been to with cool and comfy interiors.

1. Carinderia Ni Tandang Sora - Centurion Deira
Sosyal na karinderya. It's a gallery of Philippine heroes and their key contributions in the society.

2. Bodega Streetfood - Centurion Deira
 Hideout ng mga tirador ng streetfood. Funky 'battleground' for the hip and chic. Bruno Mars will love it here.

3. Uling at Parilya - Satwa
Tambayan style. Since we don't really eat isaw on the streets, it's a great concept to bring THE streetfoods INDOORS.

4. Dampa - Centurion Deira
"Da best ang seafood." Simple but chic, even if you have to eat with bare hands.

5. Hot Palayok - Karama
Pwede! Creative murals.

6. Little Manila - Muraqqabat
Sakay na! The Sarao jeepney wins it for this Filipino foodcourt.

7. Miss Wang - Majestic Hotel Bur Dubai
Hip! Great to unwind in this Asian fusion resto-pub with posh ambience and cool live band.

    Hi I'am Evelyn Russell resident at 808 NE 19th St Oklahoma City, I am a single mother blessed with 2 daughters. For a while now I have been searching for a genuine loan lender who could help me with a loan as I no longer have a job, all I got were hoodlums who made me trust them and at the end they took my money without giving me any loan, my hope was lost, I got confused and frustrated, it became difficult for my family to feed with a good meal, I never wanted to have anything to do with any loan lending companies on the internet again. Not until I met a Godsent loan lender that changed my life and that of my family Through the help of a fellowship member "a lender with the fear of God in him Mr JASON RAYMOND, he was the man God sent to elevate my family from suffering. At first I thought it wasn’t going to be possible due to my previous experience until I received my loan worth $135,000.00 USD in less then 24hours. So my advise to anyone out there genuinely in need of a loan is to contact Funding Circle Loan INC through this official email:- fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 and be financial lifted.
