Chibog – a Filipino slang word that means “eat” or “food” – this is a description posted on the wall of the restaurant and that’s exactly what you can expect to do when you visit Chibog Restaurant. Located at Al Seef Tower 2, Cluster U in Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT), this restaurant specializes in traditional comfort Filipino cuisine.
We visited this place one afternoon and had a wonderful time eating some of their hearty dishes. The interior was cozy, with friendly service and a nice atmosphere. The menu offered a wide selection of dishes, including classic Filipino favorites such as Sinigang na Bangus, Beef Kare-Kare, Pancit Palabok, Chibog Signature Beef Ribs BBQ, Chicken/Beef Sisig, Chicken/Beef Dinakdakan, Tapsilog, Beef Bone Marrow, Lumpiang Shanghai, and more.

How Chibog Restaurant Started
Chibog started as a Cloud Kitchen last July 2022 in Al Quoz, Dubai. Their operations were focused on handling deliveries and catering only. After a few months of testing the market, they made a business plan and pitched a physical restaurant concept to possible investors.
Their pitch was successful and after going through business license applications, approvals, and inspections from Dubai authorities, they were able to open the doors of their very own restaurant in JLT in November 2022. Chibog Restaurant now handles dine-in customers, catering, as well as delivery in the area.
We are glad that more and more Filipinos in the UAE are building their own businesses. After all, the Pinoys in UAE are a strong 650,000 bunch here. It’s good to learn about fellow kabayans venturing into different thriving businesses and going beyond the employee setup.

Beef BBQ Ribs
90’s Batang Pinoy Vibes
We were able to talk to the co-owners who are young professionals and they mentioned that they’re proud to introduce Filipino food to other nationalities in Dubai. They provide authentic and classic Filipino comfort food.
As a Filipino, when you dine in their place, they want you to feel the nostalgic 90’s Filipino “Batang Pinoy” vibes and enjoy the food.
