We Filipinos are known to be hearty eaters, wherever we are in the world. In fact, eating our favorite Pinoy dishes can help beat homesickness any day! In Dubai though, there are a few restaurants that offer pork because pork is considered (haram) and establishments need to have a license to sell these items to the public. One of the more famous restaurants that serve pork is Lamesa Restaurant at Asiana Hotel in Al Muraqqabat.
At Lamesa, you’ll be treated to a fantastic buffet that includes pork dishes: crispy pata, dinuguan, lechon kawali, sinigang, sisig, and more! Aside from Filipino food, the restaurant also serves a variety of Asian cuisine, including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Thai dishes.

For those who don’t eat pork, there are other dishes that you can also try at Lamesa. One thing I’d like to add that was really good was the pizza. They also have some desserts and fruits for you to try.
