“It will be our first international store in Dubai, and we are excited to cater to our over a million OFWs in the region. There is a demand for real Filipino food in Dubai,” Razon told The Standard.
The restaurant will operate with an all-Filipino crew.
He said the group will apply for halal certification to be able to offer popular Filipino dishes in the MIddle East.
“While OFWs are our primary market, we will still strive to make mainstream Filipino dishes in the Middle East. We can do that with a halal certification,” he added.
