Fire hits popular Filipino restaurant Dampa in Dubai

Dubai’s popular Filipino restaurant Dampa is now temporarily closed after it was damaged by a fire.

According to the workers at the scene, the fire at Dampa’s outlet in Centurion Star Tower in Deira on Tuesday (August 15) is believed to have started at around 4am.

There were no immediate reports of deaths or injuries. Witnesses said the area has been blocked off. Nearby restaurants were also damaged by the blaze. An investigation is underway into the cause of the fire.

Dampa means hut or cabin in Filipino. The restaurant, which also has a location in Abu Dhabi, is well known for its seafood, which is put on the table for customers to eat with their hands and includes prawns, mussels, and crabs with white Jasmin rice. The atmosphere and dancing waiters at Dampa are also popular. The restaurant was recognized as a Favorite Local Gem at the Expo Eats Awards just last year. JG/Expat Media
