DUBAI – Burger and bubble tea joint Mama’s Tea-riffic Snacks opened in Dubai’s Al Nahda area on Saturday (September 18).
The opening of the Filipino-owned business was graced by Philippine Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes and wife Dr. Yasmin Balajadia-Cortes, Philippine Business Council President Bobby Carella and Expat Media CEO Mars De los Santos.
Cortes praised Mama’s Tea-riffic Snacks as an example of “resilience” during the time of pandemic, saying the venture is one of around 20 Filipino-owned businesses in the UAE that opened in September.
“This represents the heart and soul of the Filipino to just rise above the challenges we are faced with, pandemic or not,” Cortes said.
Terrific snacks served at the restaurant include different kinds of burgers, hotdogs and sandwiches, milk tea, smoothies, coffee and more.
