This restaurant serves up multiple Filipino food brands all under one roof, including Binalot, Jay-J’s, Fruitas Group, Mochi Crème, Zagu and Fiftea. It also has two in-house brands – Kwekie Bites and Breadshop. The concept was brought here by Al Ahli Holdings Group to offer a feeling of home to Filipino expatriates. Given the overwhelming success – the restaurant serves 1,000 customers a day – additional branches will open in Satwa and Karama in Dubai; Sharjah and Abu Dhabi by the end of the year.
