DID YOU KNOW THAT? Little Manila Restaurant is the first Filipino Owned Restaurant in Qatar

I remember visiting this quaint little restaurant at the back of Hamad Hospital when I was still new in Qatar. Very simple, very homey, very familiar ambiance. Today, as we are approaching the end of our Season 4 of BEST LIFE QATAR READERS CHOICE, I thought of revisiting the very first restaurant here in Qatar.

Now managed by the son of the owner, Mr. Boyet dela Cruz shared during our quick chat that they’ve been in the business since 1988. This second generation owner is striving to continue the legacy of his parents and hoping to stay in business for as long as possible. They are serving our well-loved Filipino comfort food and are also accepting bulk orders for parties.

I love that the interiors still has the old cafeteria vibe, even comparable to typical Korean restaurant in the seaside and provinces like that of Hometown Chacha – but very Filipino.

If you miss this feeling, please pay them a visit soon!
