Time Out Says

You don't go to Grill Corner for the atmosphere. A small, thin, canteen-like dining spot housing just 14 tables in total, the main sensory stimulation comes from six backlit pictures of food, four wall fans, a TV and a radio. Still, there's a reason this backstreet-style eatery off Satwa roundabout is invariably busy with Filipino expats – and that would be the authentically Filipino food. A cuisine criminally under-catered for, especially considering the size of Dubai's expat population, this is a thoroughly decent bet to sample the country’s staples. Newbies can't go wrong with a tapsilog, a set plate combining meat, fried rice and egg into a meal, all for just Dhs15. For your next visit, try one of the pancit dishes (fried noodles), a similarly rumbling tum-filler also at Dhs15. More adventurous souls should splash out Dhs28 on the signature seafood kare-kare, a rich traditional gravy dish which goes well with rice or noodles alike.
