Philippine Ambassador to Kuwait Alberto Monsanto officiated the ceremonial cutting of the ribbon to open Danny’s Restaurant, a new restaurant located along Bin Kaldoun Street in Hawally on Thursday afternoon.
Owner and partner of Danny’s Restaurant, Danny Tumbagahon with spouse welcomed guests to the official opening of the first outlet in Kuwait. Tumbagahon told The Times that the restaurant offers Filipino dishes and a selection of other cuisines as well.
He added that Hawally is a strategic locale to open a restaurant as many Asians in particular Filipinos reside in the area. The restaurant offers Filipino delicacies and favorite home-cooked dishes along with delicious local Arabic cuisine. Tumbagahon also noted that catering and weekly buffets will be available soon.
Ambassador Monsanto lauded Filipino entrepreneurs such as Tumbagahon for taking the initiative to promote sumptuous Filipino dishes in Kuwait and for OFWs to be served with the home cooked food they crave. The event was attended by officials from the Philippine Embassy, Filipinos and local members of the press and invited guests.
