Oks Manoks is a fantastic little delivery-only Filipino restaurant in Karama. It specialises in what may be the best Lechon Manok or spit-roasted/rotisserie chicken in Dubai. Available in four distinct flavours, Original, Spicy, Honey Roasted & Inasal Roasted, their birds are near perfectly cooked and insanely delicious. Best enjoyed with some rich, almost caramelly, lechon manok sauce and tangy papaya atchara, it is a treat I least expected from a cuisine I most associate with Bulalo and Adobo. In addition to their superb chicken, Oks also serve the most amazing Pancit Bihon Guisado (stir-fried rice noodles) I have had in a while. Generously topped with sautéed shrimp, chicken and vegetables, this super popular Filipino dish is addictive. Ordering from Oks Manoks is as easy-peasy as…um, eating pie. It is a restaurant I have no reservations in highly recommending. A special thanks to June for accommodating our out of the way order – you made our Ate’ Flor’s birthday celebrations all the most special.
