Recommendation by Jen Sta Ana
Smoki Moto is located at the 17th floor of Clark Marriott Hotel in Angeles, Pampanga. It is a lively Korean barbeque and Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant with a modern cosmopolitan feel. It is a high-end Korean specialty restaurant that has two private dining rooms featuring Japanese teppanyaki where diners can grill their meal or have it done by chefs at built-in tabletop barbecues. Its beverage menu offers an array of premium wines, beers, sakes and crafted soju cocktails. I love the whole elegant atmosphere at Smoki Moto. They have an al fresco dining area overlooking the golf course nearby and the mountains. Inside has a very cozy and up-scale atmosphere. A few of the tables have built in grills in them for if you want to go for the Korean BBQ. At the far end of the restaurant is a bar and a bar seating area that overhangs 17 floors high. At night you won’t really see much down. But in when there is ample light, the floor is opaquely transparent. And the view here is also extraordinary since the wall is made of glass. I also loved that lighting fixture over the communal table where vintage lights are like tangled on a worn-out reclaimed wood. Must try are their stews: Kimchi Stew, Bulgogi Stew – they are something else and not the usual Korean stews that you get in other restaurants.
