Smookata grand opening at tiendesitas

Thursday, October 24, 2013

And here we are! Smookata's grand opening at Tiendesitas in the heart of Pasig City. This actually the first in the Philippines. Smookata is a great hit in Singapore and other Asian countries.  

Let me just tell you about Smookata. Its is found by Mr. Jason Phua and Mr. Bernard Abellar. They are very close friends. 
In Singapore,they always go in a Mookata place near their office and soon became their fave spot to hang. Mookata is Thai for Pork Skillet,it's more commonly known as Thai barbecue. Unlike the regular barbecue that its grilled,Mookata is cooked in a shape liked dome with a shallow trench on its margin of broth. Grilling begins with a piece of pork fat placed at the apex of the grill. This serves as the source of oil followed by meat or seafood. And so the Mookata meal cooking begins..
 As soon as Mr. Bernard arrived here in the Philippines, Smookata had its full throttle.
 Opened the branch in the Food Village in Tiendesitas, Pasig city.
