Matam-ih, Clark Freeport

We were looking for a new place to eat at one time we were in the Clark Freeport in Pampanga. One friend suggested that we try one restaurant we have spotted on our way to meetings with Clark Development Corporation (CDC). Matam-ih is supposed to mean 'masarap' or good-tasting. The food at the restaurant was good and the service was also good with the staff knowledgeable about the menu and attentive to customers. They have their own version of singing waiters, which we were told were popular with tourists. The prices were also reasonable and won't leave you feeling for a hole in your pocket. I guess it the place would be perfect for meetings and big groups as it is spacious and the food servings are suitable for sharing.

The restaurant's "command center" where the orders are submitted. Behind it is the kitchen.
Interesting elaborate lamp set-up at the main building of the restaurant
Table set-up inside the restaurant's spacious interior
This one doesn't need a description or explanation
Another gazebo type structure for more private dining for groups
Adobong pusit (squid)
Kalderetang kambing (goat meat stew)
Rice wrapped in banana leaf (apparently it was cooked while wrapped in the same leaf)
Roasted chicken, Kapampangan style
Inihaw na liempo (barbecued pork belly)
Their corn soup is really good and "comfort food" instantly came to my mind.

The center piece is a cast full of handicrafts
I would recommend Matam-ih for those looking to eat good Filipino food at Clark. Parking is accessible via the side street from M.A. Roxas Highway.
