Located within the boundaries of the the municipalities of Atimonan, Pagbilao, and Padre Burgos in the province of Quezon, Quezon National Forest Park or Quezon Protected Landscape is a 938 hectare protected landscape.


First established as a national park on October 25, 1934 because of Proclamation no. 740. The park covers a total area of 535.08 hectares. The park area was enlarged to 983 hectares on August 5, 1940 with Proclamation no. 594.

He was known as the God of the Kitchen. Yakiniku on the other hand means grilled meat in Japanese. While "Smokeless" and "Grill" need not be explained further. 


"Nuff said!" as they say, what else should we know about a restaurant named after the Japanese God of the Kitchen... Just kidding. Join me as we go on a food trip at Sambo Kojin Smokeless Grill.


For those who doesn't know Sambo Kojin Smokeless Grill is a buffet restaurant with several branches in the Philippines. The restaurant is known for their raw, grilled, and cooked Japanese and Korean dishes.
