Budget meal but very tasty

We had bulalo, fish salpicao and pancit canton. Everything was just right, and surprisingly cheap. :) The servings were bigger, than what we expected with their price. We were here on a hot afternoon with our 3 year old. The place is "cowboy style" so not very advisable to eat here with kids.

Tried Smoke Restaurant because of the online reviews I've read. We had to circle around D'Mall as its located between shops and had to wait a few minutes because the place is full of people. Menu is pretty cheap but it comes with good tasting food. I can't forget the incident where the chef shouted while he's cooking and my... More

We always come back to this place whenever we go to boracay. Since high school, I always recommend this place for its good food and serving. Just as I brought the kids with me, I was disappointed as the cooking isn't what is used to be. I had to pour in salt to all of the meals we ordered. My... More

I've been to Boracay many times and my visit is not complete without eating here in Smoke! I always order the Salpicao and The Crispy Bulalo!!! Everything is to die for! Also they have this wonderful beverage called Pineapple Mint juice which is really refreshing...though the waiting may take some time but then its worth it!!!

We had the kao pad - both chicken and pork. They were so delicious, we revisit the place the following day. Heck. We even wanted to go back for breakfast before we leave Boracay! We love the homely feel this restaurant gave us. The friendly and bubbly cook recommended a few dishes for us, which are equally fantastic. He would... More

Absolutely fantastic. We went there because we'd heard good things about its affordable local food; I had beef salpicao [not usually a beef person, but this was one of the best things I've ever eaten] and my friend had the chicken adobo. So, so good. We came right back the next day for round two. They have lots of fun-looking... More

We really liked be there in d-mall (station 2)! It's a bit hidden between shops, and all the people like it, so be prepared to wait a few minutes! Try the tasty pinoy-food wich is really authentic and also cheap! Enjoy - greetings

My friends and I wanted to try good local filipino cuisines and our DiveMaster recommended this place. We loved it. The place was small and cozy and sometimes you have to wait for seats to open up. Since it was our first time trying filipino cuisine, we couldnt compare it to anything, but I'd personally say the food was good.... More

I usually try to try as many new places as possible when I'm traveling but we kept finding ourselves back at Smoke over and over. It was easily our favorite restaurant in Boracay. Later when I was in Borneo I was talking to a girl from Boracay and we both were discussing how much we loved Smoke. The prices are... More

Went here to try the famous Bulalo and found it to be garlicky and way off what the traditional bulalo tastes like. There is quite a wait during peak hours. Other food is ok but i guess you get what you pay for if you're looking for a light budget meal.
