“Great tasting homely dishes”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

Loved the lechon kawali and a rice dish with fish, forgot the name. The sauce for the fish was so delicious! Lechon pork was crispy and nicely done. Service was quick and efficient. One thing to note is the place is very small and very warm inside!

“Eat at D'Palengke, better ambience! Surprisingly affordable!”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

We got a bit lost when we were looking for Smoke. We found one within D'Mall, but it was too cramped, dark and hot. Plus it was in an alley beside the shops, and there was not a clear, dry path towards that. Luckily, one of us stumbled upon the second branch of Smoke which was going to D'Palengke. That branch looked better and had more air to breathe. It can accommodate a bigger group. I'd suggest going to this branch instead.

As for the food, delicious! And surprisingly affordable. I'd say it was one of our cheapest meals in Boracay. Almost all the items in the menu is served in a hot plate (sizzling plate) and their best seller is Sizzling Bulalo. Must try!

Just note that it's no five star restaurant, so don't expect a waiter to wait on you whenever your glass empties. But we didn't mind since we were no fuss customers as well. All in all, very good food! If you're looking for easy picking food that's easy on the wallet, Smoke is definitely your restaurant.

“Yummy Local Dishes...”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

Went for late lunch, after the lunch crowd disappear. Very friendly staff. Though the place is real small, but the good food makes up for everything. Must try: Sizzling Bulalo - Beef Shank in Gravy, fingers licking good! Deep-fried Pork Shank is good as well, goes very well with an iced cold beer, though ice-blended ice does the trick as well... Personal feel, can forget about ordering vegetables, they just taste weird, not just in Smoke, it's everywhere I tried.

“A good place to enjoy Filipino food”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

It may be small but the food is always cooked freshly. At any time of the day or night, Smoke is a affordable place for a good meal. The delivery is fast and great.

“Nice local food”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Not the cheapest local food joint but probably has larger servings and some of dishes are good. The crispy bulalo was good.
