The overall interior design of Smoke Bar and Restaurant perfectly matches the baroque vibes from the historical Paoay Church that can be seen from across the place. The resto is not only a feast for the tastebuds but for the eyes as well. While it offers Western-inspired dishes, it also lends its own local twist to its meals. Craving for a pizza with an Ilocano touch? Go for the Laing Pizza, a thin-crusted pizza topped with laing, a dish made of shredded taro leaves cooked in coconut milk. You can also try the smoked pork adobo cooked with balsamic vinegar.
Ilocos truly has more to offer than its picturesque landmarks and tourist spots. Next time you visit the North, don’t miss the chance to drop by these restaurants!
