Last weekend, we had a quick catch up with my (favorite) tita and cousin. It’s been so long since we had the last one. But since they are from Caloocan, we had to meet halfway, which is Fairview. I found this newly opened restaurant along Mindanao Avenue and immediately planned our catch up there. The restaurant named “Carne Smoke House by Tipsy Porky“.
ABOUT CARNE SMOKE HOUSE
This is under the same management of Tipsy Porky, which offer unli samgyupsal. They recently opened last April 8, 2019. This restaurant is said to be the first smoke house along Fairview.
This 2-storey restaurant’s interior has a light and cool vibe. It has doodle arts around the walls on the 1st floor which was made by the owner’s nephew.
The second floor isn’t air-conditioned because the smoke grill is located here.
About the food, they offer smoked, grilled, fried, silog, wings, pasta, and burgers.
For the side dishes, we had their Coleslaw (59 php) and Potato Salad (59 php). Our favorite was the Coleslaw! For the fries, we got their Carne Fries (100 php).
We had their Buffalo Chicken Burger (170 php). It has complimentary fries. This is new to me so I got curious. The burger was okay. I think it’s better when you eat it hot because we ate it cold already. HUHU.
We had Red Pasta (149 php) which I loved and White Scallop (169 php). According to my cousin and tita, it has legit bits of scallop in it so I think it was really good.
We had their Sexy Sisig (180 php) which was my favorite! The pork was so chewy and really flavorful. It was also a bit spicy so it’s a really thumbs up for me. I suggest they add mayo to make it more delicious. HEHE.
For the wings, we had Smoked BBQ (6 pcs-199 php). I personally loved the flavor even without having a dip just like other wings that I’ve tried. I also commend the big serving size of the wings.
For the chicken, we had their Original Carne Butterflied Chicken (half-299 php). This one was also the crowd favorite. Their special sauce was so awesome! Just a reminder to eat it while it’s hot to enjoy the juiciness of the chicken.
And last but not the least, the main event of the night, we had their Sweet and Smokey Ribs (half slab-499 php). Love how the meat was cooked. It was so tender but not too juicy. The ribs itself was flavorful even without having a dip. But in case you’re craving for some dip, try the special sauce from the smoked chicken, it was good!

I personally loved the ambiance of the place. I found their handmade doodle cute! The food was good. Surprisingly, the price is affordable and perfect for students and millenials out there. I’m planning to go back again and try their other dishes such as Crispy Pata, T-bone Steak, and their Silog meals.
