It had a cozy and native-influenced al fresco area.
What awaits inside is a more spacious area. They even have a second floor.

I've spent some of my summer vacations at my mom's ancestral home in Ilocos Sur. Every time we'd go there, my uncle would have our staffs buy a goat. By the time we'd reach the house, there will be a live goat tied to the wooden post by the well. The dried well was said to bring good fortune to the family. The goat will be served to us for dinner as a special delicacy.
How I miss those care-free days. Everyday we would play with the neighborhood Ilocano boys (who used to bully and tease us by climbing up and make noise on our bed room window only to find out they just wanted to be playmates). We would run or bike towards the tobacco fields to play hide and seek, luksong baka, patintero and our favorite of all: tumbang preso. When we hear the church bell rings at 6 o' clock echoing across the entire town, we would head home for dinner which was the highlight of each day. The manangs would set up our marbled folding tables and pair it with plastic stools by the window side so we could have a wonderful dinner with scenic view of the night sky wonderfully lit by stars, plaza light and church light.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
If you're looking for heart warming dishes from the Northern Philippine provinces, Naimas Taste of Home should definitely be on top of your list. Just expect the dishes to have a bolder taste and flavor than its native counterparts. But, based on the impressions of my fellow diners, they seem to like it better.
