Lemon Pie @ Lemon Pie House in Sagada

After a half day of touring Sagada’s adventure spots, I decided not to join my group mates on another adventure activity and instead I decided to go back to the Lemon Pie House to try out their specialty.

Filipino Breakfast @ St. Joseph’s Inn & Cafe

It was black saturday and our third day in Sagada. I woke up early to prepare myself for a scheduled tour in some of Sagada’s tourist spots. I went straight to St. Joseph Cafe which is located few steps away from my hostel. I came in too early, the cafe just opened and the food was still being prepared. Good thing another tourist came in, we had a short chat and decided to order coffee and a chocolate filled bread which I forgot the name.

Buffet Dinner in Sagada’s Log Cabin

Our first night in Sagada was a total blast. After a short nap, everyone went to the Log Cabin for our dinner. Log Cabin is one of the best restaurant in Sagada and during holy week, where there’s a huge influx of tourists, you need to book and reserve your table if you want to experience their ala carte or buffet dinner.

Banana Pancake with Butter and Strawberry Jam @ Rock Inn & Cafe

After visiting Sagada Weaving Center, we went to Rock Inn & Cafe to have some refreshments. Unlike most hostels in Sagada, Rock Inn is quite far from the town center where most restaurants and souvenir shops are located.

Rock Inn & Cafe is famous for its Sagada Orange orchard where you can pick fresh mountain oranges when in season. Unfortunately, we didn’t know that the orange picking season was only until the end of February so we ended up browsing their menu for a snack. (more…)

Pinikpikan Cooking session in Sagada

Traveling is not complete without discovering local food and culinary traditions. For a foodie like me, learning about the recipe and the story behind it is a whole lot more tastier and fulfilling than tasting the food itself.
