Food is what makes one’s trip more memorable. It’s the distinct taste of local dishes that adds up to your memory of the place and makes the story you bring back home more interesting. This is why they say that in order to make the most of your travel experience, you have to try what the locals eat or what they recommend.

If you find yourself in the South Road of Sagada, you shouldn’t miss checking out the following:

1. Yoghurt House

Yoghurt House

I was only made aware of this restaurant-cafe when a fellow traveler told me about it in 2012. Since then, I told myself that I wouldn’t be leaving Sagada without visiting their famous yogurt cafe.

Strawberry Yogurt Sagada

Strawberry Yogurt

The place is always full whenever I pass by. But I got the chance to eat here when I found myself craving for something sweet at 8 in the morning. It has just opened so I get to enjoy the place without the noise from its usual crowd.

Yoghurt House Rice Meals

Aside from yogurt, the Yoghurt House also serves rice meals just like this Mexican-inspired dish which I had for breakfast.

The food is not cheap but it comes in generous serving. Typical rice meals go beyond PHP 100.

2. Pinikpikan Haus

Pinikpikan Haus specializes in one of the special dishes of the Cordillera region, the Chicken Pinikpikan. The distinct taste comes from the coagulated blood and burned feathers. It was named as such because of its manner of preparation.

It tastes like sinigang which is perfect for Sagada’s cold weather (it goes colder especially on -ber months).

Aside from Chicken Pinikpikan, the Pinikpikan Haus also serves other dishes and my favorite mountain tea 🙂

3. Lemon Pie House

If there’s one thing I find hard to quit, it would be pastries. So I make it to the point of taking a trip to the Lemon Pie House to take a bite to its famous lemon pie.

Because of its popularity, it’s always full especially during peak hours (lunch and late afternoon). Hence, I decided to check it out at 8 in the morning.

Aside from the lemon pie, the restaurant also serves really good lemon tea (my addiction with lemon tea started here). It’s one of the best teas I’ve ever tasted.
