When you visit Sagada, It is not just about doing spelunking, exploring caves, and visiting burial sites etc. There are other things that you can do there like meeting the local people, knowing the history of the place and the best part… FOOD EXPLORATION. There are some food establishments that are popular in Sagada and one of those is The Sagada Lemon Pie House.
The Sagada Lemon Pie House is located in Atey, Daoangan, Sagada. If you are from Sagada Municipal Hall, you just walk down the hill and you will never miss it. It just alongside the road(Right side). If you get lost, just ask a local there. It is a famous place so it will not be very hard for you to find it.
HOW The Sagada Lemon Pie House STARTED?
“The Sagada Lemon Pie House is owned by Joseph Daoas. It was Joseph’s mother, Elena Daoas, a native from Candon, Ilocos Sur (married to Bartolome Daoas, originally from Poblacion, Sagada) that started it all. It was her original recipe and she passed it to Joseph that later improved the recipe to make it taste even better.
It took 12 years for Joseph to perfect the recipe. He experimented to get the right amount of flour for the crust and the right texture for the filling. It was five years ago when the lemon pie reached its greatest improvement. But of course, it didn’t end there.
In 2008, The Sagada Lemon Pie House was opened to the public for the first time, but it wasn’t a hit. So Katrina decided to bring her lemon pies to the public market, downtown Poblacion, to get better sales. Soon, more and more people buy their pies, and the rest is history.” – Source: sagadalemonpiehouse.blogspot.com/
When we visited the place, saw this cute dog sitting at the facade of the store… What a great morning for this fur baby. Hedefinitely know the importance of getting Vitamin D in the morning. 🙂
I love the ambiance of this place. The wood furnishing really made the place look ethnic and native. Plus the staff was really nice to us.
I got myself a slice of the famous lemon pie in Sagada. Well, I’m usually not fond of soury taste-like pastries and pies. So, I wasn’t able to finish everything. But My fiance, Rey, loves it and finished as well the remaining of my pie.
You should also try their egg pie (if available) for Php35 per slice. Unfortunately, it is not available at the time of our visit there. Maybe we are just early, since we went there around 7 in the morning. There are more to eat in this house, you may refer to the photo below for the food selections at The Sagada Lemon Pie House.
On your next visit to Sagada, don’t forget to go to The Sagada Lemon Pie House and try it out. 🙂
