Food trip: Sagada Lemon Pie House

Lemons are uncommon in the Philippines. As a matter of fact only a handful of farms with lemon trees exists in the country today. Majority of the lemons sold in the market are imported. Well, it is not a big surprise... The demand for lemon fruits surged only recently after the Filipinos were "awakened" to healthy living.

That is why, it is quite surprising to find a food establishment in the country that is well known for selling lemon pies. What's more surprising is that they are doing this for a decade now... (not to mention, this business is located in the mountainous regions of the Philippines.
Ladies and gentlemen... meet the famed lemon pie

Our food trip today, takes us to the Sagada Lemon Pie House in Sagada, Mountain Province. 
Those wall deco gives the place an ethnic feel.
tsk... this place gets crowded fast...

Sagada Lemon Pie House
opened in 2008. Sadly, it wasn't much of a success back then. The persevering owners didn't give up though. They diligently brought their lemon pies to the public market of Sagada's poblacion until it got a cult following. From there, just like what they say... the rest is history.

I love the interior of this place.

Today, you don't need to scour the public market to taste these scrumptious lemon pies. You ca visit their store in Atey, Daoagan in the town of Sagada. Just so you know, they also serve fresh brewed coffees, egg pies, and even blueberry pies during early summers.
why don't you try a slice first...
I got to visit Sagada Lemon Pie House during my Sagada Tour with my wife. During our visit, the place was crowded with tourists wanting to taste the famous delicacy. What I like about Sagada Lemon Pie House is its very native yet homey ambiance. It's great for dates or barkada bondings.
have one or two to go!

Overall, I would highly suggest that you visit Sagada Lemon Pie House when you are in town.

Check out what they have to offer.
Getting there:

From Manila, ride a bus going to Baguio City. From there ride a taxi to the Dangwa bus terminal. From there, ride a bus going to Sagada. From there tricycles can bring you to Sagada Lemon Pie House.
