Interesting Facts:

ALL MEN CREW? It’s quite intriguing… According to Randall, a crew and relative of the owner, “we do not have discrimination with women, it’s just that most of the girls in our family is not in-line with hotel management and services, unlike us (men crew) who took culinary and hotel management. Though we had 2 girls in the house, one in the lobby information and one dishwasher (often comes). Furthermore, efficiently men can handle almost all the tasks like cooking, cleaning, carrying luggage, etc. By the way, some crew are not our relatives, the owner is very kind to all. When one needs job, he offers a job here or in the farm.”

MENU. Plenty of variety to choose from, quite reasonable prices and the cheapest compared to other restaurants and cafes in the town.

Food Review: Very kind service and they serve plain rice unlike the other restaurants which mix red (malagkit) rice. Also the cheapest restaurant.

Len had fried bangus, with side dish and plain rice, she had the plate down! LOL! A satisfied customer. While Violet had pancakes, yes it is for dinner. She asked for an extra butter, it was given free of charge. Nothing spectacular about the 2 big pancakes.


Taste of Sagada: Homestay’s Diner

After the amazing yet tiring cave connection,  a quick shower and a good dinner is  badly needed by the team (Len, Jun, Kim and Violet).

It’s almost 8:30 and Sagada curfew is at 9 PM. Goodness… Homestay’s diner is still open!

Food: Chicken BBQ

Review: The place is all wooden and it feels staying in a log cabin. The food was not so good, the chicken is originally fried (cooked earlier) and  BBQ is just spread into it to give it a taste. The pack is hungry so who cares? Good thing is that the male host is very kind, entertaining and accommodating plus the fact that Milo (hot choco) is only 20 pesos with unlimited creamer is really great. 🙂

Outside the diner is also awesome, they had bonfire area.


Taste of Sagada: Lemon House Pie

Sweet Love for Pies. A delightful craving and addiction.

A heartbreak caused that it’s too far (from home) to grab anytime.



After the lunch out in Salt & Pepper, Violet insisted to look for the Lemon House Pie, well, Len agreed. It’s a long walk to find it but the agony of walking is bearable, once savor the heavenly taste of the pies. Oh droooling here! Teleportation please! Huhuhu! Missing it too much already. I love you, egg pie! 😥

Review: Awesome interiors. Love the low-rise table and even the dining area inside. The pies are great (Violet can eat the whole thing all day and wishing to be eating one at this very moment)!
