Restaurant Review: Sagada Lemon Pie House (Mountain Province)


Sagada Lemon Pie House

The Japanese-style dining set-up
Sagada Lemon Pie House, first opened on March 21, 2008), is home of the delicious lemon meringue pie.  

The restaurant is quite a long way down the South Road, past the iconic Yoghurt House, but you do get to burn some calories along the way and work up an appetite for what's ahead. 
Upon entry, you are first enthralled by its cozy, Bohemian-inspired ambiance.  On the right are low wooden tables with woven mats and throw pillows for seats, a set-up that reminded me of the Japanese dining style.  They also have regular tables and chairs.
We, however, preferred the regular tables and seats

The must try lemon pie
Their prices are quite reasonable - lemon pie and egg pies go for PhP30/slice, same with a cup of Sagada's famous brewed Arabica coffee (PhP30/cup).  
You can also placed an order for a whole lemon pie (PhP200) which you can pick up before you return to Manila.  
The super fluffy lemon pie, though you could distinctly taste the mild sourness and tanginess of the lemon curd, was somehow sweetened by the meringue on top.  
For those who don't like strong, sour tastes, the soft and light-flavored egg pie would be more to your liking.  They also serve the seasonal, not-too-sweet blueberry pie (available in early summer).
