Amongst the handful of restaurants we've tried in Sagada (minus the ones that were closed because it's not the peak season 128532) this, so far, has to be my favorite. The ambience and layout is just perfect.

This is going to be a 2 meal review so please excuse all the viands I mentioned. And yes, if my life depended on it, I can eat all 4 meals in one sitting. 128556

The 4 meals are: Pinoy Longganisa, Beef Tapa, BBE (Bacon, Beans, and Eggs), and the Sagada Brew Pasta.

Pinoy longganisa is a dish you want to order if you want to try the Local's rendition of longganisa. Compared to the saltier or garlicky characteristics of the other northern towns, theirs is a more sweet and coarse type of deal. While I'm not a fan of the flavor I have to admit that it's pretty good. Not too fatty and does not have any cheap extenders. Must try if you like the sweeter type of longganisa.

Beef tapa - one of the common breakfast culprits that have grazed the morning tables since my first clear memory of having breakfast. Theirs is a perfect blend of garlic and soy with a hint of pepper. I like how the saltiness isn't overpowering rather complementary to the garlic and pepper components. And the beef? Strips of perfection. I can eat this all day if I can.

BBE - I'm a huge fan of bacon and the serving the gave did not disappoint. My only 2 qualms - the bacon could've been cooked to a perfect crisp (how I like it), and they could've toasted the white bread more. But other than that it's pretty spot on.

Sagada Brew Pasta - this was the most pleasant surprise specially since its serving is good enough for 3 (or 2, or 1 if you're really hungry or carbo loading 128556). The sauce is puttanesca esque but has a different dimension because of the savory Sagada ham (AKA Etag) incorporated. They also used proper Parmesan which melded the components (tomato sauce, garlic, anchovies, ham, olives and basil) very well together. It's a well written orchestra in your mouth!

I know that there are still a lot of other dishes to try but since it's our last day it will all have to wait until we get to go back. But if you're in the area Sagada Brew is your best bet for good and coffee.

First dinner in Sagada and we found this place by accident along the main road. What we gravitated towards was the ambiance - truly cozy and inviting.

Sagada Brew is known for the caffeinated beverages but since we didn't want an evening pick-me-up we decided to try their food. Amongst the handful of restaurants we passed by they have the most offerings - pizza, pasta, rice meals, vegetables, etc.

For this evening we wolfed down on their set meal. I got the Chicken Roulade and my partner got the Roast Beef. Service, even if they had a handful of guests, was quick. Within 5 minutes we got our orders.

Now the look of the food might be identical, because of their "magic gravy", but that's where it ends. I have to admit once I saw it I set my expectations low but was pleasantly surprised.

The Roast Beef was not perfectly cooked and matches the sides well.

The Chicken Roulade was prepared well and had broccoli leaves as stuffing! Pretty good.

We'll be back to try their coffee and other dishes soon! If you're in Sagada it would be best to also give them a try.

Upon arriving at around 2pm, I immediately asked.. "Kuya, may lava cake po?"

"Sorry sir, ubos na."

#Heartbreak

He said they were just starting to make another batch.

So I just decided to eat my very late lunch while waiting for the tour to Lake Danum. Ordered the Sagada Orange Chicken. It was good as I expected. Very sulit for 200 pesos!

Sorry to say this but the hero for me was the salad! The dressing was sooo good! Promise!

After eating, the lava cake still wasn't available so I had to come back another day for the lava cake.

(Patience, my friend.)

I love the place.
One thing i don't like is that they will not give you the receipt, you need to fall in line at the counter again to pay. Hassle.

The foods are delicious but the only problem is that it takes so much time before they serve the food and it's pathetic. We waited for like 1.5 hrs. 128553

If you will visit sagada for soul searching, vacation or just for sight seeing, this is one of the places that you should go and give a try when you're hungry or if you just want to chill.

Sagada Brew serves meal, pasta, coffee and dessert. When we went there, we tried their coffee and cake.

I ordered their macchiato and their lava cake. The coffee was good. The lava cake was just okay, until I reached the middle of the cake. It has hot chocolate inside of the lava cake. And i loved it! I loved the idea of putting it in the center just like the lava of the volcano. 128516

This is the only close to fine restaurant type of eatery in Sagada.
If you want different food you should definitely try here. They have a small place and 2 staffs. One who takes the order and one who cleans up the table. When we get there its a little chaotic and the one who takes the order looks stressed out. But we didnt bother at all, we just want to eat good food. 128522
Food: we had roast beef with Purple rice and salad. The roast beef is thinly sliced covered with mushroom sauce, you dont have to chew it big time! Purple rice is unique taste a little like ube but milder version 128514. Their servings are generous, perfect for crumbling tummies haha. I really liked this meal sooo delish!

For drinks, i've tried their iced lemon ginger shake, it was sooo refreshing, I love ginger already! Plus their peppermint mocha is sooooo addicting too!

I believe that Sagada brew is the most decent restaurant in Sagada.

You should try it when you're in Sagada.

Despite the long lines and the unknown waiting time, we braved the flock of people to have a taste of another loved, famous restaurant, Sagada Brew.

Sagada Brew was located at the far end part of the town center, around 10-15 minutes walk from the tourist center.

We arrived there at around 6:30PM and was a bit surprised when we saw that all the tables were occupied and despite that, there was still a long line of customers willing to wait for their turns to experience the restaurant's dishes.

We instantly placed our orders, hoping that there'll be magic and it'll come in a snap but oh, we were asked by the waiter if we're willing to wait and we said yes, so, wait.

The dark wooden exteriors of the resto gave it that accentuated local, organic look with a casual, cool vibe with its simple wooden long tables and cots inside, good for groups of friends and families. Outside, there was a balcony/terrace looking dining area that gave the place a hipper and nicer touch wherein guests can enjoy people watching, daylight sightseeing and nighttime sky watching. Inside, there were wooden stands for Sagada products that were for sale - Mountain Tea Leaves, Black Rice, Arabica Coffee, accessories, etc.

So, after 1 1/2 hours, our orders finally arrived! We were so happy that every single time our orders were placed, we would clap our hands and scream Yehey! Haha!

I ordered their Pesto Pasta/Creamy Pasta for P150. The serving was actually good for two people. The pasta was cooked just fine, not too al dente. What made it worth remembering was the extra fresh taste of the basil. I could taste the juicyness of the basil leaves, as if they were freshly crushed and mixed with some olive oil and tossed into the pasta. Aaah, it was really flavorful!

Abbey ordered the Vegetables in Olive Oil Pasta for P150. It was the last order to come and when it did, woah, we were so surprised with how huge the serving was! It was actually good for 2-3 pax! The pasta sauce was red, so it looked a bit weird as we expected that it was oil based. The veggies did include tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini and string beans, the most surprising ingredient along with the calamansi on the side. We taught that this may be a pasta/pansit version for them and as a lover of both, I actually enjoyed the mixture of vegetables in a somewhat oil - tomato based pasta. I loved the crispness of all the veggies in it, the freshness of their look too.

Dane ordered their Adobo and the serving was huge too. Some of our new met friends ordered Callos, Kaldereta, etc. and their plates all looked colorful, huge and delicious. We were all actually full and happy with our orders. Sumptuous servings with affordable prices so indeed, it was worth waiting for.

For breakfast the next day, I made sure to go visit Sagada Brew again as I badly can't miss their Brewed Coffee (P50) and Lava Cake (P150), the one in the photo. Good thing there weren't a lot of people the time we went there.

Their coffee was really BARAKO! The strong kick of the bitter taste was tolerable enough for me and was a good pangpagising. I can imagine that it would still taste good if you add creamer and sugar.

THE LAVA CAKE WAS SO YUMMY, THANK YOU HEAVENS! The chewy, chocolatey, gooey cake was so so nice to eat with its perfect texture and sweetness. There were actually chocolate bits inside too. The overflowing chocolate syrup from the inside tasted really well combined with the mini white chocolate on top of the cake. Goodness, every bite was heavenly in all its sense! It's the type of cake that wouldn't make you feel too sinful because it's not too sweet, just sweet enough to let you finish the whole for yourself.

More than the food, I also enjoyed the homey and warm feeling that Sagada Brew gave most especially when the place isn't too full with guests. It gave that feels as if you were really home even if you're far from home. Definitely worth visiting!

Sagada Brew has more variety on their menu items compared to other restaurants in the area. I ordered their chili peppers, which is stuffed bell pepper with ground beef. You can pair it with either rice or bread. I chose rice. They serve black rice here, like any other restaurants in Sagada. The taste of black rice reminds me of Mexican black beans. Their pesto chicken sandwich and bistek Tagalog are also good!

We were stranded in Sagada because of Typhoon Ineng last week. Due to bad weather, there was no electricity and all outdoor activities were cancelled so all we have to do is to eat. Most of the restos were closed. We were lucky Sagada Brew rescued our empty stomachs.

I ordered chicken roulade. The meal was so delicious I really loved it! For only 200 you can have a complete meal (with fresh salad and farmer's rice) with unlimited citrus water and a chocolate crinkle for dessert. On the second day, I had chicken marinated in rosemary. But I liked my previous meal parin.

God bless Sagada Brew and may you have more empty tummies to fill in when typhoon/bad weather strikes. 128522

We overheard that the place serves great tasting food so we decided to check it out over dinner. While we were ordering and talked in Cebuano, the staff said that he was Cebuano and all the other staffs as well. Hahaha. I love the place already. hahaha.

For P200 you get to choose one viand and it comes with rice, a side salad and citrus water.

We ordered Callos which was really really flavorful. The meat was tender making it an enjoyable dish. We also tried their Roast Beef which was drenched in creamy white sauce.

By far the best tasting restaurant we ever tried in Sagada (not to sound biased because the cook is Cebuano) hahaha.

I ordered bacon & beans for breakfast for P150. It was good and I liked that it had a side of salad. We went here on a Tuesday, some of the items on the menu were not available. We were also the only customers that's why it was hard not to notice that the whole place wasn't kept well at all. There were so many used plates and glasses & the crew is not bothering to clean the tables. We knew that flies are common in the area but I think they should double their effort in keeping the place clean. I would still come back to try their other dishes if they improve their service.
