Most Filipinoes, and in general, south-east Asians like congee, don’t you?

Congee is a comfort food made of thick rice porridge, crumbled and soft after extended boiling.  It is also called Arrozcaldo but here’s a trivia – “Arrozcaldo is actually a Chinese congee that was adapted to the tastes of the Spanish colonial settlers who patronised Chinese restaurants in the Philippines.” [Wikipedia]

This simple restaurant in front of Lemon Pie House serves savory rice congee, a bit distinct from the usual congee I usually know in that, the chunky chicken pieces were breaded and fried which made it more tasty, a boiled egg is added too.   

Garnished with deep-sauteed garlic, chopped spring onion and squeeze the “calamansi” (citrus) onto it, a perfectly yummy way to warm yourself during the cold rainy Sagada days.

Sagada Happy House Restaurant also serve “mami” (noodle soup), barbecues, snacks and meals. 

Located in front of Lemon Pie House, approximately 10-minute walk from the municipal building.

What to order: congee, noodles, snacks, meals.

Insider Tip:   Dine outside in those 2 small huts to have that rustic feel.
