Log Cabin BuffetJune 3, 2006 Saturday

Log Cabin Buffet

The best food in Sagada can be had in homes - that's a fact. However, if you don't get invited to one, or unlike me, you're not at the right place at the right time, don't despair. Chef Aklay's 26 years of cooking experience across 27 countries can be had for P250, buffet style.

Saturday's the Night
Every Saturday, he cooks buffet dinner at the Log Cabin...just make sure you reserve before 12 noon, Friday. If there are no less than 10 reservations, then buffet night happens. Be ready for a gastronomic experience that can rarely be had in this part of the north (heck, in this part of the world!). Buffet includes sourdough bread, whole wheat bread, several courses, dessert and coffee - all made from scratch.

Freshest Market Produce
Aklay scours Sagada's Saturday market looking for the freshest, most promising ingredients to his buffet. Like a truly seasoned chef, he can make a glorious meal out of what's locally in season. If it's mushroom season (like now), expect wild mushroom soup, pastry stuffed with wild mushroom, etc.

Ending Thoughts
You can't get this kind of cooking for less than P1000/head in Manila, and even if you do, I doubt if it has the pedigree. I can get a meal for P45 here, but paying P250 for Aklay's buffet is a steal. A Sagada visit is not complete without savoring Chef Aklay's offerings.
