Saj Hut

Saj Hut introduces itself as a place which sells Lebanese shawarma. It is good to count the growing numbers of restaurants in Iloilo which serves Middle Eastern flavors. Like other restaurants, this place is serving food with tradition.

The owner did not Google or Youtube it but rather his personal knowledge, skills and tradition. Not just for the sake of offering something new in the hearts of the Ilonggos but as well as sharing a piece of the place where they have been through.

How to Get There

Saj Hut is located at their place in Alta Tierra Village in Jaro. When commuting, the best routes passing by the area are Jaro Liko NFA, Jaro Liko Tagbak Terminal and Leganes.

You can ask the tricycle and trisikad drivers for the exact location.

Through the years, another cuisine that is evidently growing in numbers in the city are the ones offering a Middle Eastern flavor. Ilonggos welcome the flavors of these diversity of dishes even it is a little far from the palate we have

It may look like a typical meal of meat, vegetables and sauces but the food experiences is such pleasing that it already feels like you have travelled the world.
