Me Love You Longga: 11 Restaurants to Get Your Longganisa Fix
Longganisa (sometimes spelled with only one 'g'), our local take on sausage/chorizo, is rooted in Spanish cuisine. The Spanish 'Longaniza,' just like the Filipino counterpart, has many renditions in Spain's different regions. The Longganisa's flavor scale plays around on being garlicky, spicy, peppery, and sweet; presentation-wise, the sausage links can vary from being elongated like a hotdog, to round like tiny meatballs. Modern takes on this Filipino breakfast staple go beyond the silog--there are sandwiches (like the popular 'Longaburger' in Boracay), pizzas, pastas, and even ice cream (!).
