Longsilog- Filipino Breakfast

Longsilog- Filipino Breakfast

Longsilog a very popular Filipino breakfast.

The name is derived from the food main components;  Longanisa(Filipino Sausage),Sinangag (Fried Rice), and Itlog(Egg).

[Cagayan de Oro City] While I was still in College, we used to frequent a place that serves all -silog meals you can think of 24 hours a day. It was beside a Disco Pub which was generally popular on those days. If my memory serves me right, the name of the “silog” place is Twinkies. The establishment is long gone but memories of pigging out with longsilog after a night out still remains. How about you? Do you know food establishments in Cagayan de Oro that has virtually been a part of your life?

Turon (Banana Lumpia)

Turon (Banana Lumpia)

Turon is a Philippine snack made of thinly sliced bananas (preferably Saba or Cardaba bananas) and a slice of jackfruit, dusted with brown sugar, rolled in spring roll wrapper and fried. Saba bananas are the best to use as a result of their sweetness. Jack fruit strips over the plantain bananas adds more sweetness and flavour.

The lechon has undoubtedly become a symbol of Filipino feasts. In some regions, a Filipino wedding is considered grand based on the number of lechons served and the first birthday celebration of a son/daughter can never be complete without one… crispy, sumptuous, juicy tender native lechon.
