Pinoy’s Favorite Breakfast: Famous Silog
Tapsilog is the most ordered among silog items. Tap is the abbreviation of the word tapa, a beef or pork that is marinated with salt and other spices before dried out in the sun. The meal is best served with native vinegar. Here’s our homemade beef tapa recipe and/or pork tapsilog recipe if you’re interested.
Longsilog is another breakfast combo that is favored by the Pinoys. Long refers to longganisa, a type of sausage made from ground pork and other spices added with curing salt as preservative and sodium phosphate as the emulsifier.
The “to” in the word tosilog stands for tocino, which means “cured meat” in Spanish. Its cuts are from pork belly, mixed with special ingredients for 2 to 3 hours before marinating overnight to achieve that soft, sweet delicious taste perfect with fried rice and fried eggs.
Bangsilog is another meal combination favored by most Filipinos that use fried bangus (milk fish) as the main dish. If you want to cook one in your home, try our daing silog recipe.
No, cornsilog has no corn in it. Corn in cornsilog actually refers to corned beef, which is the main dish of the meal. The canned good is sauteed with garlic and onion before serving.
Hotsilog is the meal combination of hot dog, garlic friend rice, and friend egg.
The pork in porksilog can be cooked in several ways. It could be fried or grilled. Whichever way of cooking is used, it always takes a spot on the list of the most famous silog. It is best served with atsara.
