Filipino cuisine is a diverse and vibrant amalgamation of different cultures. The fusion of native ingredients coupled with foreign influences has made Filipino cuisine truly unique. One such dish that has taken the Filipino gastronomic world by storm is the Dila Longganisa. The tempting aroma and irresistible flavor of this dish has made it a sought after delicacy among food enthusiasts.
It is a type of sausage that originated in the province of Cavite in the Philippines. Its name comes from the Tagalog word “dila” which means tongue, referring to its elongated shape that resembles a tongue. It is made from ground pork, garlic, and other traditional Philippine spices. The meat is then stuffed into a natural casing made from pig’s intestines or artificial casing before being smoked and dried.
What sets this kind of Longganisa apart from other sausages is its distinct flavor and aroma. The combination of spices and herbs results in a savory and slightly sweet flavor. The garlic gives it a hint of pungency that balances perfectly with the sweetness of the meat. The smoking process gives it a slightly charred and smoky flavor that adds depth to the taste. The result is an explosion of flavors in every bite that leaves you craving for more.
It is versatile and can be cooked in various ways. It can be grilled, fried, or baked. The traditional way of cooking it is to pan-fry it in a small amount of oil until it becomes golden brown and crispy on the outside. It is usually served with steamed rice and a side of sliced tomatoes or cucumber. It can also be used as a filling for sandwiches, pizzas, or pasta dishes.
It is available in most wet markets and supermarkets in the Philippines. It is also sold online by different food entrepreneurs and sellers. Some stores offer different variations of it, including spicy, sweet, and garlic-flavored. It is also available here at Jocyl’s as the sweet version known as Sliced Longganisa.
