Filipino breakfast wouldn’t be special without Longganisa. Derived from Spanish sausages or chorizo, it’s the Philippine version of sausages that just satisfies the appetite in the morning. Especially when dipped in vinegar, the pinoy way!
Somewhere in Diliman Quezon City is a small pub-like restaurant that specializes in Longganisa. I was taken here by a friend when I was asked what did I wanted for lunch. Since I haven’t had any breakfast for that day yet, I wanted something that’s familiarly Filipino and heavy enough to be classified as brunch. So I was taken to Tito Boy’s Longga-Q.
Inside is a mini bar where you can have a meal or a drink. The staffs are quite friendly and very engaging in conversations.
I think it was meant to be some sort of a sports bar where basketball fans would meet up when a game is on. It’s quite obvious the owner is a huge NBA fan with the decorations around.
Serving might take as long as 15 minutes since the food is cooked upon ordering. It might take even longer if your order is on queue. But the wait is definitely worth it.
The restaurant/bar is open-air but since it’s inside a residential area, there’s no pollution or noise coming from vehicles. Being open-air is perhaps their way of bringing down the costs on their menu item.
Yes, their food is very affordable and you’ll know you’re getting more than what you paid for. So maybe give a little tip too?
Finally I got my order. It can be instagramable in the right angles and lightings too I guess. But I’m not here for that. I’m just here to chow this down. I got the “Longga 4” from the menu which comes with rice and four sticks of longganisa. I added an egg and they also include a relish of diced tomatoes and onions on the side.
They serve the most popular varieties of longganisa in the country. Longganisas from Lucban, Vigan, Alaminos, and Cebu. You can have varieties of sticks from the house special like I did. I got all four of them for my Longga 4 option.
Trust me, they’re not your typical carinderia longganisas. They’re one of the tastiest that I’ve ever had and this is the best place to have your breakfast or brunch. Heck, you’ll even want this for dinner!
Their specialties are mostly ordered by the stick and as you can see from this menu, they’re absolutely affordable.
I recommend that you try the Cassava cake for dessert!
They do sell alcoholic beverages too. We just don’t see it on the menu.
