Longganisa Vigan (Derecado/Baguio Market)

Vigan produces both the derecado and hamonado longganisa. The derecado or garlicky longganisa come in different varieties. For those who want the original sour taste, this is the one with vinegar or sukang Iloko like the one above.

Another version does not contain vinegar. Both versions are available at the Baguio City Market.

Longganisa Laoag (Baguio Market)

This Laoag longganisa is from the Baguio City Market. The version in Baguio also comes from a Laoag supplier. These longganisas are finely-ground, on the salty side and fall in the derecado garlicky (or mabawang) category. Unlike the Vigan longganisa, Laoag has minimal vinegar or contains none at all.

Longganisa Baguio (Hamonado)

There are several varieties of hamonado or sweet longganisa in Baguio City. There are the lean varieties which are for direct frying such as the one pictured above.

Another lean hamonado is what market vendors refer to as the Baguio Country Club longaniza since it is similar or comes from the same supplier as the one served there.

Then there are hamonado varieties laden with fat which need to be boiled first before frying such as the one pictured above.

Finally, the shortganiza version of the hamonado is also heavy of fat and needs to be boiled first before frying. All these hamonados are available at the Baguio City Market.
