Will someone please explain to me scientifically or with a good sense of humor, the real cause of those wickedly pungent longganisa burps? You know, the thing that happens after you consume anything from McDonaldâ€™s longganisa to these superb Vigan longganisa pictured above from the Blue Kitchenâ€¦ For some reason, the combination of pork, spices, vinegar, tons of garlic and intestinal casings reacts with stomach acids to produce the most outrageously smelly longa-burps as I like to call them. Eau de Longa is a unique result of these delicious little buggersâ€¦and it is most obvious when you are on an out of town trip and stop at McDo and someone orders longganisa and rice. If one person orders it, everyone in the car might as well follow suit. Because as soon as you resume your trip, these really noticeable bursts of Eau de Longa are simply par for the course! In the three cubic meters of airconditioned space inside a car you just canâ€™t escape the gasses!
At any rate, I think one of my regular readers was or still is connected to the Blue Kitchen which has several branches around the metropolisâ€¦ I had been planning to review several kinds of longganisa and purchased a few from the Blue Kitchen but I just couldnâ€™t get over the burps so I decided to just have the Vigan longganisa first â€“ it is really good. Not too oily, not too strong on any flavors except the inevitable garlic that makes it taste so good and no humongous blobs of unmeltable fat within. This has to rank amongst my favorite longganisas and it pairs beautifully with a good native vinegar! The Blue Kitchen has dozens of great food items on offer and if I am right about one of my readers, please contact me by email as I would like to do a more comprehensive post on your stores!
