Quick fix to an evening longanisa crave in Bangued

Yum yum! Delicious longanisa of Bangued, Abra

I love the garlicky longanisa (native sausages) of north Luzon and whenever I get to the Ilocos region, be it in Laoag or Vigan, I make it a point to have some, grilled. But when I did arrive in Bangued in Abra on an evening, tired and hungry, I saw from the bus that there was a line of barbecue stalls lining the open air plaza. And when I did saw that they have longanisa, I got more excited.

So much excited that when I checked in at the hotel, I left my bag, told the driver of Vice Governor Chari Bersamin, who by the way, fetched me from the Partas terminal, to head to the plaza since I was badly craving for the native sausage.

Although I haven’t tasted the one in Abra, I was sure enough that this is another garlicky longanisa! It cost me P50 for a stick! It was hot but delicious, the same garlicky goodness that I always want. These stalls have chairs and tables if you want to eat here but there’s no available rice. They’re open till 12 midnight.

  1. Wow the popped longganisa just made my mouth water. So is that festival temporary? Nothing beats real authentic longganisa.

  2. The nightly barbecue stalls are permanent, I think.
