Today’s featured budget meal is Buddy’s Regular Lucban Longganisa with a cup of rice. All for P 145.00. Longganisa is Filipino Pork Sausage made from ground pork (sometimes chicken or beef). It is a derivative of the Spanish chorizo. In the Philippines, there are regional variations, each using a unique blend of spices and seasonings.
I am not really fond of eating longganisa because of the big pieces of ground fat found in a regular longganisa. However, Buddy’s Lucban Longganisa has that good mix of meat and fat seasoned with just the right amount of spices. Each order comes in twelve pieces and one has to bring a buddy to finish it. I guess that’s why the restaurant is called Buddy’s. Their servings are too big for one and are meant to be shared.
Eating at Buddy’s has always been a treat and a trip down memory lane. I guess I have this thing for associating restaurants to good memories and people that I miss. Hahaha. My former housemates and I would regularly head over to Buddy’s Kalayaan to feast on their famous Pancit Lucban back in the day when we were all starting out in life… too fresh out of college to eat home-cooked meals or too lazy to prepare one.
I am going back to Buddy’s soon to try their other offerings! Do you want to join me? Let me know!
Signing out for now. Peace!
