What’s a SILOG?
Silog (pronounced as /’see-lawg’/) is a suffix refering to two main components of this ultimate Filipino comfort food that has grown to be more than just “Pinoy” breakfast.
SI is the shortened form of ‘sinangag’ (garlic fried rice), and LOG is for ‘itlog’ (fried egg).
Filipinos love to combine words and names, thus the dishes are named accordingly: TAPSILOG (‘tapa’, fried marinated beef slices); TOSILOG (‘tocino’, fried or grilled sweetened cured pork); LONGSILOG (‘longanisa’, fried pork or chicken sausage), etc. There are over twenty combinations of this famous meal, and here at GoSilog we serve all the favorites!
