Longganisa (or Longaniza in Spanish) is a sausage similar to chorizo which is flavoured with local spices and differs considerably from region to region. In the Philippines they are typically eaten for breakfast with rice or fried eggs. The Vigan Longganisa is a fat, short little sausage which uses local garlic and sugar cane vinegar giving it a distinct flavour. The Longganisa Festival is typically celebrated in Vigan City on 22 January each year, just a few days before the Vigan City Fiesta on 25 January.
