THE JUDGE’S CHOICE:
Hot Rod’s Sweet Pork Longanisa Poutine

If the Philippines had discovered poutine, bites of longanisa with fries, gravy and cheese would be the perfect mix.

Garnished with spring onions and roasted sesame seeds. Hot Rod’s Premium Longanisa has been featured by Vice Munchies in Chef Matty Matheson’s “Matty In Manila” back in 2015.
