Big Ben Kitchen‘s specialty is the home -made longganisa. The flavors are well balanced and not too heavy on the garlic.  They use lean pork meat as the main ingredient. These tasty sausages are all-natural and contain no preservatives, nitrates or salitre.

The longganisa (a type of Philippine sausage ) recipe was made by the grandmother of Chef Gene way back in 1950 and had been a treasured family heirloom recipe. There were some minor improvements like more leaner meat, less preservatives and vacuum sealed packaging.  Big Ben’s famous longganisa is one of the products listed at “One Town One Product’ OTOP project of Department of Trade and Industry ( DTI).
