VIGAN, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Late last year, The Adobo Chronicles broke the story about a famous vegan DJ in California who sued a local food market for product mislabeling. She thought the Vigan longganisa (pork sausage) she bought was vegan.
After arriving in Vigan following a 6-hour drive from Baguio City, our Adobo Chronicles crew went right to work to investigate our earlier report about the longganisa.
We can now confirm with 100% certainty that Vigan longganisa indeed is not vegan. The famous Filipino sausage is packed with pork.
Our crew had it for breakfast this morning at the Cabugao Beach Resort, just a few miles north of Vigan City and we absolutely loved it. Of course, none of us was vegan.
So if you are vegan, avoid buying Vigan longganisa from your local supermarket. You have now been forewarned.
