Silog is a traditional Filipino breakfast. Silog means the meal has sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (eggs), hence sinangag + itlog = silog.
A silog meal has always been my favorite type of breakfast and thus I was thrilled to find a restaurant in Harbor City, California specializing in this Filipino breakfast delight. How appropriate that the restaurant’s name is Silog.
This Harbor City restaurant specializes in different types of silog. They have tapa (ribeye), longanisa (Filipino sausage), tocino (cured pork), sisig (braised pork belly), adobo chicken, adobo pork ribs, pares (beef brisket), spam and salmon.
The main entrees here come with a small side salad.
The salad actually is a wonderful starter. It’s very refreshing and light spinach salad that is topped off with tomatoes, mango and vinaigrette dressing. I love the addition of mango. It brings a nice, sweet kick to this salad.
In addition to the salad, each entree comes with garlic rice and soft boiled egg.
The soft boiled egg here is perfection. Silog does soft boiled egg right! The white is firm and the inside has the runny yellow yolk that you will sure to love over the garlic rice.
Yes, garlic rice plus egg plus your choice of meat is sure to give make you smile here at Silog!
My favorite silog is their Tapa.
Here at Silog, their Tapa comes in the form of thin cut ribeye steak that is marinated in garlic and lime. It’s very flavorful. This dish will tantalize your taste buds for sure.
Another excellent silog dish is their Adobo Ribs.
It’s pork ribs braised in garlic, soy, vinegar and spices. I like this silog dish because it’s something different. It’s not your traditional Silog meat and so I find a Filipino fusion dish. It’s unique and tasty.
Aside from silog dishes, they also some amazing appetizer dishes like lumpia, spicy garlic adobo chicken wings and sisig.
The sisig here is a little bit different from your typical sisig.
The sisig here is braised pork belly and shoulder shredded in fine pieces and topped with chicharon and garlic creme aioli drizzle. Once again not necessarily the traditional Filipino dish but yet very delicious.
Silog is a great Filipino restaurant to find not only silog dishes but other Filipino dishes with a twist. 😉
