What is the difference between tapsilog, tosilog, longsilog and bangsilog? I can't figure it out. Is it the meat that is different?

    -silog is the nickname for the combination of garlic fried rice (sinangag) and fried eggs (itlog). The different kinds of -silog vary in the type of meat that accompanies your meal.
    tapsilog = tapa (cured beef)
    tosilog = tocino (bacon or cured pork belly)
    longsilog = longaniza (sausage)
    bangsilog = bangus (marinated fried fish)

      Thank you for your information. The explanations I found online were not clear.

        If you need to do further searching along these lines, use "Filipino".
