Giniling na baboy (ground pork) with sliced Filipino hotdogs by John Braza.
What distinguishes Filipino hotdogs?
Most prominently perhaps it’s the bright red color. And yes, it’s artificial color!
Popular brands: San Miguel Purefoods Tender Juicy Hotdogs, RFM Swift Mighty Meaty Hotdogs
There’s always some sort of faceoff between Purefoods Tender Juicy and RFM Swift’s Mighty Meaty — whether with kids’ tastebuds or on the basketball court (the companies each have a professional team).
* Trivia: RFM stands for Republic Flour Mills.
Lest you think we’re giving the impression that red hotdogs are exclusive to the Phlippines, we shall note that the United States has quite a lot more brands of red hotdogs.
Among these American brands throughout the 50 states: Jordans Frankfurters, Carolina Pride Hot Dogs, Glazier’s Frankfurters, Carolina Bright Leaf Brand Red Hots of Smithfield in North Carolina, Maui’s Own Hotdogs, Redondo’s Hawaiian Winners, Fairbury Brand Red Hot Dogs, Kayem Old Tyme Natura Casing Reds, Cloverdale Red Franks, Zeigle’s…
Artifically colored and fully cooked.
