Arabian Sausages

At the Carrefour supermarket we bought Arabian Sausages, they look so much like our local longganisa, which my kids lovingly call "longga-bongga" (we adapted the way my bestfriend and her son call longganisa). They were thinner and longer as compared to our local ones.

I should have trusted my instincts though, as my kids and I did not like the taste one bit. I had to finish mine to prove them part of our deal that we have to eat whatever is served on the table. I don't want my kids to grow up being choosey with their food. Back home, they even eat tuyo and tinapa and they love it :) My tastebuds was able to distinguish its garlicky taste but there was a curious herb or spice that was used as well. And I could not, for the life of me, remember what it was. It tasted like cardamom or something that you smell from a Chinese drugstore. Am not too sure... where I've always boasted my husband to know the spices or herb used on a particular food. This time I would have to concede :)  It might be something that the locals here love to include in their list of grocery items but for sure it won't be part of ours next time.
