Danggit (dried rabbit fish), sinangag (garlic fried rice), and itlog (fried egg) make up a meal that is popularly known as Dangsilog.

Here are examples of some famous meal combinations: Tapsilog (Tapa, Sinangangag, at Itlog), Tocilog (Tocino, Sinangag, at Itlog), Longsilog (Longanisa, Sinangag, at Itlog), Chicksilog (Chicken, Sinangag, at Itlog), and Pakaplog (Pandesal, Kape, at Itlog).

Tuyo refers to salted dried fish (usually herring); this is also known as stockfish in some countries. In the Philippines, tuyo is considered as a poor mans food because of its cheap price – however, this connotation has been expunged over the years since people of different social status learned to love and enjoy it. This can be justified by the different recipes involving tuyo; these ranges from fried tuyo to gourmet pasta with tuyo.
