I'm Ula. From Manila. 30-something mommy of Jodie. I like to take pictures and I like to eat, I like to take pictures of what I eat... (pictures are mine, unless otherwise specified)
Sizzling Pork Sisig.
Sisig is a Filipino dish from the province of Pampanga. It is made of the head/face of the pig.. (I am told the cheeks of the pig? and even the ears). To someone who has not tasted this, you might find this gross, strange or weird. I was that way too during my younger years when I refused to try it. But it’s actually very delicious.
My first encounter with sisig was during a night out. We ate it with beer. It goes really well with beer ;D But it also served as a viand and eaten with rice.
There are many variations of sisig. From the soft chewy kinds (such as the one in the picture) and the crispy ones (somewhat like chopped up pork cracklings). Some are served with liver and some are not (Personally, I don’t like the one with liver). Some with an egg on top (again, like the picture) and others with mayonnaise. There are also the Tuna and Bangus (milkfish) and Tofu versions.
But for me, sisig is NOT sisig if it’s not pork! haha
