Sisig always hits the spot.
Sisig is one of the most popular Filipino dishes that originated in Pampanga. It’s made from pig head, liver, and sometimes, chicharon too, seasoned with calamansi, soy sauce, and chili pepper. Some prefer to have theirs with rice, while some like it as pulutan with their bucket of beer.
Fun fact: Lucia Cunanan of Aling Lucing's Sisig in Pampanga decided to concoct a dish involving a pig’s head, because they remain unused by the U.S. Air Force personnel. Since then, she has been dubbed as the ‘Sisig Queen’.
In this list, we’re featuring some of the most unique sisig dishes you can ever think of and a few classic ones to give you variety when the sisig cravings creep in. Enjoy and don’t forget to bookmark this article for future reference!
