“the greatest pork hash — arguably greatest pork dish — on earth. Say the name with two flicks of the tongue, somewhere between a whisper and a hiss,”
– Ligaya Mishan, New York Times Columnist
That is how NY columnist, Ligaya Mishan described the all time pulutan and delicious main dish which originated from Pampanga. We all know it, it’s SISIG!.
Sisig was invented by the famous Kapampangan Sisig Queen, Aling Lucing. She originally served the dish using pig’s cheeks and ears, chicken liver with vinegar and calamansi in sizzling hot plates. Since then, the popular sisig got different variations from the meat parts and other ingredients.
Lots of restaurant serve it, even fine dinings do, but have you recently visited the new sisig heaven in town? If not, grab your wallets and go to SISIG SOCIETY now!

Pick your Sisig must try!
I asked the store manager on duty what’s the must try and she suggested Pork Bacon and Cheese so that’s what I ordered. It is something new, crispy bacons with the pork went well with taste. Cheese and creamy sauce is promising. However to be honest umay is your enemy here. You’ll get satiated because of how creamy the taste of the sisig. (I suggesr you order soda or juice as umay fighter.) But as I have said, this is something new so don’t worry, it is good!
