Restaurants in Manila with Unique Sisig Dishes

12 Restaurants in Manila with Unique Sisig Dishes

The legend of the sisig was said to have begun in the 70's: it was when Angeles City was labeled Sisig Capital of the Philippines, thanks to a famous restaurant called Aling Lucing's. A dish made from parts of a pig's head--its ears and cheeks finely chopped--was served marinated and seasoned, and on a sizzling plate. We all have our own preference as to how we savor this bar chow -- be it served 'wet' and saucy or crispy and dry -- and mix everything in with calamansi, soy sauce, and hot sauce (ratio to taste, as always).

Thanks to creative chefs and cooks, the ubiquitous sizzling Pinoy bar chow takes a playful spin in restaurants wanting to offer something a little bit different to their hungry customers. Many places have been creating sisig fusions, mashups, and using other meaty substitutes (or even going meatless) for the traditional pork.
