Sisig, the ultimate pulutan companion for beer. Around bars and restaurants, the many varieties of sisig dish is a best seller either to go along your favorite drink or to be chowed down with hot steamed rice. Originally, sisig was made from chopped parts of a pig?s head ? ears, snout, the brain, etc. Over the years it was reinvented into simple minced meat served on a sizzling platter with chili, liver, onion and seasoned with calamansi and vinegar. Different orders of sisig come in pork, chicken, tuna, chorizo, bangus, and tofu. Adding raw egg on the dish while it?s sizzling hot heightens the flavor as well.
