Sisig -- I love you

SDgirl | Jul 21, 2009 04:03 PM

On a tip from my dad's Pilipina heath care provider, I went to my neighborhood pancit place (Bethchay's in Penasquitos) today and tried the sisig. YUMMY! The dish is made with chopped lechon (chunks of pork belly, deep fried until crunchy, which in itself is fabulous), diced onion, chile, bell pepper (red and green), and crushed garlic, all dressed with an acid (either vinegar or lemon juice). It's kind of a lechon ceviche and it's soooo good! Everyone, go to your nearest Philipino restaurant and order you some sisig -- you'll be glad you did (no rhyme intended). Cheers!
