Me and my husband loves sisig or sizzling sisig, it's a Filipino dish made from pork's head and liver usually seasoned with calamansi/lemon and chili peppers topped with egg which get cooked slowly from the heat of the meat. Pork sisig is not serve in any restaurants in Dubai except those inside the hotel or clubs. I do not know how to make my own sisig that's why we always buy a pack or two of Monterey's sisig whenever we go shopping for pork meat at authorized supermarkets. This one is a bit pricey compared to the ready to eat sisig in can but much more delicious when reheated and prepared. The best sisig we have tasted was Aling Lucing sisig in Pampanga.

  1. di pa umaabot diyan yung in can? that's a lot cheaper than the one by Monterey but i would guess the price would be proportional to how good the dish is.

    our home made sisig is different. it's not sizzling. more of boiled and diced pigs head with vinegar, onions, and pepper. sa Angeles ko lang una natikman yung sizzling sisig but i prefer the latter. :D

  2. bursky-umabot na kaso di ko nagustuhan, mas masarap yung monterey. oo dun din yun sa angeles yung aling lucings
