In this episode of “Merienda,” aka snack time, we head over to SISIG in Historic Filipino Town in Los Angeles with Richard, aka Hangry Blogger. Richard made his way through SISIG’s menu, starting with the appetizers, then exploring the main course selections, and then ending things with trying out some Filipino desserts for the first time. Stay tuned to the end for Richard’s recommendations.
Richard aka Hangry Blogger quit his job to become a full-time food blogger. He’s eating his way throughout SoCal.
SISIG restaurant was established by Rex and Antonette Quizon in January 2020 at the historic Filipino town in temple street, it was supposed to open in July 2020 but due to pandemic everything was pushed back from the construction of the building until the final permit from the health department, and was officially open on April 9, 2021.
SISIG is an original dish in Pampanga Philippines where the couple grew. It was made of boiled then grilled Pork Belly and liver chopped finely seasoned with freshly squeezed Lemon juice, chopped onions, salt, and pepper then finished in a very hot sizzling Pan served with white or Java rice and pickled veggies or atchara on the side.
The restaurant is designed to be a Californian – Filipino Barbecue with an open kitchen concept serving fresh ingredients and high-quality meats with a relaxed casual ambiance that everyone will enjoy. Sisig draws inspiration from the couple’s four children who love to eat barbecue chicken, pork, and beef with rice on the side. The meat is marinated for at least 24 hours using fine ingredients and grilled as you order so it is served fresh every day, each recipe on the menu is made by Rex Quizon who has a true passion for cooking for his family and friends. Sisig is open from Monday thru Saturday from 10:30 to 7:00 pm and closes on Sundays and some holidays
