Drinking sessions are not complete without pulutan and one of our favorites is Sisig!
Drinking liquor has been deeply ingrained in our culture as Filipinos. In almost any occasion, we yearn for that taste that burning alcohol – be it on birthdays, anniversaries, or fiestas.
We drink alcohol when we get our hearts broken, when there is a barkada get-together, or if we’re just having a bad day at work or at school.
But what’s a good inuman session without our favorite sizzling pulutan? Our favorite sizzling pig ears and neck is never absent on classic drinking sessions.
Filipinos have developed different variants of this dish like chicken sisig and bangus sisig.
So we rounded up some of the best sisig joints in town where you can get the most delicious pulutan on your next drinking session.
