Sisig is a Kapampangan term which means "to snack on something sour". It usually refers to fruits, often unripe or half-ripe, sometimes dipped in salt and vinegar. It also refers to a method of preparing fish and meat, especially pork, which is marinated in a sour liquid such as lemon juice or vinegar, then seasoned with salt, pepper and other spices.
Sisig as is popularly known today is actually sizzling sisig, a Philippine dish made from parts of pig’s head, liver and usually seasoned with kalamansi and chili peppers.
Not advisable for health conscious people.
DEFINITELY THE MOST DELICIOUS SISIG in Manila.
Favorite Dish: sisig, papaitan is also popular here.

This is the outlet inside The Podium mall. It consists of a small barely 3 meter bar/booth with a couple of table/chair set. There is a small board that announces the seasons flavor. I've seen a Halloween scoop that is made with brown chocolate with peanut butter with orange bits. My kid loved it.
My personal fave is the Chocoholics Anonymous. Velvety choco hand-churned ice cream with thick fudge ribbon and more dark chocolate portions. Yum!
I brought my old friend who now lives in Canada to their outlet. She finished a double scoop in a waffle cone of Mango Sans Rival. I can see the mango chunks disappear with each mouthful. Mind you, the scoops are larger than your regular ice cream scoop. Mango Sans Rival = Butter-cream Ice Cream garnished with wafer clusters, cashews, and luscious mango swirls made with real fruits.
My kids are always egging me when we are going back to that outlet. For fear of sugar load I cant bring them every week. Every other week, maybe.....
Each scoop is PHP85 = US$1.80
Favorite Dish: Chocoholics Anonymous....Yum. Dreamy!

As seen on my homepage, this is the one of the most cheapest restaurants I have ever been in Pasig. Never I have seen as cheap as these in Manila or in anywhere in the Philippines. So if you can show me a proof, please send me a pic that will beat this price here and I will surely treat you!
The meal consists of a half fried egg and with a little or over 100 grams of Tapa( dried fried salted beef strips) plus the ginger-based fried rice. Meals like these are within easy reach of the majority of the budget conscious Filipinos! At times like these, surely this will be a hit!
Size of the meals is very good for people on a diet!

If you are looking for one of the few seafood restaurants in the suburbs of Pasig- This is the place- R3K Seafood Restaurant. Unlike other restaurants that show their live fish on their aquariums, R3K seafoods are only displayed on their fresh big freezers. They say that their seafoods are always fresh and new directly straight from South Cotabato( the city of Manny Pacquiao in Southern Philippines) GenSAN is the TUNA Capital of the Philippines.
The only downside of this great restaurant is the location as it is situated beside auto & vulcanizing shops. If only they will relocate to a more cozy place, I am preety sure they will get the right paying customers.
But just the same I am recommending this as one of my best restaurant in Pasig. Taste- wise and budget-wise!
Favorite Dish: Their specialty: Tuna Belly that is laden rich with the healthy polyunsaturated Omega3 fatty oils! It can be served either as Inihaw(grilled), sizzling, sigang(cooked in a tamarind soup) and kinilaw(raw/sashimi). Price is computed by the weight (per 100 grams). So a normal meal for two would cost between 100 to 150 pesos. Just fair enough to enjoy a hearty meal.

Ado's Panciteria is one of the tastiest and special pancits I have discovered in Pasig.
Aside from their unique spices, they have distinctly made their pansits by adding the tasty yet cholesterol-full chicharon bits(deep fried pork skin).
Located in one of the busiest parts of Pasig town proper. Its strategic location has made it one of the most preferred one-stop pansits shops among Pasiguenos and the people from nearby town of Pateros. It has been serving pansits since 1952.
Favorite Dish: Ado's Pansits are prepared on a variety of ways & ingredients:
Ingredient Options: There is the Bihon (thick rice noodle), Canton(thin wheat noodles), Lomi (thick wheat noodles), Miswa(thin strands of rice noodles).
Cooking Options: Guisado(saute), Sariwa(half cooked) & Sabaw(w/ added creamy sauces).
Plus you can order different sizes according to your needs.
Price range is as low as 55 pesos to as high as 450 pesos.

Budbod is Rizal's famous local delicacy of rice toppings flavoured with beaten egg, sliced tomatoes, spring onion, sesame seeds and a choice of viand of either the ff:
fried pork, chicken, daing(salted dried milk fish), tapa, hotdog, longganissa, shanghai rolls etc... Cost is P45 pesos.
This place is a self service restaurant. so expect to get your orders and utensils here.
Ambiance is so Filipino since the dining furnitures here are mostly sculptured chpped dead woods and walls are adorned with native leafs.
One of the downsides of this restaurant is it the Parking space. Narrow, Limited space and very hard esp during peak hour.
Favorite Dish: Other popular food is the GISING-GISING. It is a combination of seafoods, vegetable and tofu boiled in a coconut sauce on a palayok(mud pot). This is also a good place to drink San miguel beers.

From the name itself, "AYSEE" which means "I was first" is a testament on their claim as the 1st restaurant in Pasig or perhaps Manila to serve SISIG - Filipino's favorite pulutan(foods while drinking alcohol) . Though I haven't totally verified their claim but it seems true since they were serving it since 1986. And the fact that Sisigs became popular among drinkers only during the late 90's.
Aysee is a common driver and athlete stopover restaurant, who after a day of sweating out fats is now finally craving for more cholesterol thru a sisig meal.
Favorite Dish: Try their premiere dish: SISIG. Their version of the ever popular SISIG is chopped pork meat and fats combined with onions and other garlic spices served in a sizzling plate. Best served with a raw egg on top added with a hotsauce and soy seasoning. Price is P75.
Papaitan is one of the other popular food here. It is a stew of pork intestines, liver, and heart, ox stripes.
They also have the famous Tapsilogs! Check the pricelist on my pics attached here!

CASHKEY is one of the most famous Chinese pansiteria restaurants in western Pasig City.
In fact, it is included in the city government's annual travel map/magazines.
Situated at the center of Raymundo Ave., where most mini-carinderias and cheap sidewalk restaurants are located. It is one of the few good tasting airconditioned restaurants along the strip. Also, it is highly popular among city government's employees since they held most of their lunch meetings here.
The dining area is so small yet simple. With only five (1.5x1.5m) plastic monoblock table and chairs as its furniture. At peak hours this places packs a bunch of hungry budget concious vistors mostly government employees.
Favorite Dish: It has a wide menu of Filipino-Chinese soup, pansit, vegetable, chicken, beef, and seafood sizzling plates dishes.
But their most famous meals are their different pansits with an option of adding lechon bits on its top. Also the tortas(omelettes are great!)
The cheap P55 rice combo meals here that are interchangeable combined with either a pansit, torta and lumpia (shanghai rolls).
Foods here taste great but one of the most notable uniqueness of this restaurant is that majority that are served here actually taste the same since they have the same sauce in all of their omelletes, pansits, and other dishes. So that is why I am calling it an "One sauce for all foods restaurant!

This is a new thing for me! Getting my cakes instead of coffee at the Starbuck's!
Well, Starbuck's Coffee came out with a pair of cakes I really like. Their Heaven Cake and Pistachio Cake (actually more like mini-cakes) are really good! The different layers and different flavors just explode in your mouth as you bite through the layers of each mouthful!!! :P
But I heard that not all branches carry these pair. Be sure to drop by their branch in Pearl Drive to get a taste of Heaven!
Favorite Dish: 1. Pistachio Cake 2. Heaven Cake
