Planning a sisig crawl around Woodside would require you to make a visit to Ihawan. If we could, we’d replace the fruit bowl on our kitchen counter with an order of Ihawan’s sisig and reach for spicy spoonfuls of pork parts and jalapeno whenever we need a quick snack. It’s the best sisig we’ve had in the city, which isn’t much of a surprise since this place is best known for its excellent BBQ. There are two sisig options on the menu at Ihawan, both involving pork. But our favorite, the sizzling sisig, is crispy, fatty, and tastes like it’s been cooked with lots of tart calamansi. The result is a spicy meat dish that’s bold enough to encourage your eyebrows to overtake your forehead.
