Filipino culinary culture is steeped in the tradition of gathering and celebrating over food. In the Philippines, where every celebration becomes a feast, sumptuous dishes are almost always at the center. 

And in the wide selection of Filipino cuisine, there are two dishes that stand out as delicious icons: sisig and crispy pata. 

Beloved for their taste and irresistible flavors, these delicious delights have rightfully earned their place as family and barkada favorites. This is especially true when beer is involved, as these dishes go well with a bottle or two.

Beyond their exquisite taste, they evoke nostalgia and create a feeling of pure happiness. 

One name has seemingly perfected crafting these dishes, helping transport people to cherished moments with loved ones, through the savory aroma and crispy textures of these dishes.

It’s Pelayo’s Sisig and Crispy Pata, whose passion and dedication to preparing these culinary masterpieces are second to none. Using only the finest ingredients, they ensure that each bite bursts with flavor. 

The Sisig, for instance, is made from perfectly grilled pork harmoniously blended with an array of spices and seasonings, resulting in a savory and tangy delight. On the other hand, the Crispy Pata features a succulent pork leg, marinated to perfection and deep-fried to achieve a crispy golden exterior.

Pelayo’s Sisig and Crispy Pata dishes are meticulously prepared every single time. Whether it’s a small gathering or a grand celebration, their food is served with care, complete with an array of dipping sauces and garnished with fresh herbs and vegetables.

Driven by their deep love for Filipino cuisine, the owners of the brand—the Pelayo family—continue to innovate and expand their menu. While Sisig and Crispy Pata remain their flagship offerings, they have also introduced other beloved Filipino favorites such as lumpia shanghai, dilis rice, pancit, and lechon hamonado.

As Pelayo’s Sisig and Crispy Pata continue to captivate the hearts and taste buds of Filipino families, the brand’s vision remains steadfast—to be the go-to choice for every feast. With their unwavering dedication to excellence and their passion for serving the best Filipino cuisine, Pelayo’s Sisig and Crispy Pata are poised to become household names, cherished by generations to come.
