Aling Lucing created the iconic sisig in the 1970s when she invented the recipe using various leftover pig parts. Since then, she has been titled the sisig queen. We asked the same question; what exactly is sisig? It’s a dish of fatty pork bits served on a sizzling hot plate, but the word itself originally meant the Kapampangan way of cooking meat with acidic seasoning.
Susie’s Cuisine opened in 1972, and it specializes in Pampango kakanin. Some of its signature delicacies include the maja blanca (delicious coconut cream pudding) and the Filipino crème caramel, leche flan (caramel custard pudding).
