Sizzling Bangus Sisig

The clean waters of the San Juanico Strait produces some of the best-tasting milkfish (bangus) in the Philippines and it is the source of the bangus used by calle Z café in its dishes. The classic Kapampangan dish sisig has been given a healthy twist by substituting pork with bangus. The result the creamy-spicy Sizzling Bangus Sisig.

calle Z cafe Crispy Tenga

Pig's ears are often cooked as kilawin (boiled and seasoned with vinegar and spices) or as one of the ingredients in preparing the classic pork sisig. At calle Z café, they are served fried and cut into strips. Crispy Tenga is calle Z café's best-selling beer match. The skin is crispy while the center cartilage is crunchy. Don't forget to ask for soy sauce kalamansi dip!
