SF Food Truck Series Part I: Señor Sisig
For the month of March the Coffee Meets Bagel team in San Francisco will visit a food truck for each week to get you Bagels excited for some unique date ideas. For all you young professionals on-the-go, food trucks are a fun and easy way to indulge in a nice lunch. On top of that, it is also a unique way to spend your first date with your Bagel of the day! So, here’s our first stop:
Name: Señor Sisig
Background: Friends since high school, Evan Kidero and Gil Payumo started Señor Sisig, a Filipino-Mexican fusion food launched in 2010. These lovely fellas combined their entrepreneurial skills and passion for food to create a successful company spreading both the flavors of the Philippines and Mexico into the main stream culinary world.
What does “Sisig” mean, you ask?
Sisig is a filipino term for “snacking on something sour.” This is a reference to the unique taste palette of traditional filipino food that heavily relies on salt and vinegar for their staple dishes. Make sure to say hello to Evan and Gil for us when you stop by!
Food: Sisig Nachos
Description: This consisted of our choice of meat (pork), topped with nacho cheese, sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo and jalapenos. This dish was a perfect mix of salty and spicy due to that perfectly marinated pork and all that cheese. Make sure you take plenty of napkins, this is a messy one!
Food: California Sisig Burrito
Description: This is the most popular item on the menu, including shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole, salsa and french fries. Our favorite part of the burrito were definitely the french fries; it added a nice crispy texture to the burrito. Again, it had a great salty/spicy combination that was balanced out with the guacamole. This would be a much better order for a date, as it is much easier to snack on than the nachos.
Look at us enjoying ourselves in the office! Thanks Señor Sisig for feeding us on this fine day!
