Sisig, now being sold on wheels in New York
Restaurateur Manny Imperial, owner of Phil-Am Kusina, now operates a food truck called Sisig City, offering Pinoy signature dishes, said GMA News.
The first food van offering Filipino delicacies started operating last January 2016 in Woodside, Queens, after Imperial finally secured permits to operate around boroughs of New York.
Imperial’s family was behind renowned Phil-Am Grocery, the first Filipino food business in the region. It was also at Phil-Am Grocery Queens branch where Sisig City food truck first offered Pinoy dishes, the report said.
With a tagline “Big Filipino Flavor”, Sisig City food truck aims to attract foreign individuals who are curious about the dish, and of course, Filipinos in the East Coast who are longing for a taste of dishes from the Philippines.
Sisig City roams around the streets of New York, and parks mostly at schools where Fil-Am nurses and students line up to get a taste of sisig, lechon kawali and Inihaw na Liempo. They also offer local desserts including Buko Pandan and Fried Turon.
Sisig City Food Truck can be spotted anywhere around New York, and they constantly update their location schedules on their Facebook page.
