The best Ilocos ‘empanada,’ now in the metro | It's More Fun in the Philippines | Scoop.it

A few decades later, almost all Pinoy restaurants and beer houses now serve Aling Lucing’s version of sisig.
Lechon manok, meanwhile, originated in the Visayas, as well as Bacolod chicken, La Paz batchoy, panga ng tuna and a few others.
