Pig Face for Dinner

Pig face is quite a popular part of the animal to eat – mostly fatty, but flavorful. Filipino sisig is chopped up pigs face on a sizzling platter, but in Thailand they mostly like to eat pigs face either grilled or boiled and served with chili sauce.

    Pig’s face (and head) seems to be a common delicacy in SE Asia. Back home in the Philippines, pig’s face is often use in making “sisig” a local appetizer. I also notice here in Cambodia that they grill the entire pig’s head.

      Yes, Filipino sisig is, what I think, the best way to use a pig’s face!

    There is absolutely no way I could stomach that. I’m pretty sure it would come right back up. How do you turn your mind off while eating it?!

    Oh my gosh you are braver than me for trying this! I don’t think I would be able to stop thinking about what I was eating, yikes!

      Hey Emma, it’s scarier when it’s whole, when it’s chopped up, you don’t notice the whole face!

    Reminds me of sheep’s head, a common dish in western Norway 🙂
