Sunday’s Sizzle with JT’s Sizzling Chicken Sisig

Sundays are extra special in the Catholic Filipino culture. It's not just a regular day off from work or school, but more so a time to give thanks to the Lord for His abundant blessings. A chance to reconnect with our spirituality and a great day to spend quality time with loved ones.

After the St. Joseph mass was finished, we bought sampaguita flowers for our altars in our bedrooms at home, and then headed back to our car. My mom began asking where we should go next to continue our cherished family tradition after church. While she suggested going to SBMA, I eagerly proposed going to JT's Manukan Grille instead. Not only would it allow me to indulge in mouthwatering Filipino dishes, but also a wise choice for us to make the most of our time and create meaningful memories together.

When we arrived the restaurant was nearly fully packed, but we were lucky enough to secure a table. My younger brother opted for Pork Sisig, while my mom chose Batchoy. As a chicken enthusiast, I picked Chicken Sisig with egg. While waiting for our dishes to arrive, my mom and I engaged in chit chat, sharing chika stories that I hadn't heard. I also took a stroll outside the resto as I couldn't resist the opportunity to take photos. I knew these snapshots would make the perfect addition to my next social media post.

After patiently waiting for nearly eight minutes, our long-awaited dishes were finally served. It took several minutes to prepare, but hey, I’m telling you that it’s worth the wait! As the smoky plates were set before us, the air filled with the enticing hissing and crackling sounds of the sizzling meat. Imagine a plate of sizzling chicken sisig in front of me, such a tasty dance of crispy chicken bits on a hot plate. It was a feast for both the ears and the taste buds!

As I mixed the egg topping and squeezed the calamansi onto the sizzling chicken sisig, I was practically relishing every spoonful of the delightful combination of flavors. JT’s chicken sisig is made by cooking small slices of crispy chicken breast seasoned with tasty spices, tangy ingredients, and special condiments. It's a popular choice for those who appreciate bold and zesty flavors in their meals, just as I do.

My adventurous foodie spirits decided to pair my meal with a hot bowl of Batchoy soup and noodles that my mom ordered. I poured the appetizing soup over my garlic rice and added a touch of chicken oil for extra richness. The combination turned out to be a delightful experiment, satisfying my stomach completely. I enjoyed the delicious meal so much that I couldn't help but finish my plate and even indulged in two small bowls of Batchoy soup. My hungry tummy became pleasantly full indeed!

The best part are the crispy edges of the JT’s Manukan Sizzling Chicken Sisig – SOOOOO YUUUMMMMY! This dish is one of my Filipino favorite food picks in their menu, and you can see why. It's like a party of flavors in my mouth!

My mom and I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the franchise owner of JT's Manukan Grille Subic branch. A special shoutout to Mr. Kim Foo! We were pleasantly surprised when he generously treated us with a special dish, completely free of charge, during our visit there. We truly appreciate his kind gesture and the delicious seafood that he provided. Thank you so much Mr. Kim Foo!
