Off The Menu: Señor Sisig Lands A Home In The Mission
The "Bay Area's acclaimed Filipino fusion cuisine" has now landed itself in the Mission offering burritos, tacos and rice plates.
Launched in 2010, the truck has seen the likes of tech workers, Off The Grid's, and events alike—longtime friends Evan Kidera and Gil Payumo have perfected the menu of Filipino eats to a science. With their special twist on a Filipino happy hour dish sisig, Señor Sisig took the portability of their favorite Mexican taqueria dishes and melded the two together to reflect their diverse palette and down-home appeal.
We've first tried the sisig fusion concoctions and we can honestly say: we're sold.
Though they both met in high school in Daly City, California, and followed their own respective paths, Evan receiving his MBA at San Francisco State and Gil graduating from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy, entrepreneurship and food runs deep in both of their family’s bloodline and it was only a matter of time that their shared love of Filipino food would turn into a fusion rolling restaurant, with Chef Gil at the grill and Evan at the wheel.
// It now has a permanent foothold every Saturday and Sunday at 701 Valencia St., offering burritos, tacos and rice plates. But the Señor Sisig's food truck can be found all over the city at different events; see its daily schedule here.
