Accordingly, the earliest known record of the word sisig can be traced back to 1732, and was recorded by Augustinian friar Diego Bergaño in his Vocabulary of the Kapampangan Language in Spanish and Dictionary of the Spanish Language in Kapampangan.
Bergaño defines sisig as a “salad, including green papaya, or green guava eaten with a dressing of salt, pepper, garlic and vinegar.” There is no mention of how long this cooking style has existed prior to the coming of the Spaniards during the Age of Conquest.
The term mannisig as in mannisig manga, a phrase still used today refers to eating green mangoes dipped in vinegar. Back then, it was a snack eaten by pregnant women as they enjoyed the sourness due to their paglilihi or pregnancy cravings. Sisig evolved from fruits like papaya, guava or green mangoes to pork (pigs’ ears).
The introduction of meat into the dish, however, cannot be dated back to an exact date. (Source: wikipedia)
