Whether you’re just discovering the wonders of Filipino cuisine or you go full balut on a regular basis, sisig is a dish to know and love. It’s a beloved bar snack eaten at any time of day, a hearty, salty, spicy stir-fry of pork — skin, liver, head/face and any other leftovers — topped with a raw or fried egg and eaten with rice and a squeeze of calamansi lime juice. So naturally, KFC Philippines is switching the pork bits to chicken bits, taking it off the rice, stuffing it into a sisig burrito and rolling a celebrity up in the works to seal the deal.
Filipino actor Pen Medina takes a spin to the fried chicken red carpet in honor of this new creation. Believe it or not, he’s actually the second Filipino Colonel Sanders (the first was this equally famous actor). Check out the commercial below, and don’t be surprised if you find yourself craving a spicy-tangy burrito next time you head out for a bucket of chicken.
