I’d been to Siga-Siga’s Filipino Food (Broadway and Fraser Street in Vancouver) twice before this visit, and I think the thing that attracts me back is the kind service from the staff there.
During my second visit, I overheard a customer talking to the guy whom I assumed was the owner. In the conversation, the owner was suggesting that he was going to retire in a couple of years and then hand the reins to his young apprentices. So, he’s been trying to train them well to take over, based on what I understood.
Anyway, the owner wasn’t there during this third visit. The younger gentleman who recommended me the BBQ Chicken Leg with rice during my first visit was there. This time, he recommended something called Mogu Mogu as a beverage, and it came with either mango or lychee flavor. I took the Lychee.
For food, he recommended the Pork Belly with rice, and added that it came with some special house sauce. For rice, there was steamed rice or ginger rice – I took the regular steamed rice.
It looked like he was the only one on duty this evening – Siga-Siga’s is a small restaurant – and he told me it would take 10 minutes. Man, the flavor was great! He was right.
For dessert, he recommended a Fried Banana dish served with ice cream. I accepted, and while I’m not a fan of bananas normally, I thought the dessert was great.
Overall, a great meal at a cozy little restaurant.
