A rich umami bomb kissed by tart calamansi
Fire up Filipino Sisig with everything from pork belly to tofu in under 30 minutes!
Traditionally prepared sisig is an umami-led pork hash party: a bar snack (or pulutan) and street food in the Philippines, this dish has spicy, savory, and sour flavors due to a bit of chili, the rich pork sear, and tart calamansi.
An Omsom starter is a pantry shortcut, combining all the sauces, aromatics, and seasonings you need to cook a specific Asian dish. Recipes are provided - just add protein + veggies!
Hard-to-get ingredients, but we got them. No substitutes, no swaps, just proud, loud Asian flavors without cultural compromise.
We go the distance so you don't have to - sampling from 15+ suppliers for a single ingredient and importing high-quality ingredients directly from Asia that aren't being brought in by any other food brands.
Cane vinegar, garlic, calamansi puree, porcini mushroom powder, dried chili flakes

Thank you! Very very good! Brings back memories from childhood, my Japanese mother mastered Japanese, Korean and Filipino cuisines like these! Makes me happy!!
A friend got me an omsom starter pack a few months ago and sisig was my favorite. So bright and tangy and rich.
This Sisig starter pack is everything! I’m a busy wife and mama, so whipping this up for dinner with whatever meat I have saves so much time! And it’s so tasty!
We love all the starters. Tonight was Bulgogi boneless chicken thighs with shaved local cabbage and sweet onion. Finish with scallions and a little toasted sesame seeds and sesame oil and we had a winner! Maybe Larb tomorrow…
All the Omsom starters I’ve tried have been good to great, but Sisig is my favorite. I make it with pork belly, and it is amazing! I’ve already reordered.
My hometown had a large Filipino community, and I loved eating Filipino food like sisig at restaurants and friends’ houses. Since moving to a place without a Filipino population, I’ve really missed this food and had trouble recreating it on my own. But the sisig starter is very easy to use and lets me enjoy this dish without having to guess at ingredient substitutes at my local market.
