The subject of many an Instagram post, people often wax poetic about Two Seasons’ four cheese pizza and their oyster sisig, disregarding their hard work to get their #beachbodies for #Boracay once they’re on the table. Why? Because these are gastronomic staples on the island, fare so straightforwardly delicious, that you feel zero guilt as you’re elbows deep in a sizzling plate of fat that’s all your own. Two Seasons’ version of oyster sisig is a perfect one, with little briny jewels retaining a sliver of crisp, starchy coating, and an egg yolk instead of too much mayo giving it creaminess. It’s a heady combination, especially when your toes are buried in salt water and sand; its marriage of both lightness and indulgence encapsulates everything one could ever love about the beach.
If you’re desperate to relive memories of summer, recreate them at home instead. We’ve hacked this one to almost near perfection, capturing the hints of spice, saltiness, and sourness from its origins. Take a crack at it when oysters are available at your wet market or neighborhood supermarket; this dish is easily rewarding.
