If it's your first time to go to Aysee, you'd probably think it's just a little cheap eatery struggling to earn and get their business up and moving. I, myself, didn't think it has been there since I was little. Who would've thought it's been about 30 years? It pretty much amazes me how it had stood long enough and still not change a bit. Not that I've been there years ago, just that based on that story, I would expect Aysee to renovate a bit and get a little more pricey.
But then again, once in a while, it's lovely to take a seat in a non-aircon area with old tables around, un-tiled floors, unpainted walls...and still have a wonderful time. The food itself is the secret. And you need not pay much for it!
During the first time I visited, I was able to take a dip in their popular specialty -- Sizzling Sisig. Later, I got to experience more of Aysee, and not a single dish I've had here broke my heart. ♥
Two of their specialties are:
Sizzling Sisig - I don't like my Sisig with egg, as I feel that the egg usually sacrifices its taste. Aysee's Sisig without egg changed my impression of it when I first tasted it with egg. Sometimes, you just have to deviate from the norms and decide that "special" for them, isn't for you. The second time I ate Aysee's Sisig was so good --- it deserved a third, fourth, and many orders to come.
This crunchy combination of pork, a little chicharon, onions, is honestly good in itself. But it is even better with soy sauce, calamansi, and hot sauce --- mix it all up to meet your preference. This whole plate is only a little over P100! 
 
 Papaitan - Every person who loves Papaitan should be prepared with a toothbrush. All because when the Papaitan gets a little cooler than it should be, it gets too greasy.
Good thing, the Papaitan in Aysee is placed over a little stove (whatever it's called). And although we usually come to Aysee in two (and we finish everything on the table), this bowlful of delight is actually good for four persons!
The clean-looking and clean-tasting ox tripes and innards are big factors of getting me head over heels with it. It also complements very much with the mouth-watering soup that doesn't need any calamansi anymore (it's already sour and yummy enough). This has gotten me so addicted that it is all I think about during dinner. And how much is it? It is only around a hundred bucks or so. I just died!
Other specialties include Tokwa't Baboy (very crispy Tokwa) and Fried Pla-Pla. There are also nights when they do barbecue at the sidewalk, and it's so good being immersed somewhere that's so naturally Manila.
This hole-in-the-wall paradise is located across ULTRA, and is also in Mandaluyong and Tiendesitas.

Just to be clear, this place is filthy. The tables with dirty dishes need busing, and it sits roadside along one of the busiest streets in pasig. Not for the faint of heart or constitution. Not to mention the food looks like vomit. 🤢128561

With that said, this place hands down serves one of the best sisig in the metro. Pig ears, cheeks, snout and liver, served sizzling on a hot plate. (Pictured with 3 eggs mixed in) Absolutely YUM. 🤤

The other entrees are not to be outdone though. Try the dinakdakan (also pictured), which is basically sisig but with bigger cuts of meat and includes the brain if authentic. The papaitan - bitter soup made of cow or goat innards served over an open flame - is also their specialty.

Other interesting food to order would be the dinuguan - stewed pork blood - and the goto (congee) with either tripe or chicken intestines. The sizzling mushrooms swimming in garlic and gravy (I think; pictured) are a great appetizer.

All items are best had with as much rice as you can have and a few cold bottles of Red Horse beer, of course 128518

And oh, the Ultra Philippine Sports Complex is right across the street if you're feeling guilty and want to burn off a few calories before eating here.

A true hole-in-the-wall. Somewhat an institution for cheap eats and great sisig. Haven't been here in a loooong time.

Heading south from a weekend road trip with my girlfriends, we decided to make a detour here for a late night April Fool's dinner. We arrived at 10pm and we were happy a table was free for us to take.

Of course we got an order of sisig. But almost half of the menu was unavailable. At 10 PM, parang mejo bangag si koya din every time we asked about the contents of the menu. We had asked about 5 things which they didn't have, after which he laughed and finally told us one whole column was unavailable. Hay sad. So we got the sizzling shrimp with the sisig, and scrambled eggs too.

We liked the shrimp. The shrimps were juicy, the sauce very pinoy ang timpla. The egg was oilier than necessary, but ok na din.

Sadly, the coveted sisig was so dry. What happened?!128557 you know it's masarap, dry nga lang this time. Definitely not how I remembered it.

I might still come back. Malay mo off day lang talaga. Plus the food is cheap anyway. And it's a nice feeling to be able to pay that little for food.

After a long run at ULTRA, Aysee is the place we usually go to for a meal on a budget. I was never into sisig but their sisig is one of the best ive tasted. Sobrang crispy! I wonder how they do that. Try also their Gambas. And oh, they do buffet Sundays for only 200 pesos!

This is our great find yesterday128536128536128536. The place is a hole in the wall and a great break from the hyped restaurants that everybody is posting and reviewing. The place and the menu is simple and unassuming. I love their crunchy pork sisig and their papaitan 128076128076128076. Will definitely come back again.

While waiting for our corporate funrun this afternoon. Me and my buddy agreed to have a cholesterol loading at Aysee. Its been a long time since I've drop by here. The place look a lot cleaner now compared to before but the place still non-aircon.

We go for my fave sisig and papaitan. Their sisig is on the crunchy side. I like its crunchiness. It was quite addicting and with the knorr soysauce it was nostalgic. Felt like college again. The papaitan was superb. It has a generous amount of laman loob. The soup was a little sour but when mixed with the rice it was perfect! Prepare to go for an extra rice.128516

Aysee is still that old reliable go to place for papaitan and sisig. Perfect for afterwork 2botts session. 128522128077

I don't understand why their sisig is hype but in fact I didn't like their sisig. It was too hard to chew and not crispy. Even their tapsi wasn't good at all. Also, they have small servings.

Had lunch at this hole in the wall eatery near Valle Verde Clubhouse today with officemates
Papaitan was good, and was served hot!
Sisig was just ok though.
The crispy pork was good but not that crunchy.
Total bill for 6 pax was P800 (less SCD, we had 3 senior citizens with us lol).

Happy Halloween!

My office buddies suddenly decided to head to Aysee's for some sisig, and so off we were! We were lucky enough to get parking right in front of the store. I guess you could say this is one of the hole in the wall restaurants that everyone just kind of knows about.

Their specialty here is sisig, so we ordered three (to share among 6) and garlic rice. The good was great, but my only issue was that the sisig was kind of soggy and swimming in oil (ok what sisig really isn't). I guess I was expecting it to have a bit more crunch to it. Oh and they also use lots of onions.

For what you pay though, it's definitely worth it! We each paid only 100 for our lunch, but we were full the rest of the day!
