10 Best Tapsilog in Manila
It’s beefy goodness all the way! samples tapsilog for every kind of crowd.
Published on: May 28, 2010 - 5:02pm

6 Lauan St., Barangay Duyan-Duyan, Project 3, Quezon City
Tel. no. 433-4267
Open 24 hours daily


Although the establishment was founded in 1984, very few outsiders, to this day, know who Vivian really is. Management and staff—“who, by the way, wear signature pink shirts and visors —“are tight-lipped about her identity although pictures of a smiling middle-aged female—“presumably Vivian—“are displayed prominently inside the dining area. Fortunately, the big to-do about her identity has not gotten in the way of her famous dish. Although the Beef Tapa (P80) itself is served cold—“having been mixed and cooked beforehand —“ the strips are tasty and the portions generous.

Philocoa, Diliman, Quezon City with various branches
Tel. no. 8-7000 (Hotline)
Open 24 hours daily (select branches)


The fastfood Tapsilog Combo Meal (P76) comes with a regular-sized drink of your choice and is only available during breakfast. (That would be from 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.) The tapa comes in the form of beef bits. More on the salty side, it's served with a cup of fried rice and poached sunny side up egg. It's not "classy" tapa but it sure has its fans.

      Chades' tapsilog is really, really good. But it also needs to improve its ambience to make it more restaurant-like.

    Hello, I would like you guys to try Golispat! it's along Kalayaan, Pasay. By the Original Merville Access Road, terrific Original sweet tapsi and a Kalsilog (Kalabaw Tapa) the rice is perfect and so is the egg for a very reasonable price! :D

    Tapsilog Centrale in Kamuning QC deserves a mention here. They offer angus beef tapa at a very affordable price! It will be also nice if Batangas pork tapa would be in the spotlight. Not known to everyone, Taal's real specialty is their pork tapa (not beef!). Hope there would be more restaurants that can feature this.

    Some of these are good but seriously, it missed out on the best Tapas i've ever tasted. Stacy's, Hatch 22, Dome. All are pretty pricey compared to the 70-100 here but all are quality.

    Service sucks at Maty's. As if the owners aren't paying their food servers well. Parang galit sila pag may customer. Maty's Tapsilog isn't as goos as before but their Pork BBQ makes up for it.

    I hereby nominate Pan De Amerikana's Tapsilog/Tocilog. Generous servings of tapa or tocino, perfectly cooked sunny side up egg, real sinangang (not plain rice topped with toasted garlic) at an affordable price of P75 in a decent ambiance.

    This article is lazy at best. I was hoping for little-known-yet-definitely-a-go-to restaurant and you suggest your readers to try out Jollibee, Rufo's, and Max?! It's like telling people that one of the 10 best hamburgers in Manila comes from McDonald's.

      my thoughts exactly. tapsilog is one of my all time favorite breakfast and this list kinda makes me mad. how bout doing more research and not limiting the list to the affordable tapas. Some people actually like to spend a bit of money for quality food

    i love tapsilog and i've been on above. In my own experience and opinion, the best tapsilog is Irma&Teri's Tapsilogan located at Citihomes Subd Molino4 Bacoor Cavite (likod ng SM Molino). Their tapa is tender, juicy and has all the right blend of tapa in it. And it comes with a FREE ice tea for 55pesos only! I talked with the owner (irma) and she told me it's her own recipe, I hope they sell uncooked tapa :) Oh by the way, their pansit canton is the best. Lasang lasa talaga at good for two persons pa sa halagang 65 lang

    ok jolibee tapa is not good and it is consistently BAD... as the people said there are alot of hidden tapa around. I don't mind if you add expensive tapa places but you didn't include Bfast/Bistro Filipino Chef Laudico's Angus Beef Tapsilog.... it is expensive but worth it and you also get that in there eat all you can in bistro filipino... just my 2 ents

    I don\'t think it qualifies as a tapsilog dish but for php 99, you get Mang Jimmy\'s tapa Mix with unlimited rice. The beef and pork strips come tender, flavorful with a smoky aftertaste and serves 3-4 hungry dudes. you can always order an egg on the side :)

    Rodic's is awesome. They also have this chili powder where you can mix with your vinegar. The sweetness of the tapa bits and the vinegar+chili powder and the glorious amount of sinangag makes Rodic's the BEST.

    try taps in antipolo(behind ELopez Center and Cloud 9). it captured the perfect mix of sweetness and saltiness with the right meat texture that makes its tapa so enjoyable to eat (parang yung corned beef sa taza de oro)coupled with its own mixed vegetable atsara (talong, sitaw, ampalaya, onions plus apples),double yolk fried egg and pospas all for 88 pesos! enjoy the fantastic view of the metropolis at night or the Sirra Madre mountain range.

    you could also order tapa as pulutan (P125 for a hefty serving)to go with taps "beer na puti", that's chilled beer for only P32.

    for really over-indulgent tapsilog, try the angus salpicao in melo's at burgos circle. its angus beef cooked in olive oil and garlic served with garlic rice and two fried eggs. its really pricey tapsilog since it is about P2,000.00.

    I am not a fan of Rufo's - too much sauce going on.
    The best beef tapa I've ever had was in Angeles, Pampanga - A.C. Rumpa. But I heard they have a branch in Paranaque already. I don't know if the food there is as good as the one in Angeles. Or as cheap.

    Not the best but definitely worth every centavo,Pinoy Toppings' tapsilog takes the cake when you're nearly empty in the finance department (read:students) soup and fried banana sweetens the deal even more not to mention the ginormous fried rice portion.

    rodic's seems to be the most liked/loved tapsihan! i can't wait to try their tapsilog... i hope it would not disappoint.

    @ mannix: i haven't tried tapsilog on a hot sizzling plate... a sizzling tapsihan could be a great concept, di ba? good luck!

    To Igeramos... I think those are Maty's you mean... Yes, they are all over the place.. and they're been there since the 80's.... and still geat, though I've experienced bad servings..

    And As for Sinangag Express in Makati CInema Square ... They have gone downhill and never seem to care.. I should know coz I live in the area since 1996. The egg was fried carelessly. The rice seemed newly cooked with the garlic just mized in, and it wasn't hot.. The condiments are 'tinipid'. And soup I never even cared to taste. Worst of all, the staff don't care a bit about improving their service, it definitely reflect's the owner - maybe he's just happy enough with the so-so business...

    I remember Tapsi Ni Vivian from way back in the mid-90s. Back then, their tapsilog was made of ground beef and not strips - was best with their spicy vinegar and onions.

    @Boom - I Have tried "I Have Two Eggs" tapsilog and it wasn't my type. And so far anyone I know didn't like it either.

    Another resto with great tapsilog is MOMO at the eastwood city mall. The dish is actually a all-Filipino breakfast meal and comes with an omelette and longanisa.

    one of the best hole-in-the whole resto i've eaten very sumptuous tapsilog (with my kind of belnd - saltier than sweet) is tuding's located in various places in laguna and carmona. though their main specialty is their delicious porkchop, they make a mean taspilog too!

    Goodah made it to the 10 BEST tapsilog in all of Manila?! No way!

    We ate there a few months ago. Aside from the tapa being very tough, the fried rice and egg smelled of old oil pa. When we complained, yung sagot ng girl at the counter was "ganun po talaga." Yuck. Plus medyo mahal sya for P75.

    @igeramos, it seems that you're very familiar with the vicinity. Actually, napakaraming tapsihan from tambo-don galo- la huerta-san dionisio area.. and extending up to sucat. Teka, hindi ba ikaw na din ang nagreply sa comment ko noon na hindi ka naniniwala na may "cheap" eats pa below P100? Na baka mas mahal pa ang medical bill mo right after eating?

  • psychoCOW
    While I agree with most of the list, I have to disagree with the inclusion of Sinangag Express (Makati Cinema Square Branch) in this list. IT'S HORRIBLE. You guys got this so wrong! The two Sinangag Express branches in BF Parañaque are way better than the branch in MCS, BY A MILE!

    And I'm also surprised Jollibee made it to this list. In fairness, their Tapa is pretty good, I just thought there may be other restos that might be better. But it's hard to find fault in this list, though.

    @Haha I stand corrected. It is between La Huerta and San Dionisio and not Don Galo. So it is along Quirino Ave going to Zapote. Thank you for pointing it out to me.

    @mary ann lei where does your dad get the meat of the tapang usa? is it wild, like a game? interesting.

    @igeramos, From the directions you've said, I dont remember any tapsihan between SPCP and Don Galo Bridge.. baka going to Zapote right after St. Paul.. Don Galo is in the opposite direction going to MIA..

    Best tapsihan of all time will be Marlett's at Abad Santos, Tondo. Non-comparable to all the places that has been mention in this article. In its heyday in the 90's, you even have to ask somebody whose eating to reserve his seat for you after his done. With the table and chairs extending to the middle of the street just to accommodate all customers.

    i met Vivian of Tapsi ni Vivian some years ago while working on a project for Maggi! Her first tapsihan was somewhere in Antipolo, near the church area. Masarap ang tapsi. :)

    Dati yata syang model and she has loads of pics with artistas and politicians in the antipolo store. :)

    The best tapsilogs I've tried are found among the oldest food joints in Bambang, Manila -- Aling Chades and Lola Ely's. Although sanitation can be quite questionable in these establishments, the savory tapa they offer would certainly not disappoint one's discriminating taste! Everything on the menu is cheap, and every order comes with a free yummy sabaw!

    I also love the the tapsilog at Gram's Diner! It's a must-try, too! Yum!

    rufo's earns plus points for the sauce..and they're generous with it,even if you didnt order tapsilog..but rodic's is really the one that hits the spot!

    One of the best I tasted is along the main road going to Zapote in La Huerta in Parañaque right after St. Paul's College and St Andrew's Church and just before reaching Brgy. Don Galo boundary. There are dozens of hole-in-a-wall tapsihan. Best time to go is just before midnight when the traffic is lighter. You eat with the jeepney drivers that ply the Baclaran-Zapote route. Interesting food anthropology.
