7. The Good Tapa (P180) from The Good Tapa
Those who are always on the go would appreciate The Good Tapa's handy rice-bowl packaging for their tapsilog. Their beef is tender and almost silky in succulence—a texture improved even more by the runny sunny side-up egg.

5. Beef Sirloin Tapa from Pi Breakfast & Pies (P245)

The sirloin is tender, flavorful, and juicy; ticking all the boxes for what you would look for in tapa. Served with garlic kimchi rice (or plain white rice if you ask for it) and a soft-boiled egg, this clearly isn’t your typical
Pi Breakfast & Pies has branches at 39 Malingap Street, Teachers Village, Quezon City and The Grove by Rockwell, Eulogio Rodriguez Jr. Avenue, Pasig City.
4. House-Made Tapsilog from Manam Café (P245)
Served as thin, flat, curled strips that look like bacon—the tapa is tender at the center but crispy at the edges. You can tell there’s a lot of garlic, but competing with it is a citrusy, peppery taste that reminds you of homemade
Manam Café has branches at 3/F SM Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City and G/F The Podium, 12 ADB Avenue, Ortigas, Mandaluyong City.

1. Tapsilog from Goto Monster (P175)
What makes Goto Monster’s tapsilog special is, of course, the tapa, which is the perfect balance of sweet, salty, and garlicky. The meat is cut into lean, bite-sized pieces, cooked so that they're a bit crispy at the edges. The set comes with a side of tomato, mustard greens, and cucumber ensalada. The garlic fried rice is freshly cooked and the serving size is just right. At a pretty pocket-friendly price, you get an altogether filling meal you might just find yourself seeking out, whether or not you live anywhere nearby.
Goto Monster is at 245 Primo Rivera Pablo Ocampo Extension, Makati City.
