Everybody loves a good breakfast! Having a heavy breakfast with rice is part of the Filipino culture and one of our favorite staple breakfast meals is Tapsilog.

I mean, who wouldn’t love Tapsilog? It’s a balance of strong flavored, marinated beef (Tapa), garlic rice (Sinangag) and a sunny-side-up egg (Itlog).

This is a breakfast meal you can enjoy even at lunch or dinner. It has the protein and carbohydrates you will need for a busy and tiring day ahead. You can indulge your Tapsilog with different condiments like catsup, soy sauce (with calamansi), or vinegar.

We gathered the best places around Metro Manila to give you the best Tapsilog experience. Here are some of them:
