TAPSI NI VIVIAN


Serving very good tapa since 1984: TAPSI NI VIVIAN :)

I love their interior. Simple and very clean.


 Orders come with free soup. It is actually beef broth from their bulalo, yum!


The essentials:

 Spiced Vinegar and Soy Sauce

Calamansi and Chili

As we anxiously wait for our tapsilog (tapa + sinangag + itlog) orders, I got up and admired their display of viands. There's a lot to choose from! They said aside from tapa, their bestsellers are crispy pata and lechon kawali.

 The bulalo section: Hello indeed!

 Choose your ulam: fish escabeche, caldereta, pinakbet, etc, etc, etc...

 Daing na bangus, shrimps, fried tilapia, barbecue, etc, etc, etc...

 Their best-selling Crispy Pata

Lechon Kawali, longganisa, bopis, etc, etc, etc...

And then our order arrives:

 TAPSILOG (tapa, sinangag, itlog)
Tender marinated beef with garlic fried rice and egg - sunny side up! :)YUMMY!

 Pairing mine with Coke Zero

 Our plates only after a few minutes...!

Tapsi ni Vivian also has "Roofdeck" which you can rent for all your partying needs. Our high school batch had our grand reunion here. :)

  4. hi dessa,the tapa is indeed tender, sweet, and the garlic rice was fragrant, with the fried egg having the right saltiness on the egg yolk. ms. vivian has surely mastered the art of making tapsilog!

  5. BTW, I love your blog. I believe Marikina has more hidden foodie gems than any other city in the Metro.

    Tapsi ni Vivian has been around forever. They've switched locations once or twice and they're still one of the best tapsi places in the country that serves chicharon bulaklak on a regular basis. Believe me when I say that this is rarely seen elsewhere. That being said, there has been a MAJOR decline in their Tapsilog since they first started serving it. It used to be a huge plate full of tapa and a mountain of rice that would make you think twice about ordering extra. I hope they don't sink any more than they already have.

  6. thanks so much Ashley! ;-) hope you drop by this blog whenever you can.

    i agree that their servings are becoming miniature by the minute. I remember one of my orders served with what seemed to be two tablespoons of tapa. hehe! next time i visit i'll make sure i tell the management. been hearing about the same complaint regarding the serving even in other blogs. ;-)

  7. umasenso sila sa pang gugulang, di sila marunong magbayad ng utang nila, mga karneng kinukuha nila lahat utang! madaming pinagkakautangan yan di marunung magbayad!

      Anong utang? Eh yung mga karne nila galing sa sarili nilang farm. Obvious na gumagawa ka lang kwento. Haha! Maghanap ka na lang ibang sisiraan mo.

  8. Got led here through a Pinoy Exchange thread talking about some of the best tapsilog in town.

    Great stuff! I am actually fascinated how Marikina is becoming like some sort of foodie town with its hidden finds and gems.

    Great blog that we keep coming back to, also. Looking forward to more posts
