To celebrate its 30th anniversary, Tapa King presents their first and newest endorser, Baste Duterte.
When we think of Tapa, we think of Tapsilog. We think of home cooked meals and comfort food, no frills and no pretensions. And throughout the years, Tapa King has always been synonymous to this Filipino breakfast. It started out as a trend, but now, all day breakfast – the modern tapsihan is a popular alternative to the well-known burger chains. Slowly, it has become no longer just breakfast and the Tapsilog trio of Tapa, sinangag, and itlog, became an all day meal for hungry Pinoys who wants a quick but satisfying dish.
Real taste of home.
In today’s overly staged, filtered and curated world, Tapa King remains a simple haven and stands out by being one of the few remaining places where people can just be themselves and eat as if their home.
Tapa King’s original Tapa recipe has been around for years. What began in 1987 as a humble intent to provide classic home-style Pinoy favorites along Gallardo Street in Makati, Tapa King has now grown into a well known provider of pure meal goodness with over 100 branches from Luzon to Mindanao, four of which are located outside the Philippines (three in Dubai and one in Singapore). As far as I can remember, our neighborhood Tapa King (Pioneer Kapitolyo) has been there since my college days (1998ish) but my original taste of Tapa King was in Pedro Gil in Metro Manila.
Tapa King prides itself in serving meals from a menu of delectable Pinoy favorites. Whether you’re up for classic Tapa, Tocino, Longganisa, Danggit or Beef Steak, Tapa King can bring you what you crave for and more. They even serve comfort Pinoy food staples like Beef Kare-Kare and Bulalo.
For Sebastian “Baste” Duterte, real indulgence is found in the home cooked spread served with no frills and no pretensions. “Pagdating sa pagkain, I’m the type who enjoys what I want, kahit saan pa man ‘yan. Wala nang arte-arte. The best for me ‘pag relax lang, when it makes me feel at home. ‘Yun yung gusto ko sa Tapa King – ‘yung parang may lutong-bahay kang mauuwian, “ Baste adds. When asked about his favorite he said that he likes Tapa Flakes, with its best-tasting original Tapa recipe, served with garlic rice, sunny side up egg and atchara.
“Were celebrating our 30th anniversary by introducing someone who completely embodies the way we serve food”, said Tapa King President and CEO Beatrice Magallanes. “Baste has the authentic Filipino grit, the kind who eats without pretenses. What you see is what you get with him, which is essentially how Tapa King is.
“Authentic and purely uninhibited, Tapa King offers home-cooked indulgence at its finest – the kind that anyone with a healthy appetite will want to come home to” Beatrice adds.
