There's allot of tapsihan here in the Philippines and most of it are just near in your place and maybe one of those is the tapsi of Vivian. Well, I don't personally know Vivian, i was just invited to eat here by my team mates since my colleague will pay some of our food and we will pay the excess. Hay... It's really a long way ride from home and we really need to ride a cab because this place is not located near highways. But it's ok, at least i got a chance to eat and have a taste test.. This branch is located in Project 3 Quezon City, but what i have heard is that, the most popular branch that they have is in Marikina. Ok, for those who don't know the meaning of TAPSI and BULALO. Just read this.
TAPSI - is the term used when tapa, garlic-fried rice ("sinangag"), and fried egg ("itlog") are combined into one meal, which is served primarily during breakfast.The word tapa is related to the Sanskrit term tapas which means "heat". In Tagalog, a restaurant that primarily serves tapa is called a tapahan, tapsihan or tapsilugan. According to some sources, "tapsilog" and "tapsihan" are slang words. However, these terms are used by those restaurants and many Filipinos of all social strata. Tapsilog and tapsihan, therefore, may be considered standard words in the Filipino language and not slang. ( Thanks WIKI!)
BULALO - is one such favorite soup and the hotter it is the better. It is best complemented by the marrow that is tapped out of the bone. This delightful Beef soup is a specialty of the cattle-raising region in the province of Batangas.( Thanks Recipe Wiki)Ok, Let me share to you my reviews for Vivian.The place is big and it look like a big Bahay kubo, clean and the food are presentable. The price is good for their servings and most of their tapsi are ranging Php.80.00 but some of it are over Php 100. Here are that pictures that I've took using my mobile phone.
