Tapapa Marikina

Filled under: , ,

Tapapa Marikina is your newest and hippest hole in the wall eatery located along J.P. Rizal Street, in Barangay Malanday, Lamuan. The name Tapapa comes from the two Filipino words:  tapa and pares.  Tapa is a typical Filipino breakfast dish made from thinly sliced meat either smoked or cured, perfectly paired with garlic rice. Pares is your classic Filipino beef stew also served with garlic rice and soup.

Although the pandemic shut down many businesses, many of them, despite many challenges became stronger and stayed in demand. With most of us locked down in our own houses, food delivery immediately became a hit and was the main source of income for our  local food business warriors. They officially opened on May 19, 2019 and opened their second branch in Maginahawa Street, Quezon City on August 5, 2022.  Check out our food recommendations from Tapapa. 

is their star dish and the most salable item in their menu. This is the perfect definition of the phrase breakfast of champions. Served with tapa and pares, sunny side up egg, garlic rice and hash browns. I liked how they've prepared their tapa. It had that light smoky flavor scent and it was kind of toasted underneath yet somewhat moist on top. The pares stew was not too sweet although I was looking for the moderately sweet taste that I was used to.  The meat was a little tough but can be easily fixed.  Priced at 220.

Sizzling Sisig is one of my most favorite food in Tapapa.  Priced at ₱120 an order, it's surely bang for one's buck. It's not healthy yet very fulfilling.  Calling all sisig lovers out there. 

Bulalo ng Tagaytay is boiled beef shank and some marrow soup. A big bowl of this soup this February will surely make everyone happy. The meat was kind of hard but the soup had that clean aftertaste and not oily. It was filled with so much vegetable and oozing with beefy flavor. ₱160 for medium sized bone marrow and ₱199 for large sized bone marrow. 

Roasted Bone Marrow Pares comes with garlic rice and hash browns. Priced at ₱175. Very affordable and creamy.

Platter in a Box B is their priciest item in their store (
₱399) yet it is your most perfect happy box that you can take home with you to share with your family and loved ones. It contains the most flavorful and sinful food that you can possibly think of. It has your slightly sweet salty tapa, Vigan bagnet, Vigan longganisa, Hungarian sausage, two sunny side up eggs and two cups of garlic rice. It also comes with your favorite condiments (toyo, suka at calamansi).
