Filipino people rejoice when they find a restaurant that offers the authentic, flavorful food of the islands they love. That's why they love Tapsilog Express! We serve up delicious Filipino cuisine, and we do it fast and we do it well. Whether you grew up eating these tasty, homey dishes or are brand new to the experience, you'll discover a new favorite eatery in Tapsilog Express.
If "tapsilog" is a new word for you, you're not alone! Tapsilog is a beloved Filipino breakfast that you can eat all day long. First we take tapa, or thin slices of cured and dried meat, and marinate it. Then we cook it so it's hot, tasty and irresistible. Served with aromatic garlic rice, a fried egg and tomato slices, and you have the classic tapsilog. The "silog" part of the name comes from a combination of sinangag, for the rice, and itlog, for the egg. The combination of flavors is positively addictive.
Now for the fun part: there is an almost endless number of different silogs. You just have to change the meat! For example, a silog with eggrolls, or lumpia, is a Lumpiasilog. Tosilog is made with tocino, a kind of crispy Filipino bacon. You might even find Spamsilog, with—you guessed it—Spam!
Here at Tapsilog Express, we serve over a dozen of our very favorite silogs. Customers rave about our Bangsilog, with its panfried, boneless milkfish. Our Chosilog includes spicy chorizo sausage, and our Adsilog is made of peppery adobo. Try them all before you settle on a favorite!
While silogs our certainly our specialty, we also serve some other Filipino delights. Our Halo-Halo is a colorful and decadent dessert made with ice cream, flan, jelly, sweet fruits and more. Our authentic Leche Flan is topped with a layer of caramel. Our Pineapple Cooler is the perfect counterpoint to our hearty silogs.
Tapsilog Express is open late, so you can visit any time you crave something hot, savory and oh-so-delicious. Take out or eat in—it's all good!
