IMUS CITY | Filipinos love tapsilog which is an abbreviation of (Tapa-Sinangag-Itlog). If you are in Imus, City, one place I highly recommend is located at Anabu 2B, Imus City Cavite, Tapsihan Ni Lolo Boy. Since we were busy working on a school activity about Imus City, I told my students that I'd like to give it a try and taste what it was really like and also to be included in our in our activity to promote Imus City.
TAPA is a fried beef strips where chefs do their own touches of marinating the beef. Each one has their own blend depending on their own preferences. SINANGAG is basically fried rice which is sometimes mixed with garlic and a bit of soy sauce. ITLOG is basically afried egg.
It was late lunch when we finished with our project so when we arrived, it wasn't that busy at all. With so many tables around the house, you can already feel that a lot of people do come here and dine.
