Naturally, it was Brandon who first tried Tapsilog Avenue’s tapsilog. If it’s the first time you’ve heard about the Pinoy chow, tapsilog, originally a breakfast meal, is a combination of tapa (cured beef), sinangag (garlic fried rice) and itlog (egg). It has hatched many other siblings, particilarly bangsilog (bangus, or milkfish with rice and egg), cornsilog (corned beef with rice and sgg), longsilog (longganisa, or sausage with fried rice and egg), tocilog (tocino, or cured pork, with rice and egg), hotsilog (hotdog, fried rice and egg), chicsilog (chicken, fired rice and egg) — the list is endless.
Today, silogs are enjoyed at any time of the day, for Filipinos are known to be heavy rice eaters.

I like my sinangag like the original, without the fancy stuff like margarine, but the beef was good, tender and tasty — otherwise I’d give my tapsilog a lavish rating. Brandon and Eugene rated theirs high. Hahaha, the hubbly was full, yet felt talo (a loser). He picked the tab.
Tapsiliog Ave. is located at the back of Fariñas Trans and beside RCJ Lines, Don Hernando Ave., Laoag, Ilocos Norte.
