Lark C is back in Taft so a Rap's request was granted. 128522 Wow it's been a long time since I've been here. The place is now renovated and the prices have increased.

My usual order is T-bone, medium-well. Tenderness wasn't consistent, some parts were tough. Four stars though for the taste, price, quick service, and because it's been renovated.

After work dine out with myself here in Raps. 128514 #foreveralone

Got their T-Bone steak with marbled potatoes. I paid an additional 30 bucks to have my rice changed to these potatoes. Weird that they were of different sizes though. Not too pleasant looking and it tasted so-so. The steak was great. Really cheap. I had it cooked Medium and they got it right. The meat was not too chewy/tough. 128077🏻 the gravy, served in a small pitcher, was buttery and oily good-good. I had to control myself from keeping on pouring more and more. 128514128514

Also got their Lemon Meringue for desserts. It was also a so-so. Just had the right sour kick combating the sweet. The base was a little dry though. cheap at 70bucks a slice.

Last night, my friends and I celebrated my birthday in advance, and my friend's career milestone 127881 We decided to eat in a resto in Vito Cruz based on this link: http://ph.phonebooky.com/blog/old-new-22-must-try-restaurants-around-dlsu-manila/. The review on RAP's Steaks and Cakes caught my eye, and we went with that.

We all ordered the PORTERHOUSE STEAK (330g) (P235). I had my steak well done for a change, since I always choose it to be medium well. The dish comes with a cup of steamed rice, and sprouted monggo beans. You can opt for either java rice, garlic rice, marbled potatoes, or mashed potatoes to replace the steamed rice for an additional fee (P15 or P30).

The resto also serves unlimited steak dip, which was a combination of butter, whipping cream, and milk. My my, this dip was so addicting 128551 I had to control the amount I put on my steak because I'm in my third week of healthy eating, and frankly, it's hard to keep the habit. (My friends were treating the dip like soup! That's how delicious it is!)

The steak with the dip really delivered. There were moments that I tasted burnt parts of the meat, but it didn't ruin the overall taste (I only tastes burnt meat for 3-4x, and it wasn't really burnt bad). The doneness of the meat was also inconsistent; there were parts that were more tender than others. (Take note that I had my steak well done.) Even so, I love this steak 128153

The waiters' attitude towards their customers was so-so, but they did get out orders right away, and delivered our dishes after ~10 minutes. The place was quite small and semi-clean (neat freak alert), but hey, I went there for steak, not for ambience.

For only P235, I'd say I got my money's worth. I've ordered far more pricey steak dishes from other restaurants, and I regretted letting my money go down the drain (hence, was never really a steak person).

So far, the steak in this resto is second on my list (next to Tony Roma's 128525). Definitely coming back.e

Discovered Rap's steakhouse during my stay at DLSU. To my surprise, binabalik-balikan ko na sya! 127860 I'm not sure how they maintain the quality of the food they serve while maintaining a reasonable price. Keep it up Rap's! 128076🏻128077🏻
Tip: don't forget to ask for GRAVY!
you might want to be seated inside (par di ka magamoy usok) 128522

Ambiance: 3/5. Small but clean place.
Service: 3/5. It differs everytime i visit. Minsan mabilis, minsan mabagal.
Food: 5/5. Masarap! 128536 Even the non-steak dishes *salpicao*
Cost: 5/5. Perfect for students because it's cheap but again, the taste is good! 128514

Thank you for being there whenever we're craving for some serious meat and celebrating a special occasion :)

For our monthsary, we were supposed to eat at Banapple Ayala Triangle but from the looks of it, we had to wait for hours (8th in line and it's NOT moving!). We were both coming from a 10 hour shift and we haven't really eaten. After 20 mins of waiting, we both snapped and decided to go to our favorite Taft place :)

Raps, as usual, made us happy and full :) Two large T-Bone steaks :9 We're glad it wasn't a busy weekday and we had our lunch in peace, free of queues.

Raps is the best place for steaks in taft. Especially their Butter Gravy! I can't get enough of those!!! I always finish half of the pitcher of butter gravy 128557 if any of you guys tasted it, you know what i am talking about 128518

I think this is the "best?" Place to get steaks in taft(?) hehe. Price is reasonable enough for steaks 128556 Price won't matter when you got butter gravy...Butter gravy is love 128514

Stepped in for dinner here at about 9 PM last night since I had a hankering for some cheap steaks close to home.

The large porterhouses were sold out so we had the large t-bones instead, priced at about 230 pesos, I think (I remember when they only used to be 160 pesos haha, good times!). The order comes with rice, a side of toge and unlimited gravy. The steaks we had which were medium rare and medium well were a bit tough to slice and chew huhu, but still pretty flavorful and the gravy still did not disappoint but it has since been ousted as yummiest gravy by the gravy at Snackaroo (as per my tastebuds haha). You can actually have your sides changed to something else if you charge extra, depending on the side you choose to swap it for.

Didn't get to taste their desserts that night, but I hope they're still as good as they used to be.

Ha! My sister is nagging me to try this place, glad I did. 9786

Our first date this 2015 127881127881127881

He had the regular T-bone and mine was glazed beef bbq. I thought his order was more delicious since it was bigger haha but when I tried both dishes, mine was better!!! 128518128079128079128079 *i won again*

Both were their bestsellers but my order was juicier because it clearly has a sauce but tender that the t-bone which was hard to slice. Major use of muscles pa. Hahaha.

Both were served generously and the prices were pretty reasonable. Service was just right 128077128077128077

My sister recommends that you dont order their cheesecakes because it taste bland. That's according to her so, we tried another place for our dessert 9786128523127846127848127847127874127856127850127851127854127849127852127853

My sister who studies nearby had always been bugging me to try this place out but I only got to eat here today! Ordered the Large T bone steak which costs 250 (if I remember correctly) was very tasty but some parts tasted weird - i literally tasted something close to perfume so that seriously bugged me out. I tried a portion of it again but it still tasted weird so I decided not to finish the whole portion of it anymore. Although I should say that I super loved their gravy - not only was it delicious but it also saved the steak from turning cold so fast! The service crew were very efficient also so I still gave this place 4 stars. Despite the weird taste I would still give this place a visit.

Sorry sa mga fans ng RAPS pero malas ata namin nung gabing yun. May galit ata samin yung cook, staffs, ewan. Ordered Porterhouse and T-Bone parehong medium rare, excited na excited pa naman ako dahil treat ko. Mabilis naman na serve, pero both steak ang tindi, pahirapan hiwain the fact na medium rare na. Tapos hirap nguyain huhuhuhu napahiya ako sa nilibre ko. Tagal pa naman namin d nagkita tapos pinakain ko ng parang goma. Nagastusan nako. Napahiya pako. Natingahan pa yung isang kasama ko. Salamat sa napakagandang alaala RAPS. 128078

P.S. wala pa silang nilagay na FREE side dish dun sa dalawang plate.

Rap's Steak House has been a very busy small restaurant. They've been feeding hungry students for quite some time now. What i like about this place is their value for money. It's friendly to students. But their servings portions are pretty decent. Although the taste of their food isn't that all fantastic, it's good enough and it beats hunger. A place for a quick meal if your lunch break is short or if you are pressed for time.
