I should've just ordered the tapa. Their spaghetti with meatballs was disappointing. All I can say is that they can take a really good photo of the food. It looks big and appetizing.

I have to admit that I am a creature of habit in a sense that I always stick to one particular meal in certain food places. My staple food from Rufo's is their Famous Tapa. With the numerous times I have devoured this delight, I can attest that the taste has always been consistent! I don't mind getting this meal every week! 128522 The downside with this particular branch is that they aren't open for 24H.

Such a loser though, it was my first time to have Rufo's Tapa on my table. Finally, ending my ignorance was worth having this review. I rated it with 5 stars probably because the sauce from the tapa is much flavorful, you'll end up ordering an extra rice. Tapsilog tagged as their best seller, this meal is perfect not only for breakfast, it's way more perfect to have the meal even in lunch or in dinner. No comment on its taste, it is beyond perfection and it is for you to figure out. Anyway the price however is not for those who would have second thoughts on ordering this perhaps. Quite memorable though because i had this meal after encountering Pope personally in UST.

The tapa is good. Stands up to its tag line. "Sauce pa lang, ulam na". It costs php116 (more or less). Serving of beef tapa paired with 1 egg, just enough to make you feel satiated.

I like sloppy Jo-Jo burger better. And it's only for php39. The filling / patty (I don't know if you can call it patty) literally melts in your mouth. So good! :)

I ordered their famous tapa. However, I think it is more like beef steak because of the sauce.

It was our dinner here last night. I enjoyed the Prawn crackers more than i did with my Beef Steak and rice. The sauce was a bit sweet for me. But masarap naman. And mura pa for just
below 100 pesos. The Kropek was good and crunchy and for 12pesos only! Haha! I'm sure ill be back here. Ang daming choices!128077

I have asked my friend to eat breakfast with me after our work shift and I'm glad she said yes (kahit pareho na kaming zombie sa bulging eyebags namin hahahah!!) We went straight to P.Noval and ended up here at Rufo's. The crew were accomodating. One staff assisted us to our preferred seat and gave us a menu with matching smile pa. So we both decided to order their Famous Tapa.. (Since they have a catchy tagline "sauce pa lang ulam na" ) I don't have any plans to eat my usual (meaning ordering an extra rice) i just want to fulfill my plan since last night and that is to enjoy breakfast with my friend.128516 And then the tapa came.. Hmm.. The tagline was right. Sauce palang.. Or rather almost sauce na lang.. Goodness!! Since it's a Monday morning and the staff are nice I did not attempt to irrate myself. So what I did was to call the accomodating crew to place another order and I ordered sisig and this time the serving was ok, good for sharing pa nga. But I was not impressed with their sisig, tasted ordinary. For their tapa, it maybe pleasing to my taste buds but what really concerns me is the tapa's quantity.. Almost sauce na lang.

Nothing beats a good tapsilog for breakfast! So i went to rufo's and there i had a good breakfast.

Of course i ordered their famous tapsilog. It was served with garlic rice. Ok. Now lets go to deconstructing what is on the plate (not that there is a lot in it).

Their tapa is weird lol. It was so saucy that it looked more like bistek tagalog or adobo. What i know is tapa is just marinated dried and fried meat. Um... It was good but it was really salty. And since they fill your plate with the sauce, your rice will also end up tasting very salty since they have already seasoned the garlic rice. The beef was soft though.

I would go back there only because it is cheap at P108. But i have tasted better beef tapa which stays true to what tapa should be hehe

I also tried their tapa burger? It wasnt good. Haha.

Everything is overpriced for the quantity and more importantly for the taste..no wonder they are calling attention of passers-by these days..

We went near UST again to have dinner and we did not consult looloo this time so when we passed by this "caresto" (half carinderia half resto, i just made that up so feel free to suggest something better haha) we gave it a try since it was a bit packed.

We ordered Chicken Sisig (127775127775127775), their Famous tapa (127775127775127775127775) and embotido (127775127775127775127775127775) as you can see, embotido scored the highest because it tasted like no other! Haha try it when you come by here. 128077

The place was half air-conditioned and the other half was for smokers. 128684

It was worth a try at least once. 128513

Totally love their tapa! Best tapa I've ever eaten around UST. The area with air con don't have cellular though but the tapa's really worth coming back for! It's totally a must-try.

Their chicken sisig's also good, it's good for two and it has this buttery taste. 128077128077

Tried their newly opened branch at P. Noval. It did not disappoint 128516 I liked the tapa. Though there's a part with ac and a part without and it's really hard to find a seat on the ac part (wearing a blazer ac is needed) And our phones don't have service -1 128078 Will deftly come back though. 128522

It's my first time to eat here, i'm sorry Rufo's fans...128531128532

On the bright side, i'm just so happy these fun restos are slowly popping up within the vicinity of UST -- my forever alma mater!128047

We got the tapa, it was okay. Would it be wrong if i want to try their tinola the next time i visit?? Okay fine, maybe the liempo instead.128513
