This is the nearest restaurant from Motech that's why we decided to eat here. Tapsi ni Vivian offers great variety of food choices. We ordered Tapsilog and Adsilog for 110 pesos each. Softdrinks costs 40 pesos per can.
Service is fast and I liked their free soup. 128512128077

For a couple of months now, Josh has been bugging me to try Tapsi Ni Vivian. I think he first tried this after it was mentioned in the movie "I'm Drunk I Love You" (He is a huuuuge fan of this movie!). Since there isn't a branch near me, I put it off for a couple of months already. It was only until a couple of weeks back that he decided to bring me here to try their famous tapsilog.

Tapsi Ni Vivian serves awesome all-day breakfast meals, and one of their bestsellers and their namesake, Tapsilog (Php 110) is your no frills Filipino breakfast that every Pinoy must try at least once. 128150 The beef tapa was tender and flavorful, and when drizzled with their vinegar, the slight sweetness of the tapa is well complemented by the sour-spicy taste of the vinegar. Their tapa is also enjoyable because it's like a beef stee cooked for a long period of time -- the beef was tender, yet you can still chew on it and feel the strands of meat. 128076 The egg still has a flowy yolk, which may be mixed with the fried rice. I wish the rice was more garlicky though. 128517

I actually am tempted to get their chicharong bulalak, but we're not getting any younger -- so with all my willpower, I decided to skip it. HAHAHAHA.

Service is pretty straightforward. You go to the counter, order your food, and wait for it to be served. Ambiance in this branch is quite nice... I was expecting it to have no airconditioning units, and just ceiling fans to combat the heat. But the branch was well-lit and fully airconditioned! 10024

So, I'll leave you with this million dollar question: Rodic's, or Tapsi Ni Vivian? 128046

So after our relaxing but somehow tiring day in Luljetta, we decided to eat here since the weather is so perfect for some bulalo and tapsilog day. Yes, the rain hasn't stopped the whole daaaay.

I ordered the TAPSILOG (php110.00) the meat was so tender and really juicy. What I didn't like was the rice, kasi sobrang buhaghag nya. But its a good meal pa din naman.

We got BULALO (Php400.00) for our group. Gaaaahd! Yes it was not the super best bulalo, but this is what we were craving for during that time. The broth was tasty, and we even had our round 2 for the soup. The meat was also tender.

Service was fine, and they serve really fast ha. Hehe

All day comfort food at Tapsi ni Vivian. Bulalo, Crabsilog, and Desserts is definetly not at par with their famous Tapsilog. Take a pick from Graham Cake, Coffee Jelly, and Creamy Salads for your after-meal treat.

Tapsi ni Vivian is our default dinner place when we want quick, affordable food.

They were extremely busy and packed last Saturday night that even the new parking area was full. Luckily, a parking slot opened up as we were waiting in front of the restaurant.

They were focused on dispatching orders and there was a bit of a wait before anyone could take ours and we could sit down. Almost all tables were occupied anyways or needed bussing out.

We each got a Tapsilog. The tapa was still as good, slightly salty, slightly sweet. I immersed them in the vinegar and it tasted even better. We love how the tapa makes the vinegar flavorful as well that we put it on our tasty garlicky rice. Hubby's fried egg was dry but mine wasn't.

The Ampalaya with Egg was seasoned just right and the bitterness was manageable. The Lumpiang Togue wasn't crunchy anymore but hubby found it ok. The Crab Relleno looked burnt and overcooked but the filling wasn't. It still tasted great especially for the price. I forgot to ask for catsup though.

It was a full house and there were lapses in service. They didn't give us utensils when they served the food. They must have been stuck in the dishwashing area as we asked 3 times. No complimentary soup. They probably ran out because I saw piping hot bowls of soup being circulated when we were done. It took a while for the soy dish, calamansi and sili to arrive. By the time they reached our table, we had already poured the vinegar into one of the serving containers.

Total damage for this meal was around P400 including a can of soda and 1 cup extra rice. Despite the hiccups in service, we will still go back for their delicious and affordable dishes.

*the airconditioning units weren't turned on. Come to think of it, we've never seen them turned on.

This place used to be known for their bulalo. Not sure why people are raving about their tapa when there isn't anything special about it. Their bulalo has become bulablah. Nice to go here when you're drunk and need a finishing touch 128540 by that time, the taste won't matter.

To-go place if you're craving for some Tapsilog. The beef is sweet but just right and the meat is soft. My sister order sisiglog but she said that it was too salty for her. But for the Tapsilog, it is a winner!

The tapsilog's at P100. So-so. They've changed the marination and added more tapa. The bulalo's not worth its price because it's too salty and oily with lesser serving. What's good about this place? It's open 24hours with ample parking space.

Too lazy to prepare dinner at home, we stopped by here after work.

On the table
Tapsilog - overly sweet that day even after dipping the tapa in suka. Fried rice still super good
Nilasing na Hipon - not that crispy and nakakasawa
Upo Guisado - seasoned well
Crab Relleno - it doesn't look like much but it was really tasty and for a whopping P50 only!

This is still one of our go to places for quick and affordable meals. And did i mention that the complimentary soup is very tasty!

It was a very cozy place with lots of silogs to choose from. The servings are fit to how much its cost. At 90-115 pesos you already have a full meal of the silog of your choice. You may also choose other dishes from their counter. It is a self service restaurant just like any fastfood places.

Would you just look at that sinful, vein-poppin' "utak"? 128540

Just looking at it made me look up to the heavens and pray. Pray that I'll still live after eating this. 128513

Tapsi Ni Vivian has been around for ages. It's most especially famous to party-goers and night owls. When I was younger, we frequented one of her branches for a quick, late-night tapsi fix and it always satisfied us. They are best known for their silogs. The tapsilog is a bit similar to Rodic's of UP. Apart from the silogs, they also have other dishes that you can choose from. They usually offer dishes that would remind you of home and my favorite is their porkchopsilog. 128077

I used to love this place but maybe I've had a few more of the similar dishes in other places so I already have something to compare it with. It still can compete, but in my books, it's not number 1 anymore.

For those who are completely drunk or hungry and the rest of the world is already snoring, this would be a perfect spot. 128076

It's cheap, too! 128077

Just 2 stars for this particular visit because of the food we ordered.

We were surprised to be able to park last night at almost 7pm. I wasn't that hungry so i just had some of the sisig. The server asked if we wanted onions which we mixed up with the sisig. We didn't enjoy it though because it was oily and there was a lot of fat.

Hubby's lumpiang togue was so hard to cut. Makunat na but they gladly changed it upon our request.... But it was still makunat

Their fried rice is the bomb. I can eat more than one cup (secret na lang how much more 128513) on a grumbling stomach.

The complimentary soup was good. I think it was the broth of their bulalo.

I'll stick to our favorites next time
🔹tapsilog
🔹letsilog
🔹bbqsilog

*they turn on their aircon during breakfast and lunch only
