If you're a foreign tourist wanting to know what authentic breakfast in the Philippines is like, try having Tapsilog. Tapsilog is a famous Filipino term used when tapa, sinangag and itlog is combined into one meal usually served during breakfast. Tapa is refered to as the dried beef, sinangang is a day old rice cooked fried in a wok with garlic while itlog is Tagalog word for egg.
I fell in love with tapsilog when I was in highschool. I was one of those students who had to budget my humble allowance and I see the dish as a great value for money. I remember paying a measly P25 for a complete set of meal. What I also love about this Filipino dish is you can find it anywhere, from the side streets to high end restaurants.
