Home-cooked Pinoy food goodness at Tapa Supreme

I first saw Tapa Supreme on Espana Blvd. a few months ago and I was instantly attracted to its simple but neat interiors and no-frills Pinoy menu consisting of dishes that could just remind you of home like sinigang na baboy, beef with ampalaya, pancit bihon and bulalo served in a palayok. It's a non-airconditioned but pretty decent place with prices that are sure not to burn a hole in the pocket. It's always jam-packed with customers especially students, at meal times. I've lost count of the number of times I've eaten here with family and our favorites, 
aside from bulalo, are the tapsilog and sinigang na baboy. 
Here's what we've tried so far at Tapa Supreme:

Tapsilog, P55.
The tapa is a bit sweet and delicious and the meat is tender.
Bulalo, P75.
My favorite! Lots of soup. And see those bone marrow? So sinfully good!
T-Bone Steak, P75.
Good too! Notice everything on the hot plate's swimming in gravy. Haha!
Sinigang na Baboy, P65.
This is my youngest kid's all-time favorite. The soup is deliciously sour.
Beef with Ampalaya, P50. 
This was my daughter's order once for dinner. She didn't like it a lot.
Beef Pares, P50.
Quite good but no chili sauce! Grrr..! I settled for siling labuyo.
Pepsi products are available here.

At dinnertime. I love those native lamps.
Tapa Supreme on Espana Bvd,

Tapa Supreme has three branches that I know of in Manila - along Espana near the corner of M. Dela Fuente; on Dimasalang in Sta. Cruz and along Vicente Cruz at the corner of Dapitan (not sure of this last street, though). Go visit one of these days for some delicious and affordable Filipino food that remind you of mom's cooking. Happy eating!
