I graduated from Holy Family School along Maginhawa, the famous foodie street in Quezon City, which is why it is sacrilegious for me not to be a Rodic's tapsilog devotee. Their flaky beef tapa brings back good memories. The garlic rice and egg seal the deal. Their free soup is actually sinigang so you really get your money's worth. I always get two servings of their soup because it goes well with my favorite all day breakfast meal.
They now have a branch at UP Town Center, which is perfect for mall rats who want to savor yummy tapsilog, while reminiscing on simpler times. It is the best cheat day idea, which is kind to your wallet and guaranteed to make your day a lot sunnier.
