Why Mindanaoans especially Dabawenyos still love TAPS

New fastfood outlets and restaurants may pop up like mushrooms in Davao City Mindanao but methinks Dabawenyos still love TAPS. Taps, short for “tapsilog” (tapa – sinangag – itlog), has long been in the food industry in Davao City and it’s known for its wide array of “pares” or “tapsi” meals. Name it – they most probably have it. From tapsilog to bangsilog (bangus-sinangag-itlog) to tocilog to lekasilog (lechon kawali-sinangag-itlog) to adosilog (adobo-sinangag-itlog), TAPS Davao has it!

If I’m not mistaken, they’ve been in existence for more than 15 years. Taps was one of the places my friends and I frequently hung out in during our high school days (only goes to show my age, eh?) These days, Taps now has branches in Bolton Street (the one I still frequently go to), Sta. Ana Street, Legaspi Street and at Matina Town Square.

So why do Mindanaoans especially Dabawenyos still love TAPS?

Firstly, because the prices are oh-so-affordable!

Just take this primasilog meal, for instance. Primasilog means pritong manok-sinangag-itlog!

For only P55.00, you get two pieces of medium-sized fried chicken, egg and fried rice. Not bad, right?

Secondly, TAPS Davao is a super no-frills, just good and fast food place. Order from their extensive menu, wait for a few minutes and voila! You’re served! This is probably why a lot of office workers and students eat at TAPS — affordable yet tummy-filling meals served fast.

So have you visited TAPS Davao City lately? What was your experience like?
