Customer Airs Dismay Over Small Serving of Tapa “Akala ko alamang”

Customer Expresses Dissatisfaction Over Small Serving of Tapa in his Meal

A male customer has expressed his disappointment and dissatisfaction over a small serving of tapa in his Tapsilog, saying, ‘Akala ko alamang.’

Tapsilog is like a flavor fiesta on a plate that has won the hearts of food lovers in the Philippines. The term “tapsi” comes from “tapa,” which is thinly sliced beef marinated to taste amazing.

The beef takes a nice, long soak in a special sauce made from soy sauce, garlic, and a sprinkle of secret spices. This magical marinade turns the meat into a flavor sensation, giving it that savory and slightly sweet kick.


“Si” in tapsilog, which stands for sinangag. Sinangag is simply garlic fried rice that’s cooked to golden perfection. Imagine fluffy rice meeting crispy bits of garlic – it’s a match made in foodie heaven.

“Log” in tapsilog, which stands for itlog, or egg. A perfectly fried egg with a slightly runny yolk is the crowning glory of this trio. The egg adds a creamy touch that complements the savory tapa and garlicky sinangag, creating a symphony of flavors on your plate.

Recently, Godkin Pascual, a Facebook user, shared photos of his Tapsilog meal with a considerably small portion of tapa. The post immediately circulated on social media and elicited reactions from the online community.


The viral photo features Godkin’s tapsilog order. He had high hopes for a hearty serving, only to be met with what he described as a mere “2 teaspoons” of tapa. He was expecting a small serving, but not that small.

Ine-expect ko na onti lang serving pero hindi ganyan ka onti like sa photo. Nadisappoint and nagulat ako kase parang halos 2 teaspoon ng tapa lang ata yun,” Pascual said.
