Get to learn more about each Regional Tapa dish:

Tapa Hamonado (Luzon region)

A sweet type of Tapa, cured with salt, sugar, pepper, and garlic. The Northern-style Tapa is cooked until the sugar starts to caramelize, leaving a glaze that gives the beef a sweet and salty flavor profile, topped with sweet pineapple bits and garlic chips.

Tapa Inasal (Visayas region)

Beef slices marinated with vinegar, ginger, and garlic. The Tapa resembles the classic Ilonggo dish of grilled chicken. Annatto oil gives a golden orange color to the dish and leaves a smoky aroma when sautéed. The marination of the beef slices has a sour and garlicky flavor.

Tapa Satti (Mindanao region)

Influences from the indigenous Mindanao style of cooking give this Tapa a unique taste. Beef slices are marinated with spices such as turmeric, ginger, coconut milk, and chilies. The tapa is served with a sweet and salty peanut butter sauce that complements the herbal flavor of the dish.
