I was in Tapa Heaven this morning!
"SARAP!!!!!!" With a thousand exclamation marks! Am I exaggerating? I do not know. But it is now my favorite.
Tita Des, Mom of Lisa, said, she buys her tapa and longanisa at Teresa's in Farmer's Market, Cubao all the time.
I just bought one kilo to try, half of it, I gave to Kuya but the other half..... With all the fat was mine!
I added half a cup of water to the tapa, cut the fat into small pieces and let it fry in its own fat!
It was like butter ....but... did not melt in my mouth .... instead... it crumbled as you bite into each piece.
PD also was in Beef Tapa heaven because I gave her most of the fat!
I even fried the egg in the tapa fat rendered from the beef.
I want to have a breakfast party! Problem is..... I cannot wake up early enough to serve breakfast.
