Tapa (Filipino cuisine)
From WikiPilipinas: The Hip 'n Free Philippine EncyclopediaTapas meaning light finger food.
Tapsilog is the term used when tapa, fried rice ("sinangag"), and fried egg ("itlog") are combined into one meal, which is served often during breakfast. In Tagalog, a restaurant that primarily serves tapa is called a tapsihan. But according to CopongCopong's Pinoy Slang Dictionary, "tapsilog"  and "tapsihan"  are slang words. However, these terms are used by those restaurants and many Filipinos of all social strata, therefore "tapsilog" and "tapsihan" could be considered standard Filipino language and not slang.
Due to the word "tapsilog", all dishes that have fried rice and fried egg on it are suffixed with silog in their name. Such as the following:
- Adosilog - adobo, fried rice and fried egg
- Bangsilog - bangus (milkfish), fried rice and fried egg
- Bisteksilog - beefsteak, fried rice and fried egg
- Dangsilog - danggit (rabbitfish) , fried rice and fried egg
- Chosilog - chorizo, fried rice and fried egg
- Chiksilog - chicken, fried rice and fried egg
- Cornsilog - corned beef, fried rice and fried egg
- Hotsilog - hotdog, fried rice and fried egg
- Longsilog - longganisa, fried rice and fried egg
- Litsilog - lechon, fried rice and fried egg
- Tosilog - tocino, fried rice and fried egg
- Pakaplog - Pan (bread), coffee and fried egg
 Restaurants that serve tapsilog
There are small restaurants in many barangays in the Philippines that serve tapsilog, however large business establishments have also ventured into selling tapa, such as Tapa King and Goto King.
