Here in my receipe of Tapa Rice, I made use of theTapa bought in Taal, Batangas. I usually buy Tapa in Taal because it is one of the best I’ve tried. Good thing we have a friend who’s parents sells Sepcial Tapa and Longganisa at the public market of Taal, Batangas. Gerry & Lheen is the name of the stall.
