About Us

From Philippines to anywhere in the world, there's one for everyone!

In 1987, the first Tapa King was born along Gallardo Street in Makati. The idea was to give customers a rice meal alternative to hamburgers, hotdogs and pizza – the real Pinoy comfort food that is filling and reminds you of your favorite home-cooked meals.

From the humble aim of providing a home-style food option in the clutter of fast food restaurants, Tapa King is now one of the top Pinoy favorites. With quality products and excellent service, the brand expands its reach as it continues to open branches not just locally, but all over the world.

To date, the brand has opened 100 stores and is looking forward to the next 100 more.
