It all started with a grandmother’s closely guarded recipe for delicious tapa. Handed down from one generation to the next, this recipe somehow found its way into the hands of two of the family’s most enterprising members. And the rest, as they say, is history. The tapa recipe has been parlayed into a very successful chain of fast-food eateries offering not one, but several tapa recipes for different tastes.
In 1987, the aunt-and-niece tandem of Ida de Guzman and Olga de Asis Lozada, foodies at heart, convinced family friend Richard Majul to join them in a unique fast food venture—favorite Filipino breakfast items that can be enjoyed all day. Tapa King started in 1987 as a hole-in-the-wall operation in Gallardo Street, Legaspi Village, in Makati City.
Tapa King became known for their trademark high quality beef cut into strips and marinated perfectly, served with fried egg with golden brown edges. Add golden rice to the mix to make the classic Filipino comfort food that can be eaten morning, lunch, dinner, and late night during overtime work or even after night-outs with friends.
Throughout the years, the company has gradually grown nationwide and has even expanded abroad to Dubai and Singapore, serving classic Filipino meals for the past 31 years. For franchise inquiries, visit their website.

An unforgettable dining experience is hard to come by these days. The combination of scrumptious food, thoughtful service from the crew, elegant ambiance, and reasonable prices is very hard to find. Dabawenyos, however, hardly ever experience this dilemma. Pidoks has been delighting diners there for decades, offering Kapampangan food offerings, top-notch service and a restaurant atmosphere with budget-friendly pricing. Pidoks guarantees that diners will walk out happy every single time.
Kare-kare, bulalo, and pork barbecue: these were the signature dishes of Pidoks back in the 80s, which started as a humble turo-turo stand in Davao.
Peter Mendiola, more commonly called “Pidok,” served as the inspiration behind the name of the startup restaurant. His passion for food and making people happy led to the entreprise’s inevitable success. His exceptional Kapampangan food was embraced by locals and Pidoks has gradually became a cultural landmark in the city.
As times have changed, so did the look of Pidoks, but the flavors remain unchanged to reflect the fine Kapampangan cuisine Dabawenyos have grown to love.
Today, Pidoks is being run by Peter’s daughter Myka and it now has three branches across Davao. Pidoks continues to delight its customers with its unparalleled cuisine and customer service.
Pidoks believes that the rest of the country deserves to experience its signature Kapampangan dishes, hence, its doors are now open for franchising.
