Return to RUFO'S!!!

In the late 1980s,
the Makati Avenue area
was the place to be:

the coolest bars,
the hottest babes,

were all in this part of Binayland
before it inadvertently morphed,

20 odd years later,
into a strange amalgam of
Koreatown + Red Light District.


Back then,
after a hard day's night of drinking,
our noses would literally lead us to the aroma
of tapa, fried eggs, and garlic rice
arising from this legendary tapsilog joint
that opened way back in 1984:



This is the legendary TapSi of RUFO's,
the only tapa in MetroManila
that, Cow Label-like,
was served smothered with a sweetish gravy,

a perfect counterpoint
to the saltiness of the "sunny side up",
and the spice of the sinangag:



Rufo's Tapsilog now costs P74.00 per order,

and sadly,
there are no more views of
bodacious blondes walking by in short shorts;

where I.S. (International School) once stood,
is this barren wasteland:

Yes! Rufo's! Napakasarap ng kanilang tapsilog. Pati corned beef! Tsaka danggit! Perfect breakfast place and nightcap place. Yikes I'm craving tuloy.
