Rufo's Tapa Timog Re-Launch with Co-Owners Rocco & Kyle Nacino

Friday, October 16, 2015

For many years, Filipinos have found a way to create a unique meals to satisfy our own cravings. One of the most popular meal that every Filipino loves not only for breakfast but any time we get hungry - TapSiLog. At Rufo's Famous Tapa, they do it the special way.

For decades, Rufo’s built a cult following for serving their iconic Tapsilog, or Tapa (fried beef strips), Sinangag (garlic rice) and Itlog (fried egg) — a Filipino “All-Day Breakfast” dish. Rufo’s tapa recipe was so famous for its rich, sweet, mouth-watering sauce that customers swore by its slogan, “Sauce Pa Lang, Ulam Na!” (“The Sauce is a Dish on its Own!”). 

The success of this eatery helped popularize the local Tapsihan, a Philippine version of the American Diner, serving local breakfast fare 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Today, Rufo’s operates a chain of 24/7 fast-casual Filipino restaurants all over Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

Rocco Nacino has been very blessed, he has been receiving wonderful projects and he already has proven that he is one of the most sought after actor in his generation. He is currently part of GMA Teleserye Beautiful Strangers with her long time girlfriend Lovi Poe, also with Heart Evangelista and Benjamin Alves.

Just last year, during his birthday celebration, he mentioned he wanted to have a business of his own, a food business. Seems like this year, he has finally reached one of his birthday wishes. A food business of his own. Together with his brother Kyle Nacino, they ventured into food business. They now co-own Rufo's Tapa at Timog branch just in front 
of GMA Network.

Present during the grand relaunch of Rufo's Tapa were:
 Mark Herras
 Mikoy Morales
Miguel Tanfelix and Bianca Umali who will star in the upcoming teleserye 
"Wish I May".
Plus Barbara Miguel, Diva Montelaba, Wyn Marquez, and Jay-R
Lovi Poe is also present during the relaunch. According to Lovi, she supports Rocco in all his endeavors especially now that he is venturing in the food business. When asked if she wanted to join them in the said endeavor she said she doesn't want to because it's a family thing but maybe in the future, who knows. They have been talking from time to time what kind of business they want in the future but for now, they're just in the verge of talking about it, not yet in the planning stage.

Lovi added that she is very proud of Rocco because he is very responsible and he knows what to do with his money. He spends wisely and right now that they are working side by side in a teleserye which also started their love story way back when they were paired in a GMA afternoon teleserye, she said, she treasures all the time they spend together and they also love traveling. 

Lovi also revelaed that she love eating at Rufo's, infact she loves their Tapa and their leche flan as well.

During the grand relaunch, Rocco said that he is very excited with Rufo's that he is very hands on together with his brother Kyle with the operations and marketing. They did the photo shoot for the flyers and from time o time, when he has no taping or shooting, he would drop by at Rufo's to check the area and even grab a bite as a customer. 

According to Rocco, he didn't think twice about Rufo's Tapa since it has been a favorite go-to place for affordable and delicious Pinoy dishes since it opened its very first branch in the 80's. 

He loves all the food especially their Tapa since it is known for its juiciness and sweetness. 
Aside from this, customers can also try different meals on their menu. They will surely love it since they also have affordable prices.
