my friends and i, who are usually found wandering the streets of makati, finally got off our lazy butts and visited our friend joyce’s new business. she drove us to their food kiosk at sm supercenter, frontera verde, pasig. papa chalupa is the name of her stall. unfortunately we didn’t really know what to expect because honestly.. what the heck was a chalupa? it looked like tacos so who cared what should it be called. they’re just tacos. only fatter..? at first it didn’t make any difference. but long story short. it was gooood. and totes different from a regular taco. they’re actually cooler than tacos. chalupas don’t explode into tiny pieces when you take a bite at it. but it’s also not a soft taco. it’s that cool. i got the beef chipotle chalupa. their chipotle sauce was the bomb. (it wasn’t extremely spicy but i just had to say it was the bomb because it was awesome)
patience is required in purchasing your chalupa because it takes time to create this piece of comfort food. all chalupas by papa chalupa are freshly made. so be patient.
also! in the philippines, when one says “iced tea” it’s usually “nestea”. but papa chalupa has their own brew that i’m sure all foodies will enjoy. if you want legit iced tea, try papa chalupa’s.
they’re opening a new branch at sm megamall on the 1st of march. try it!!
so here are some photos from today.. to entice all you slaves of food
leaving makati is a big effort for my friends and i. it’s actually pretty weird.
i commend my friend, diigii for her awesome logo. (lol my friend’s head is in the way in this photo)
it doesn’t get any fresher than this. this dough needs an award because it just tastes so good. i can eat it without everything else. it’s that good.
those stuff blew me away when after my first bite, i realized they didn’t crumble. i still can’t understand
love is chalupa. just kidding. they’re cool for spreading the truth about love though.
try some of their special hot sauce! (it also has a cute label. products with well designed labels are worth a try)
congrats to the owners of papa chalupa! you guys are cool
