Siopao literally means steamed buns in Hokkien, also called bazoi. Thais call it salapao.
Best when steaming hot, siopao is soft to the bite stuffed with your choice of either pork (no red dot at the center) or chicken (with red food coloring marking). Other popular stuffings are asado or bola-bola, with exotic and new culinary inventions using shrimp, eggs, scallions, nuts, spam, ube, and pineapple.
To brush aside scare rumors commonly associated with siopao that it may be stuffed with cat meat, get your oven fresh siopao from a decent restaurant or food chain, or homemade from someone you know.
