Siopao is a go-to snack for Filipinos, found almost everywhere in the Philippines. Like other popular dishes in the country, the siopao comes in several flavors and variants. For instance, Siargao has paowaw, a dessert bun that is filled with bukayo or sweetened shredded coconut meat. There’s also the toasted siopao, which is fried instead of steamed. As much as there are different kinds of siopao, there are more restaurants that serve this indigenized version of the Cantonese steamed bun. Among them is the popular Chinese fast-food chain in the Philippines, Chowking, which offers one mean and delicious Chunky Asado Siopao, packed with Hong Kong-style pork filling, made saucier inside “para asadong-asado ang sarap (for a braised meaty goodness).”

This bestseller in the fast-food establishment’s menu is a beacon of amazing quality and an explosion of flavors that will remind you of the authentic dining experience that Hong Kong-style pork buns provide.
