FRIED SIOPAO, RECTO

I noticed this small shop while walking along C.M. Recto Avenue. The bustle is enough to get me curious. I have always loved siopao (who doesn't?) and fried siopao, even with the spectre of oil looms in the horizon, didn't deter me from getting my hands on these hot buns. The only filling available is asado. It's steamed first, then the base is seared on those huge pans. It does make it taste a bit different. You must try it at least once in your life. And it's so cheap (and good)!



Two pleasures side by side. Siopao and sex mix in Recto.

hmmm. I just visited Kean's branch in Juan Luna corner Sta Elena in Divisoria and prices were raised to P13/pc. Also inquired about wholesale price but owners informed me they can't offer is at that price :(

Oh, this is sad news indeed! Prices are supposed to go down already because oil and jeepney fares are due to decrease in the coming days.

Salamat nga po pala for dropping by and linking to my blog! I'd link to yours as well.

There are two stations of fried siopao (chiense owned) along chinatown. One is at sta. cruz, and the other one at Salazar street. There is also a big one at the corner of Juan Luna street going to 168 shopping mall, divisoria. These are I believe 3 different owners.

Tupa, I am curious as to what exactly makes fried siopao different. If i have the time, id visit Emerald Garden. I heard they serve the largest siopao in the metro!
