Siopao, or baozi, literally means "steamed buns". These yummy treats are buns similar to the traditional Chinese mantou with meat or vegetable filling.

According to legend, they were invented by the scholar and military strategist Zhuge Liang sometime in the 3rd century AD as an offering to the gods. They were designed to resemble human heads!

Today, in many Chinese cultures, these buns are quite popular and widely available. While they can be eaten at any meal, siopao are often eaten for breakfast. But they are even more popular as a portable snack or meal.

In the Philippines, the history of the siopao is said to have started with the Chinese- Filipino chef and entrepreneur, Ma Mon Luk. According to stories, he migrated to the Philippines in 1918 to earn his fortune in order to win the hand of a girl whose parents looked down upon his poverty. Ma Mon Luk soon opened a restaurant in Binondo, and there he introduced the siopao.

Thanks to him, I now can regularly enjoy this tasty treat. It is actually one of my comfort foods and one of the best places to get one is Globake. What makes it different (and really delicious) is that Globake already incorporates the sauce INSIDE the bun, making the filling really juicy and moist. The slight saltiness of the meat filling is balanced by the slightly sweet sauce.

Bite into one of their soft buns and you'll see what I mean. Hehehe!

PS - Sorry for the crappy photo.
