    OMG I love siopao. This is a recipe that I'm going to have to try. I remember when I was about 7 years old, my Auntie Leoning took me to Chinatown and bought me my first siopao to shut me up because I was asking her question after question after question. We continued on our way and she was so preoccupied by the shopping that she hadn't noticed that I was munching on the wax paper that is always stuck to the bottom of the buns. Nevertheless, even though my paper eating experience was not pleasant, I always have a place in my stomach for some hot white buns hehehe no pun intended.

    JM, I just finished making siopao filling out of a Jamaican chicken recipe that I revised, where I used soy sauce and orange/lemon juice instead of vinegar. Tasted like adobo/barbecue! I tried making a small empanada using it from leftover pei crust dough of an apple pie I made last night, and it was good! But son requested I make them into siopao instead, so that will be my mission tonight!

    like all of them i have to give this a try. siopao the way we pinoys love it is not that easy to find here. i still have to get to cantonese restos/fastfood when the craving hits. northern paos taste different.

    I tried making siopao before but unfortunately, palpak ang dough ko. I don't know how to use the yeast kaya naging crumbly ang dough. Do you know some siopao dough recipe na hindi na gagamit ng yeast? Frustration ko talaga itong siopao na ito :)

    LOL!! Jules, you are so funny :D "hot white buns" indeed!!

    Hi ces, yeah, it actually came out good with the potatoes.

    Hi Manang, I did see your siopao! I'll have to try it next time with the pre made dough. That chicken filling sounds delicious, btw!

    Hi Dexie, hehe! sure, send me your address, I may just hand deliver it to you :)

    Hi Lani, so far all the siopao recipes I've looked at used yeast dough. Practice ka lang, and don't add all the flour at the same time. Add enough until it forms a ball, then slowly add more as you knead it until you get the right consistensy. Plus, this dough has oil in it, so it becomes beautifully elastic as you knead it. OR, you can try pre-made dough from the store. Pizza dough should work with siopao too.

    I love siopao! I've tried making it before from a recipe on google but it didn't work. I haven't tried since. I was too exhausted with the experience and was very let down to attempt again. lol.

    Hi there, I tried this recipe and it is really good tasting and my friends love it. But one thing the colour is yellowish, can anyone tell how to make the siopao bun more whiter? thanks so much...

    Hi Anonymous, I'm glad you like this recipe. To get a whiter siopao dough, use the bleached all purpose flour next time.
