Siopao (Chinese: 燒包; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: sio-pau) is a Hokkien term for bāozi (包子), literally meaning "steamed buns". It has also been incorporated into Thai cuisine where it is called salapao (Thai: ซาลาเปา).
A popular food item in the Philippines and Thailand, siopao and salapao do not require utensils to eat and can be consumed on-the-go. Like bāozi, there are different varieties based on stuffing: Asado or bola-bola (which may use pork, chicken, beef, shrimp or salted duck eggs). There is also a baked variety.
