A street vendor in Chiang Mai, Thailand, selling various types of salapao

Siopao (Chinese: ; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: sio-pau) is a Hokkien term for bāozi (), literally meaning "steamed buns".[1] It has also been incorporated into Thai cuisine where it is called salapao (Thai: ซาลาเปา).[2]

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).[3] There is also a baked variety.[4]
