I’m a sucker for asian food. I love stir-fried noodles, siopao (white-dough with meat filling), and siomai (steamed meat filling). Whenever possible I eat the siomai fried and with fried rice. I first learned this method when I was still working in as a restaurant manager in Chowking, one of the many Chinese quick-serve restaurants in the Philippines. Mom bought the pictured siomai above as an afternoon snack but I opted to eat them as my dinner not with a rice but with a cup of sauteed monggo.
