The Siopao Itself
Roberto’s Siopao comes in a variety of flavor. Starting from Asado, bacon, bola-bola, and eggs. With this variety, I am sure that you could choose whichever you prefer for as long as they still have the stock. They regularly serve the King’s Siopao, but their real specialty is the Queen Siopao. Note that if they announce that the Queen Siopao will be sold, you must call for a reservation at least two days before the actual sale. Without the reservation, it will be challenging for you to get the Queen Siopao instantly.
