The steamed buns western cousin, toasted Siopao and just for 8php (8pm onwards )

Rushing to a meeting one night I remembered that I haven’t had dinner , looked around and saw this small bread shop at the corner .

image

I decided to stop by ,and was sold on there cheap eats ,I parked the car and went down to have a look .

image

I asked the lady at the desk , what was good and she said Toasted Siopao , they are known for it and for 8php only. They come in chicken or pork and with a salted egg inside.

I was actually going to post the photo, but the cross section shot  never survived my first bite.  Not to say it’s small or anything but it was simple and good.

Other stuff on the menu.

I also had Kinalas or shredded pork noodle soup , a real steal for 50php. Fresh egg noodles topped worth bits of garlic , onions and shredded pork and innards.

While sipping the extremely hot  soup and somehow managing to drive i suddenly felt a bombardment of questions rushing to my head. As i reached the stoplight by  the  corner  i realized  why do i know so little  of these places ?

I was thinking , this little Bicol inspired bread house employees about a staff of 8 giving 9 families a source of livelihood while feeding the community with a rich legacy of home cook Filipino meals and servicing the near by hospital , residences and hungry passers by is dying out

What’s actually sad about this is how most people would want to go to the major burger chain down the road to get a burger for more that double the price of a toasted Siopao thats ours.
