What can I say, I just go for the siopao and sotanghon guisado. Still the same as it used to be in the 80's. Packed with people. Best to just order take away and eat it at home or somewhere with aircon.

no they don't have frozen siopao, but what we usually do is let it cool, refrigerate it and keep it in a cool dry place when traveling. it stays for 5 days more or less, when we bring it as pasalubong for friends
