The most exciting Iloilo pasalubong treat and probably the most famous is the Special Siopao from Roberto’s Iloilo, a steamed bun stuffed with bacon strips, chicken pork adobo, eggs, and Chinese sausage. Roberto’s siopao stall is always busy with people waiting patiently to taste the bestselling, Special Siopao. The Queen Siopao is the most popular siopao variant and is always sold out before the store closes.
On the other hand, the King Siopao is equally as good, filled with the same ingredients but stuffed with ham instead of bacon. Jumbo Siopao and Regular Siopao are also available, which are also tasty Iloilo pasalubong snacks that you should be aware of bringing to your hometown.
Iloilo is everyone’s favorite place to unwind and enjoy the simplicity of the area. These Iloilo pasalubong treats are an excellent add-on to your Iloilo excursion and also a thoughtful idea to give to your family and friends back home, wherever you are in the country.
