Philippines have been influenced a lot by Chinese culture and its very evident by the food served and sold in the country. You can even find siomai sold by the streets. And this has been a favorite here in Cebu and the famous one is found in Tisa, Labangon. We call it Siomai sa Tisa. I hope you enjoy my very own pork siomai with quail eggs and chili sauce recipe.
