Dreams really do come true! And this, my friends, is what mine are made of. Throughout my time in the Philippines I’ve had my eyes on these precious bundles of joy. I mean come on...just look how cute and fluffy she is!
Typically, these chubby lil’ steamed buns, called Siopao, are filled with pork or chicken and made with a sticky rice dough (which contains egg), but today the amazing, adventurous @natzycool introduced me to the wonders of veganism in Manila. I’m so grateful that you are always up for trying new things together, you’ve opened my eyes to so much! I was so happy today, to learn of the thriving, rebellious, vegan sub-culture here in the city. Local, small-business owners making affordable, plant-based alternatives to traditional foods, from and for their communities, is one of the many things that gives me hope for the future. Thank you for the inspiration @bigbadvegan13. I hope to stay connected and continue learning more as I go. All of your food was absolutely delicious and left me wanting more! I finally felt like I got a taste of some of the popular Filipino dishes, that I’ve been craving since I first arrived. #salamatpo #smallbusinessowner #bigdreams #vegansoftheworld #vegansofmanila #plantbased #happyplace #foodrevolution #mouthwatering #foodporn #haveyourcakeandeatittoo #siopao #love #steamy #buns #notanad
