Puto Pao refers to Philippines steamed rice cake with meat fillings. Originally, Puto are just plain steamed rice cakes, but some enterprising Filipinos invented a Puto with a meat filling similar to the original Siopao which is steamed bun with meat filling. Hence, it was called Puto Pao from the combined name Puto + Pao from Siopao. Personal Note: My sister-in-law who is so fond of cooking native delicacies used to make Puto Pao when I was still in my home country, the Philippines. She can make good Puto so she also makes Puto Pao, by just adding a meat filling to her basic Puto recipe.
