I ordered some Lumpia shanghai and other pinoy goodies at Filipino store online. And boy, it sure did taste good. I can make Lumpia but I don’t have a Lumpia wrapper. What’s available in the Korean store nearby our place is a Wanton wrapper.

Lumpiang Shanghai is the type of lumpia filled with ground pork or beef, minced onion, carrots, and spices with the mixture held together by beaten egg.

Lumpia are pastries of Chinese origin similar to spring rolls popular in Indonesia and the Philippines. The recipe, both fried and fresh versions, was brought by the Chinese immigrants from the Fujian province of China to Southeast Asia and became popular where they settled in Indonesia and the Philippines.
