Derived from the Hokkien lunpia (潤餅), fresh lumpia is arguably one of the most delicious, quintessentially Chinoy dishes that have ever come to be. These (non-fried) spring rolls are typically stuffed with a scrumptious mixture of pork, veggies, and crushed peanuts, then paired with a sweet soy-based sauce.
Popular and perfect for sharing with friends and family, a plateful of lumpia is definitely a must-have when celebrating the Lunar New Year. As a result, we’ve gathered four places that serve some of the best lumpia nationwide. Check them out here!
