Filipino Food Review

What it is:
Veggies and sometimes meat, wrapped up in an crepe-like egg-based wrapper
What’s the deal: Basically, the Pinoy cousin to the egg roll, spring roll, and salad roll, lumpia is served either crisply fried or “fresh”, meaning unfried (also meaning less-delicious). It’s filled up with carrots, sprouts, and other veggies, with the option to add shaved chicken, shrimp, pork, or tofu. Often served with peanut sauce, it’s one of the culture’s favorite appetizers and the perfect gateway food for beginners.
