Lumpia For Snacks

Lumpia is a popular Filipino snack food made from veggies, beans with egg and a little bit of meat. It is what you known as spring roll wrapped with yellow crepe. It is best with suharcane vinegar with lots of onions and a little bit of salt. I just had this awhile ago as snack. I bought in the road side. The good thing about this snack is the prize. These four spring rolls cost me 10 pesos or an equivalent of 25 cents (if my rough computation is correct). Cheap but healthy. Of course this price could only be in our place. What is your snack today? Photo is mine.

I love lumpia too. Lumpiang Shanghai costs only 5 pesos or $.10 a piece. Sometimes Manang would make lumpiang ubod (young trunk of coconut) or Lumpiang Tauge. I love them all. Today, I had "binutong", bihon and two pieces bread roll with coco jam and coffee. I was too full. That's because I forgot that I already have the binutong, I bought during our morning snacktime but instead ate an early lunch. So, during snack time this afternoon, I forgot I had that and bought bihon. I also have my packed dinner rolls. Oh my! Do you have binutong there too? I attach a picture of it for you to see. By the way, that lumpia looks so delicious. Is that with tauge?

I love lumpia... But I like the non-fried version better... It's like soft wrap with one end open showing the veggie fillings...

Spring rolls are tasty. I don't know if they are made with what you have mentioned in our country.

@ilocosboy I think the ingredient that differentiate Lumpia Semarang from all of the other kinds is that it has young bamboo shoots in the filling...

I know this kind of food. It's also popular in my place. But, here it is made of vegetables only and wrapped with crepe. It is usually served with sweet sauce made from starch, palm sugar, and somr spices. So yummy...

@ilocosboy yes. the lumpiang gulay here is also not prepared well, or maybe it has too many vegetables that the roll is not well-rolled.
