Filipino Lumpia

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
I grew up eating either meat lumpia or veggie lumpia, but never combined. Kinda weird to me. I haven't even been to a restaurant that makes it like this. Also, they're not "egg rolls," as they're made with rice wrappers. If anything, they would be a Filipino version of a spring roll. But ask any Filipino, they're called lumpia! I'm sure this recipe is tasty but it's not what I'm used to, personally. Just some background info: my mom is from Manilla and dad is from Sto. Tomas. I'm from San Francisco. :)

Famous Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
This is a pretty good recipe and it has been a while since I found one online that includes vinegar! (I haven't had the need to look up this recipe online as I've been making this since I was a kid.) Try adding potatoes! It absorbs all the flavors and all of its wonderful goodness explodes in your mouth in one bite! Yum! *Side note: I was born in the US so I can't really say what's "authentic" and what's not...but from what I learned from my mom, who's from Manilla, and my dad, who's from Sto. Tomas, each region has their own way of making it. I don't think there's a wrong or right, authentic or not. It's all a matter of preference...until it gets mass produced and Panda Express makes a Filipino version. That would suck. Lol.
