Fried Lumpia

I just love Fried Lumpia. The gastronomic sensation of having crispy fried lumpia dipped in vinegar garlic sauce always makes me salivate just with the thought. Be it filled with meat, vegetable or mix of both, its always an enjoyable treat of munching fried lumpia. Usually its a mixture of ground meat and vegetables when we make lumpia, but at times if we made a big batch of pancit molo filling then it also makes a good fried lumpia. Fishes like bangus and tilapia also makes delicious lumpia filling.

Beef Kare-Kare
