Food ranking website Taste Atlas recently voted our Lumpiang Shanghai as the 2nd best street food in the world (Malaysia’s Roti canai got first place, FYI). In truth, you cannot deny the deliciousness of a savory lumpia–from the assorted combinations the rolls can be filled with to deep frying it until its golden and crispy. Here at Bitesized, our love for the fried spring roll knows no bounds. So as a tribute to its recent world ranking, we’re sharing with you this delicious compilation of some of the best lumpia recipes we’ve made.

Crispy Kare-Kareng Gulay Roll

We’re so used to eating kare-kare as a thick stew so to make it more fun and delectable, we decided to up the ante by making it into a fun veggie-filled lumpia roll using Mama Sita’s Kare-kareng Gulay Mix. Not only is it a must-try take on the usual kare-kare but it’s also a nice clean way to let the kiddos eat their veggies.

Sisig Dynamites

Pass on the sizzling hot plate and have your sisig in a crispy roll instead! Imagine every bite packed with juicy pork belly that’s been well-seasoned, grilled, and minced with aromatics plus the juicy crunch of green chili in a perfectly fried lumpia wrapper. It even has a flavorful liver dip to add to the richness of the dish.

Galunggong Lumpiang Shanghai

One of the best things about lumpia is that it elevates a simple ingredient into a much sought-after filling. Take this Galunggong Lumpia Shanghai, for instance–the lowly mackerel scad is prepped, seasoned, and cooked with other basic ingredients. After frying it turns into a crispy roll flavor bomb when eaten.

Cheesy Bangus Lumpia

Fish and cheese together? That’s right! And it’s mighty scrumptious too!  Smoked tinapang bangus is flaked and then added with aromatics and veggies. Afterward, it’s arranged with a stick of quick melting cheese in a lumpia wrapper then deep-fried until golden brown. The result: an addicting lumpia you can make any time you like!
