My Filipino friend Eric, was eager to order the lumpiang Shanghai — twelve pieces of fried, wrapped minced pork and shrimp. He said that his parents used to make these by the dozens and he would just pop them as snacks, like potato chips. Turns out, the lumpiang Shanghai are like triple deep-fried spring rolls, or an Asian version of Combos. When this dish first arrived on the table, I was a little hesitant to try it, as it looked like I might have a heart attack after eating the super-deep-fried mini wraps. However, after tasting one, I understood why these little treats are as easy to pop one after another like chips. Eric managed to eat eleven of them throughout our meal, despite the fact that we shared eight dishes — I was eager to try lots of things! They may be deep-fried, but in some sense I feel that they are healthier than chips since the ingredients are fresh and not processed.
