If you’ve ever spent time on or near a military base, chances are you’ve eaten Filipino food. Its this beautiful blend of simplicity and complex flavors that led it to be one of my favorite cuisines. We would go to the little restaurant in a strip mall, just outside of base, and be absolutely stuffed full with all the food they would give us. The one thing we always made sure to get extra of was the lumpia. Lumpia is the Filipino version of an egg roll, but so much better. Simple aromatics lightly seasoned build the base of this dish, but after that, you are free to play with the flavors as you like!
