Lumpiang Shanghai is a well-known Filipino deep fried appetizer, and yes, it originated from the Philippines despite its misleading name "Shanghai" that sounds very Chinese. It is even actually the most basic type of lumpia in Filipino cuisines since we have many variant recipes of lumpia. The actual lumpia dish in general is of Chinese Filipino origin brought over by migrants from Fujian. Lumpiang Shanghai, considered one of its variant, was named that way because of its resemblance to Chinese cuisines. Lumpiang Shanghai consists mixtures of ground pork ( giniling ), with some carrot chunks and other spices like parsley, pepper and onion, then wrapped with an egg crepe also known as lumpia wrapper. To seal the crepe, it is advised to use a beaten egg. It is then to be fried in a medium heat pan waiting for it to achieve your desired crisp. Although it is known as appetizer, the food is really flexible. It can also be a viand, partnered with rice, or a merienda, knownly an afternoon snack!

You can eat Lumpiang Shanghai as it is, crispy and dry, or dip it in sauce or vinegar. Sauces can be banana ketchup, garlic mayonnaise and sweet chili sauce. Shanghai can be partnered with mostly any other dish and can also be a very convenient snack as it can be made into shorter and smaller pieces fit for a finger food!

No wonder it is one of the most ubiquitous Filipino dish for it can easily steal the hearts of many. It is even advisable for diet meal plans since lumpiang shanghai can also have its sub variant. You can have your own version of more healthy mixture of its fillings as long as the original fillings are there.
