fresh lumpia

mcchowhound | Feb 11, 200207:30 PM

I wandered into Goldilocks, the Filipino cafeteria-style restaurant in the Pacific East Mall (home of Ranch 99) in El Cerrito/Richmond today. The person in front of me on line ordered fresh lumpia, and it looked so good, I tried it, too. (The server cross-examined me a bit to make sure I understood it was different from the "regular" - i.e. fried variety.)

Wow! I really loved it. It was a mix of fresh vegetables and maybe a little meat folded loosely into a crepe shell and heated in a (very) sweet sauce. The closest thing I've had to it is Vietnamese appetizer crepes, but I thought this was more interesting. A warning: the sauce might be too sweet for many people, so it might make sense to ask for less than the usual dose.

Are there other restaurants which serve this dish? I'd really like to try a few others to compare.
