      Made these for Christmas Eve dinner for my parents and brother. I made MANY alterations: I only used shrimp, celery, carrot, and store-bought roasted, minced garlic for the filling. I also subbed some fresh oj for the vinegar in the sauce. Instead of deep-frying (I shy from that), I BAKED them. Also, for my picky brother, I filled HIS lumpias with pizza sauce and cheese - made him homemade pizza rolls. THe crepe batter is versatile: For my brother's I seasoned with pizza seasonings, for ours I used some ginger, brown sugar, and subbed some canned pineapple juice for the water. I give the recipe high points for it's versatility (and my parents RAVED about the sauce - "what? ketchup? No way!"), but I deduct one star because the entire meal took me 8 hours to prepare because the crepes were MUCH tougher to make. I hope my rating is fair.

      Great recipe. Just like I had in the Phillipines! Great hit with the family too. My wife even said that she wants me to fix it again, and soon. Nice and easy. This one is a keeper!!! Don't forget to make the dipping sauce to go with it.

      Food of the Gods!! My husband had these when he was in the Navy, and I finally found a good recipe. Totally Yum! I did cheat and use eggroll wrappers to save labor. These are addictive and i recommend them to everyone.
