I've yet to master the art of lumpia making, but I can make a wicked batch of lumpia dipping sauce. ;) This sauce is the standard condiment with a serving of lumpia (whether they are homemade or purchased in a restaurant and I've eaten an embarrassingly unfair amount of those delicious Filipino eggrolls in my lifetime.) One thing I truly miss about Southern California was easy access to lumpia. From Sunset's International Cooking. Good on won tons, fried rice, dim sum, etc. Posted here for safekeeping.
