Who doesn’t love lumpiang shanghai? Also known as our version of spring rolls, lumpiang shanghai is the perfect party staple. The finger food is good eaten with rice as a viand, or as a side to accompany other dishes. It’s also great as a pulutan or bar chow with drinks. Truly, spring rolls are one of the food gods’ gifts to the Philippines and the Philippines’ gift to the rest of humanity.

Here’s one more reason to celebrate them. A famous fan joins the party from the other side of the globe: American rapper Cardi B. Apart from her cocktail recipes and dazzling nail art, the rapping diva shared some of her celebratory eats on her Instagram stories. The spread included Filipino favorites lumpiang shanghai and pancit.



According to her, the dishes were prepared by her aunt-in-law who has been around cooking our cuisine for 22 years already. The “Bodak Yellow” singer munched on some lumpia, which she likes to dip in barbecue sauce. She described it as “good as hell.”


It looks like lumpia gets an Okurr from Cardi!
