Sweet & Savory Summer: Love on Lola’s Lumpia

Inspired by her mother’s original recipe, Ashley White, a first-generation Filipina mother of two young daughters, started Lola's Lumpia (pronounced LOOM-pee-ah) with her sister.
Ashley fills her lumpia (a Filipino spring-roll appetizer) with chopped vegetables, beef, chicken and pork, and offers a vegan option. A team helps with the prep, but Ashley carefully hand-rolls each tasty lumpia wrapper herself (no easy task!)
You can find Lola’s Lumpia at several Seattle-area restaurants including Super Six in Columbia City, Marination Amazon on Sixth Avenue downtown, Patrick’s Cafe & Bakery in White Center, Classic Eats in Burien and Elliott Bay Brewery in West Seattle. Or order them frozen and fry them in hot oil for five minutes to serve at your next family gathering.
