    I've been looking for lumpia, too! I know Bite in Venice serves it, but they were out the one night I went so I don't know if it's any good.

      Well, don't forget to include Hawaiian joints in your search. A lot of Hawaiian spots tend to include Filipino food like lumpia on the menu.

        What kind of lumpia? Indonesians call their egg rolls lumpia too, but it's vastly different than the Filipino version, if that's what your looking for. Also, Filipinos have the fresh lumpia and the lumpia shanghai. The former is "wet" and not fried, the latter is.

        Although not technically part of OC, check out Magic Wok in Artesia. I think their lumpias (both fresh and shanghai) are the best. And if you want to take your lumpias to go, or to bring them to a party, there's Luisa and Son in Cerritos. Always delectable successes at pot lucks!

        Cerritos and Artesia, that's where the best Pilipino places are.

        Here's a pic of the Magic Wok lumpia shanghais
