Lumpia Place- 731 highway 33, trenton nj
I recently went to this new place in hamilton called Lumpia place...its american/filipino food..its one of those tiny little joints with scrumptious food..the filipino food is exceptionally good but they also serve american classics...I believe they do catering and takeout but i ate right in the restaurant and the food was hot, homecooked, delicious--real comfort food...definitely an experience for everyone to try--i cant wait to go back :) I've only tried filipino food at a couple of places so if there is anyone out there with a little more experience please let me know how Lumpia place compares ..thanx
I drove by this place a couple of weeks back and it was closed, so I decided to try it again around lunchtime this past Saturday. It was closed, and by the looks of it I don't think it's going to be reopening. The windows weren't covered up or anything, but being closed at 1PM on a Saturday isn't a good sign. Does anyone know what happened? Closing in two months seems pretty quick.
We went to Lumpia today. This place looks like a restaurant/grocery store with too few tables and too few groceries. They sell their food cafeteria style.
We had chicken adobo with a side of rice and green bean vermicelli mixed with what appears to be ramen, menudo with a side of vermicelli noodles and veggies. Finally, we also had a mysterious dish that had beef and possibly tripe mixed in pig's blood.
The menudo dish is a stew of potatoes, liver and pork.
My husband loved the beef and tripe. At first, I liked it and got qrossed out when I realized what it was. :). We got that with a side of white rice and lumpia rolls.
The lumpia rolls were delish! It was so good that I went back for seconds and also bought a vegetable roll that just came out of the fryer! MMMMMM!!!!!
The adobo and the menudo was good but my husband thought the pigs blood dish was the bomb! Literally and figuratively.
People were very nice and friendly in there. I would definitely go back!
Went with my family tonight for dinner. We had chicken adobo, lumpia shanghai, vegetable lumpia and pork BBQ (the meat on a stick). Everything was yummy, the prices were fair, and the people were polite and seemed very earnest in what they were doing. It was very similar to the food I've had at Filipino friend's homes growing up - tasty and made with care.
