Dutch “Vietnamese Loempia”

You see them in every Dutch city, on every market and there are always people buying it. “Vietnamese Loempia’s”. But are those Loempia’s really Vietnamese or is it just a product that is created for the Dutch people?

Lumpia, Egg rolls, Spring rolls

When you search the internet to find out where it all started, you have to understand all differences between Lumpia, Egg rolls and Spring rolls. The main difference is the wrapper. There is no “1” recipe of the rolls and I don’t care if you call everything egg roll or Lumpia.
