Lumpiang Togue is a variation of the spring roll. Instead of meat, Mung bean sprouts (locally known as togue) are used as the major ingredient. This dish is a popular appetizer and snack in the Philippines and it is best eaten when dipped in spicy vinegar with onions and whole peppercorn.
When I think of Lumpiang Togue, I remember the “Jollijeeps” in Makati who sells this for meryenda. I also remember my childhood days; one of our neighbors sells meryenda and lumpiang togue is one of the favorites. Of course, turon, bananaque, and camoteque are never left behind.
I like this dish for its simplicity. Good food need not to be expensive and tasty to be enjoyed.
