Polland's Fresh Chinese Lumpia

I used to be such a picky eater as a kid.  And like all others, I once also had a great aversion for veggies.  But as time passed by and my palate changed, eating nutritious and healthy fare became a treat as well.

And one of my favorite vegetable-based dishes would be fresh lumpia -- preferably the ubod (heart palm)-filled kind.  And Polland, in my opinion, serves one of the best!

Polland kiosk

One usually associates Polland with chinese pastries and delicacies like their famous hopia in ube (purple yam) filling.  Their fresh chinese lumpia is simply different and is a step away from their usual offerings.

Pure pleasure awaits...

Julliened ubod topped with garlic and numerous tasty ingredients, all wrapped in a thin lumpia wrapper.  Best eaten with their signature sauce.  Pure bliss...


An order costs Php70 but is good enough for 2 people to share (unless you're like me who can eat one whole serving by my lonesome.)  J


Polland's fresh chinese lumpia are available at select malls within the Metro.



  1. Di ko pa natikman ang fresh lumpia ng Polland. Pag chinese lumpia diba yan yung may something crunchy na parang kulay gray na medyo may itim itim. hehehe! Di ko alam tawag basta gusto ko yun at malutong.

  2. thanks for sharing! i see alot of Polland's stall and i wonder what's good to eat from them :)

  3. haven't tried any fresh lumpia :) hahaha i only like the shanghai rolls kasi e.

  4. I love fresh Chinese lumpia but I still haven't tried the one that Polland offers. I hope to bump into one of their kiosks soon :)


  5. you are right. hopia immediately came into my mind when i saw the word polland. hmmm, have to try their fresh lumpia soon :)

  6. I got to give this a try one of these days. :-)

  7. may lumpia pala sila? ang akala ko rin nga hopia lang talaga ang tinda nila :)

  8. Ok na ok ang hopia ng Polland. Actually, yung hopia pa lang nila ang natitikman ko. I am yet to try their other offerings. Wow, at may kiosk na pala ang Polland sa mga malls.

  9. My boss introduced me to this. I was actually surprised that it was really good. =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
