Lumpia ng Ubod is one of the foods from Philippines. They are fresh spring rolls which are made from finely cut (julienned) "Ubod", the heart of the Coconut cooked with Onions, Garlic, Carrots, Shrimps or Ground pork, Lettuce then wrapped in fresh Lumpia egg wrappers/rolls  lined with Lettuce leaves. Some people are adding finely ground fried peanuts before wrapping for added taste. (Please see article on Ubod)

Fresh Spring rolls or fresh Lumpia mean that they are not deep-fried like the Lumpiang Shanghai and Lumpiang Gulay. Lumpiang Gulay is served either fried or fresh

Lumpiang Ubod are served with a special Sauce made from cooking a mixture of vinegar, soy sauce, a bit of sugar and salt thickened with Cornstarch.

Below is a not so clear picture of Lumpiang Ubod. I chanced upon a street vendor of Lumpiang Ubod  during my brisk walk around Sampalok Lake in San Pablo City, Laguna while I was on vacation in my hometown. The freshly made egg rolls are soft, the Lettuce was fresh and crispy and it was made so special by its delicious Sauce. They were individually wrapped in plastic so it can be readily eaten while strolling around the lake.
