6/14/2017 – World Wednesday – Filipino


Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.

Recent question about F/D, so let’s go to the tape:

LearnedLeague precedent (LL73, MD20) – The Chinese spring roll family of foods includes the popiah in Singapore and Malaysia, the American egg roll, and what savory pastry common in Indonesia, the Philippines, and the Netherlands (where it has a slightly different spelling)?

Welp, I’ve never heard of lumpia or loempia. I’m sure lots of people enjoy it. These cuisines are certainly in the nationalities of food I don’t eat too often.

In order to get better at these countries, the World Wednesday Jeepney is making its 29th stop, as we visit the Philippines.

Tayo’y magsikain!
