While fast food chain Jollibee has removed Lumpiang Shanghai from its menus, the public can still satisfy their cravings for the Pinoy spring roll by visiting some eating establishments that offer the beloved food item.

Jollibee Foods Corp (JFC), the owner of the fast food, confirmed on October 5 that it has phased out one of its crowd favorites following online talks about its disappearance from the resto’s menu.

“We’re happy that people have enjoyed eating our Shanghai as much as we’ve enjoyed serving it to our loyal Jollibee customers, and we’d like to extend our sincerest appreciation for all the support. Unfortunately, our Shanghai is no longer available in our stores,” the firm said in a statement before.

“As we say goodbye to one of the staples in our menu, we invite you to try other new and delicious Jollibee meals such as our Super Meal with Chickenjoy, half Jolly Spaghetti, Regular Fries and drink; or the all-time favorite Burger Steak to satisfy your cravings,” JFC added.

Jollibee’s Lumpiang Shanghai was a menu offering that was usually paired with a sweet and tangy orange sauce.

It was among the fast food establishment’s most popular food items — next to its fried chicken, of course.

Meanwhile, here are some restaurants and other entities where the public can get their Lumpiang Shanghai fix:

Chowking 

Chowking, which is also owned by JFC, is among those who offer the Pinoy spring roll on its menu. It is usually accompanied by an orange sauce to provide additional flavor that complements the menu item.

The Lumpiang Shanghai is the most popular variety of lumpia, a crispy, deep-fried meal that evolved from Chinese spring rolls.

It is characterized by a savory filling that combines ground pork or beef with carrots, onions, various seasonings, and, occasionally, shrimps.

The Filipino spring roll is served as a staple dish on special and festive occasions, usually with a sweet and sour dipping sauce.

It is commonly seen on birthdays, reunions, graduations and other parties in the country, along with pancit, Pinoy-style spaghetti, lechon and palabok, among others.
