“Lumpia was at every single party and every single potluck,” she said. “I just loved it. Everyone loves lumpia. I continued to make it throughout the years, and every time I took it to a party, it would be gone in minutes.”

It’s so popular, in fact, that Wilson and her small staff are taking lumpia to the next level. On Oct. 31, they’re putting on a “LumpiaPalooza” where they’ll sell 20 different varieties of the treat stuffed with all kinds of wild sweet and savory ingredients.
