So my curiosity was piqued when I heard about Leap Year Lumpia, a small operation formed by some folks of Filipino ancestry who recognized the clear need to fill this void in the local food scene. (Aside: still need a Venezuelan place, please. Arepas!) Unsurprisingly, they quickly discovered that people really like lumpia.
And then I heard the best part: they make vegan lumpia! They offer both vegan and beef lumpia (with shrimp and pork in the works), which you can order directly from them in 24-piece packs. The Local Taco in Sylvan Park has been featuring the vegan lumpia as a special, and The Corner Pub in Green Hills is stocking the beef version. I'll be checking The Local Taco's Facebook page frequently to see if I can get some of those vegan lumpia. A couple of people have left positive comments, so perhaps they can find a permanent place on the menu.
