There are two ways how to eat spring roll: serve the sauce separately,
use hand to eat the spring roll and just dip it in a sauce.

By using fork, pour the sauce on top of the spring roll, cut and mix well.

Here in Taiwan, we have so much bamboo shoots available all year long. Mostly, Taiwanese add bamboo shoots to their soup, sauteed vegetables, boil and dip it in a mayonnaise, or make it into a fermented bamboo shoots In my hometown (Angeles City), we have this favorite restaurant (Perfect Loaf) offering fresh bamboo shoots lumpia and I never tired eating it. I always wonder how they make the wrapper, here it is my first try!
This recipe once again is adapted from Christie Lee's Pagkaing Pinoy  cookbook. Originally, it has pork added into the mixture. How to make wrapper is not included in the book, I found it a Chinese cookbook and just made a twist.
