“Unsa imo lunch unya?” (What is your lunch later?)
This is the everyday question you’d often hear in SACS Campus.
“LuSo” the usual response or “Lumpia ni Senyang.” and another dirty joke is “Paresan og BuTu” (Bugnawng Tubig) (Translation: “Pair it with cold water.”)
LuSo is Lumpia and puSo, but it could mean another thing in our dialect, and don’t dare ask what it means.
Lumpia ni Senyang is a big part not only to every student in SACS (Saint Alphonsus Catholic School) but also to majority of Oponganons. So visiting the place is like a walk down to the memory lane.
It’s almost nostalgic!
Lumpia is “spring roll” in english, and hers is not the usual meaty ones. Her modest lumpia is a mix of bean sprouts and a bit of grind pork meats. What makes it special is her sauce- her SUPER SPICY SAUCE!
God knows we have been trying to replicate it, but there’s always something missing from our ingredients, and if you ask her, she’d just give you her beautiful smile! 🙂 UGH!!!
So, even if these students have graduated or are living out of town or country, whenever they step their foot in Lapu-Lapu, they always-it never fails- pay a visit to Nanay Senyang humble Lumpia and Puso eatery.
It doesn’t matter how many places each has visited, or how many great/expensive restaurants they have dined in- we always go back to where our hearts truly belong- Lumpia ni Senyang.
So what’s your Lumpia ni Senyang story?
