Like Indonesian food, this is something I had never seen or tried before coming to Holland. I had eaten Vietnamese food in London, but not these special fried spring rolls which are smaller and thinner than the Chinese ones.
Called loempia in Dutch, they are a poopular fast food sold at street stalls around the city and in markets.
Apparently it started in the 1980s, when boat refugees from Vietnam arrived in Holland and looked for a way to make a living by selling loempia in markets.
I couldn’t tell you exactly what is inside, but they sure do taste good!
