“Loenpia/Lumpia”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Am dissappointed with the much talk about Semarang lumpia. Taste a bit different from the normal poppia goreng with hot and sweet chilli sauce. Also dissappointed with the duri lunak high pressured steam fish. It's rather bland.
Like the es teller and various es though.

“Best loenpia in the Loenpia town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Be prepared to be disappointed if you are impatient or like clean place to eat. Be prepared to be happy you have tried the best loenpia there is.

“Yummy loenpia..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Semarang is wellknown for good food with good price, and this is one of them. The loenpia is at its best when you eat it while still hot. So if you visit Semarang, dont forget to try or even bring this back home.

“Semarang's Best Identity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Semarang is known to be the home of Loenpia or Lunpia (spring rolls) in the whole of Indonesia and I can confidently vouch that the best is sold at Lunpia Gang Lombok, a small side shop located at a narrow road leading to the Tay Kak Sie Temple in Chinatown (Pecinan).

The main ingredient in the Lunpia is the young bamboo shoots which together with other stuff like prawns, eggs, some meat & also special spices are cooked to perfection & then rolled into spring rolls using thin crepe-like skins made of flour. At Gang Lombok you can have the wet (fresh) or deep-fried versions and they are sold at IDR10,000 a piece, which I must say is a bit stiff by local standards. But to me it is fair pricing, considering the quality and authenticity. It was so delicious that it was worth every bite. For takeaways above a certain quantity, they even pack the food in special hand-made straw-woven baskets (see photo attached).......interesting indeed!

It's already registered in my mind that the best food we had in Semarang was the Loenpia and it was really a special and superb treat. It is definitely associated with Semarang and we sure look forward very much to try it again.

“the original taste of Semarang's culinary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

there is no food like this. it looks a bit like an eggroll but its not, its Loenpia.
a fried eggroll rich with egg, shrimp and bamboo, form one combination of an Semarang's ultimate Fried snack.
