Popiah / Fresh Spring Roll

Text|Wei-Lin Lee・Illustrate|Wanyun

The fresh spring roll is a Chinese delicacy traditionally eaten during Tomb-sweeping Day. How it is cooked and what it is filled with vary by region. In northern Taiwan, people prefer it filled mainly with bonito-stock-boiled-shredded lettuce and chopped braised pork; in southern Taiwan, people prefer to add more sugar and peanut powder to sweeten it up.
