A Visit to New Po Heng Stall in Ongpin Street

New Po Heng use to be located at 531 Quintin Paredes street ( formerly called Calle Rosario), ground floor of Uy Suy Bin building for more than 30 years.

New Po Heng – ( Amoy ) Chinese -style fresh lumpia

The art deco building stand as a rare jewel within post-modern buildings along Quintin Paredes street. However for the past several years, heritage advocates, concerned citizens and residents of the district were afraid that the building is going to get demolished to pave way for a higher and bigger condominium building.

The best-seller is their Chinese-Amoy style fresh “Lumpia” or Run Bing in Mandarin – tofu, chopped cabbage, mustard, shredded carrots, coriander with generous toppings of grounded peanuts, seaweed ( Ho-Ti), fried crushed sotanghon noodles, crushed fresh garlic, powdered sugar. It is cooked along with grounded shrimp heads to add more flavors, fresh lettuce leaves then rolled together in a thin lumpia wrapper made from flour.

wrapping the fresh lumpia

It also takes time to wrap the fresh lumpia into rolls.

 I would also suggest to eat first the lumpia without using the sauce. The price of their lumpia is Php 95.00 per order. There is a 20% discount for senior citizens and person’s with disability with valid Id’s presented before ordering.

New Po Heng / New Pou Heng

New Po Heng / New Pou Heng eventually moved out of the heritage building sometime in the later part of 2018 to a new location along 621 Carvajal  street. The quaint restaurant  along with their famous Chinese-Amoy style lumpia, pork maki, misua soup, kiampung and home-cooked meals are well-loved by the community.

Carvajal street

While a smaller stall opened in 2019 at Ongpin street near corner Tomas Mapua street just beside Mei Sum Tea House or ( Maxim’s Tea House). The Ongpin street had fewer selection and for those interested to try the other dishes, I would recommend to drop-by at the Carvajal street.

We decided to order for take outs and they also accepts bulk order. The lumpia stall had been featured in many blogs, vlogs, newspaper and television station.

Other Lumpia Variations

Lumpiang Ginayat na Papaya and Lumpiang Puso ng Saging had fillings made from shredded young papaya or shredded banana blossom. It is popular in some provinces with plenty of papaya and banana blossom. They are either fried or sauteed along with carrots and other vegetables. Young papaya or shredded banana blossom were used as a substitute for cabbage which is not always available.

Aling Ika’s fresh lumpia from Cavite City is a little bit different and have slightly different taste. Our family also have a different version of the Amoy- Chinese style fresh lumpia.
