In honor of National Lumpia Day (March 16), Local Kitchens, the micro food hall concept with a diverse mix of restaurants, has partnered with The Lumpia Company for a limited time pop-up at its the Palo Alto, Mountain View, San Jose, Lafayette and Cupertino locations. Best known for its takes on the classic Filipino spring roll, The Lumpia Company serves up over five varieties of lumpia, house-made sauces and rice plates offering Filipino flavors to the Oakland community and, during baseball season, to fans at the San Francisco Giants’ Oracle Park. The concept was founded in 2015 by Bay Area native food entrepreneur Alex Retodo and in 2019, East Bay rapper and Filipino food enthusiast, E-40, to join as co-owner as well. The restaurant joins several other restaurant concepts within Local Kitchens, where guests can mix and match dishes from all menus into a single order for pickup, dine-in, or delivery.

“We are beyond excited to bring The Lumpia Company to five of our Local Kitchens across the Peninsula and South Bay, for a limited time, and offer our guests this Oakland-based Filipino fusion snack that diversifies our guests’ menu options,” said Jon Goldsmith, CEO and Co-Founder of Local Kitchens in a statement. “Lumpia is a delicious snackable menu item that allows for easy preparation in our kitchens and it’s especially fitting to launch our pop up on National Lumpia Day! We’re confident that this concept will not only be a great addition to our wonderful mix of restaurant brands, but we’re thrilled to bring, what otherwise is only offered in the East Bay, to guests across the Peninsula and South Bay!”

Local Kitchens was founded by former DoorDash colleagues, CEO Jon Goldsmith and COO Andrew Munday, and CTO Jordan Bramble.

The micro food hall concept allows guests to mix and match cuisines from different restaurants in a single order.

“Growing up in Vallejo, a lot of my best friends were a part of the Filipino Community. I ate lumpia with the kids I grew up around, and it became one of my favorite dishes of all time.” Said E-40, Bay Area rap legend and co-owner of The Lumpia Company. “We’re excited for this Local Kitchens pop-up to bring lumpia to more communities around the Bay Area”
