    Olha's Note:

    Spring roll skins are also known as Shanghai-type spring roll skins and are available in some Asian markets. Lumpia skins, available in Philippine markets, may be substituted. Egg roll skins may also be substituted, but they are much thicker and not as nice as homemade spring roll skins.
