Husband-and-wife team Neil Syham and Angie Roca have earned a devoted following for their twin Filipino-inspired Smorgasburg stands, Lumpia Shack and Adobo Shack, specializing in seasonal riffs on their homelands traditional spring rolls (pictured) and vinegary stews, respec­tively. By the time the outdoor food bazaar winds down next month, the couple should be firmly ensconced in their first brick-and-mortar location, a West Village storefront made shacky with a corrugated-metal roof and rough-hewn wooden beams. The space is small and geared for takeout, but the menu will expand, ranging from signature lumpia, like the heritage-breed pork and the truffled adobo mushroom, to rice bowls and Philippine noodles.

Lumpia Shack Snackbar, 50 Greenwich Ave., nr. Perry St.; no phone yet.
